(Newser) – If you had hoped to nab another Facebook co-founder after Mark Zuckerberg took the plunge, you just lost your final chance. Eduardo Saverin has confirmed (on Facebook, naturally) that he married Elaine Andriejanssen on June 27. "I am incredibly happy and thankful to have married the love of my life," Saverin posted last night. "I will wake up every single day of my life with an ingrained smile because of my beautiful, intelligent and caring wife Elaine."

After adding that he's looking forward to starting a family, Saverin—a native of Brazil who moved to the US, then to Singapore in 2009—posted the same message in Portuguese, per the Straits Times. He's said to be worth $5 billion; Andriejanssen is Indonesian and Chinese and reportedly works in finance. The paper, meanwhile, gives a snapshot into the relationship statuses of the other four Facebook co-founders. (Saverin insists there's no bad blood between himself and Zuckerberg.)
