"The WBO Family wishes lots of love and happiness to the recently married couple, Unified WBO Super Middleweight Champion Saúl 'Canelo' Álvarez and Fernanda Gómez," the post read.
Early in 2021, Alvarez spoke briefly of his marriage to Gomez.
"I feel way different, I am a happy man, more than before," he told BT Sport.
Do Alvarez and Gomez have children?
Alvarez and Gomez have one child together, but Alvarez has two more children from different relationships.
Gomez and Alvarez share a daughter, Maria Fernanda, who was born in 2017.
Alvarez, however, first became a father at the age of 16, just a year into his professional career as a boxer.
That was from his relationship with Karen Beltran, and Alvarez is still in touch with 14-year-old daughter Emily Cinnamon.
Alvarez then has a third child, a son, with former business partner and ex-girlfriend Nadia Sepulveda.
Saul Adiel was born in 2019, presumably during a period where Alvarez and Gomez were briefly separated.
