Is Manti Te’o married?
Te’o married Jovi Engbino in 2020, the Deseret News reported.

“Yesterday I got to marry my best friend and the love of my life in an intimate beach ceremony,” Engbino shared in her own Instagram post on Aug. 30. “Although this was not how we envisioned our ceremony, it was perfect. We will be having our reception and celebration when Temples and venues open back up so we can share this special occasion with our families and I couldn’t be more excited.”
According to Te’o’s Instagram account, the couple had a sealing ceremony in the Mount Timpanogos Utah Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in November 2021.
