MINNEAPOLIS — U.S. Representative Ilhan Omar announced on Instagram Wednesday night she has remarried.

The announcement comes after her divorce in October of 2019.

The Instagram post reads "Got married! From partners in politics to life partners, so blessed. Alhamdulillah ❤"

Omar filed for divorce from her husband in October. The case file dated Oct. 4 shows that the 37-year-old Omar filed for a dissolution of her marriage to Ahmed Abdisalan Hirsi, citing an "irretrievable breakdown" of the relationship. The documents state that Omar and Hirsi were married on Jan. 5, 2018, and are parents to three children ages 16, 13 and 7.

A divorce filing by the wife of the political consultant who works with Omar accused the congresswoman of having an affair with her husband. Beth Mynett, wife of Tim Mynett, says her husband confessed his "devastating and shocking declaration of love" for Omar in April. Both Tim Mynett and Omar denied the accusation.
