CNN is reporting that Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, D-New York, will marry his longtime partner, designer Randy Florke, the couple announced Monday.
“After 21 years together, we are excited for the next step in our journey as a family,” they said in a statement. “For decades, we’ve fought to ensure that all families can experience the joys of loving commitment and we are proud to have our friends and family share this special moment with us in the near future.”
With their marriage, Maloney will become the second member of Congress to legally wed his same-sex partner while in office. Former Rep. Barney Frank, D-Massachusetts, became the first to do so in 2012.
Maloney and Florke, who have three adopted children and live in Cold Spring, New York, got engaged on Christmas Day.0
