Ilhan Omar has announced her marriage to the man who served as her political consultant, Tim Mynett.
Through an Instagram, Omar said:“Got married! From partners in politics to life partners, so blessed. Alhamdulillah.”
Word of a romance between the Minnesota Democratic Party Congresswoman Omar and Mynett became more than just talk last August when Mynett’s then-wife, Beth Mynett, 55, filed for divorce from her 38-year-old husband.
In court papers, Beth Mynett claimed her husband’s traveling and work hours may have been more related to his affair with Omar than to his actual work commitments.
Beth and Tim Mynett are parents of a teenage son.
Last October, Omar filed for divorce from her husband, Ahmed Hirsi, the father of their three children.
“There has been an irretrievable breakdown of the marriage relationship,” Omar claimed in court documents filed on her 38th birthday.
Omar claimed neither partner was seeking an order of protection and she asked the court to grant them “joint legal and physical custody” of their three minor children.
The Omar-Hirsi divorce was finalized in November, according to reports.
Hirsi then found a new girlfriend and remarried just 37 days later in Somalia.
