The Flash Star Grant Gustin; A Year Away From Marriage
Grant and Andrea started their relationship back in 2016. During that year, Grant was rumored to have a relationship with an unknown girl in Instagram 'LA Thoma'. LA Thoma who is an Instagram personality had posted several pictures with Gustin that grabbed the attention of Gustin's fans in 2016.
In 2017, Gustin spilled the beans about his secret relationship and shocked his 5.7 million followers when he shared the pictures with LA Thoma putting an engagement ring on her finger. The girl in the picture was his beautiful girlfriend Andrea Thomas also known on Instagram as LA Thoma.
Following their engagement, there were rumors of the pair getting married in a private ceremony in Malaysia. The Star Online was first to report the news of them tying knots in a traditional wedding but the actor strongly denied the false rumors claiming that he was there with Thoma to celebrate their traditional Kadazan ceremony, not to get married. He took to Instagram and posted a photo with the caption stating,
"It was incorrectly reported, without our permission that LA (Thoma) and I had a private wedding while we were here (Malaysia), but that’s not quite the truth. We did have a beautiful, symbolic Kadazan ceremony to honor LA’s ancestors."
The couple was seen together in Sabah, Malaysia on December 17, 2017. Some Sources reported that the couple had been planning for their wedding in USA.
The couples also posted pictures of their visit to Malaysia.
Happy Holidays from Malaysia! I’ve been mostly off social media because the Majalap family is non-stop and we’ve been running around and partying and eating and drinking since we got here. I did want to clear something up before the internet ran with it. It was incorrectly reported, without our permission that LA and I had a private wedding while we were here, but that’s not quite the truth. While we did have a beautiful, symbolic Kadazan ceremony to honor LA’s ancestors, we still won’t tie the knot until next year. (Also I’m still 27 for another few weeks.. the article got a couple things wrong) We’ve had a great time while we were in Sabah. LA’s GIGANTIC family is awesome. We got to hang out with Masidi Manjun, the Minister of Tourism, and had an incredible stay at Gaya Island Resort our first few days. Many pictures to come once we’re back in North America.
The controversy ended with the post and Grant also revealed that he won't be getting married until next year in 2019. His fiance and soon-to-be wife, Andrea Thoma is a 29-year-old physical therapist, born and raised in Ohio. She's half-Kadazan and half White regarding her descent.
Well, it's a good news for all the fans of Gustin and we're eagerly waiting for the beautiful pair to get married soon!
