Anto tragically lost her beloved dog last year and took to social media to express her difficulty processing its passing.
When did they get married?
It is not exactly clear when Mito and Anto got together but likely to be 2014 at the latest – Mito’s first Instagram post from April of that year has them together on the golf course.
That means she has been on the scene throughout his professional golf career, with the Santiago-born star making the switch in 2015 after reaching No5 in the World Amateur Golf Ranking that August.
The happy couple got engaged in January 2021 and then tied the knot legally last December.
However, their ceremony and celebration was in January this year.
The couple got legally married back in December 2021
They tied the knot in front of friends and family a month later
They got married in Parque Lo Arcaya in Chile, Pereira’s homeland.
He posted pictures of their special day – which included the newlyweds running through a tunnel as spotted at so many weddings.
However, this one had a personal twist, with guests raising golf clubs for the special moment.
Do they have any children together?
There is no sign of any children on the scene at this stage.
Plus it does not look like they have got a new dog yet after their bereavement in 2021.
So for now, Mito and Anto are enjoying married life just the two of them – and will have some extra spending money once the pay cheque from the PGA Championship drops in their bank account.
They enjoy travelling and discovering new places together
