Buzz Aldrin revealed he married his “long-time love” on her 93rd birthday and said they were “excited as eloping teenagers”.

The retired astronaut – the second man to set foot on the moon – said he worked with Dr. Anca Faur, who is said to be 63, “got married” in a small ceremony in Los Angeles.

He wrote on Twitter: “On my 93rd birthday and the day I will also be honoured by Living Legends of Aviation, I am pleased to announce that my long-time love Dr Anca Faur and I have tied the knot. We were joined in holy matrimony in a small private ceremony in Los Angeles and are as excited as eloping teenagers,” reports Sky.

Aldrin retired from NASA in July 1971 and served as commanding officer of the Aerospace Research Pilot School at Edwards Air Force Base in California until his retirement from the Air Force in 1972.

He went on to write nine books and created a think tank called the Human SpaceFlight Institute, which should be fully open by the end of the year.

Dr Faur is executive vice president of Buzz Aldrin Ventures LLC, according to LinkedIn, and holds a PhD in chemical engineering from the University of Pittsburgh.

Aldrin was previously married three times, but each of them ended in divorce.

He shares three children – James, Janice and Andrew – with his first wife, Joan Ann Archer.
