    That's a joke, right? I'm thinking so from the smiley after it.

    How does that mean it's not a joke then? He could have announced it, as a joke.

    Vitya IS his significant other. Whether the engagement was a joke or not we shall see.

    Is Vitya Russian? What is his profession?

    Good for them!

    LOL @ the cute name. As was stated in the other thread, his real full name is Victor Voronov (though, I gotta admit, Vitya Zvesda has a nice ring to it) . And yes, to the lawyer thing.

    Vitya is the Russian informal version of Victor. (Like Lyosha for Alexei, Sasha for Alexander, Masha for Maria, etc.)

    Is this for real? Because surely his friends would be congratulating him and posting it on their own Twitter, no?

    If it's true, good for him. But I also wouldn't be surprised if he meant something else - he does tend to throw around things like "my future wife" about his friend Meg. He seems to like being coy like that.

    I'll give Johnny this - when he indicates his affinity for all things Russian, he isn't joking. ;)

    So he is on his way to Russian Citizenship now. Russia would love him on their team for Sochi:)

    Good for you, Johnny. You've certainly earned some happiness in your life. Love is difficult enough to find and particularly so in such a public life. Much joy to the four of you!

    But why would Vitya propose to him in front of a crowd?

    When did this happen? From what I've heard, Johnny's mom told people this past Monday that there was no engagement.

    Yeah, I'm sure that the Russian Orthodox Church & the Russian Gvt will recognize a wedding between Johnny & Vitya. :lol: Remember, it's Russia. Besides, I bet that Johnny was joking.

    Just an update, Vitya (Victor) and Johnny are engaged, Johnny said in an interview a few weeks ago that Vitya was not ready for the public announcement which is why Johnny removed it from his twitter and Patti denied it in New York. But in recent interviews Johnny has been referring to Vitya as his fiancee and both Vitya and Johnny have posted photos of the happy couple on twitter. Johnny was in Atlanta two weeks ago to meet Vitya's family and Vitya spent Christmas with Johnny's extended family in Delaware and Pennsylvania.
