Kerala has a new power couple. It's wedding bells for Kerala MLA Sabarinadhan and Thiruvananthapuram sub-collector Divya S Iyer.

In what has taken social media by storm, Aruvikkara MLA Sabarinadhan took to Facebook to announce that he and sub-collector Divya Iyer will tie the knot. 

Posting a photo of them together, the MLA said they shared similar ideas and thoughts and their attitude towards society had brought them together.

"I first met Divya in Thiruvananthapuram and soon realized that many of our ideas were similar. With the blessings of both our families, Divya is set to become my companion," the Congress MLA wrote on Facebook.

An engineering and MBA graduate, Sabarinadhan is the son of former Kerala Assembly Speaker G Karthikeyan. Sabarinadhan took the plunge into politics after his father's demise and was elected as the MLA of Aruvkkara constituency in Thiruvananthapuram in 2015.

Divya Iyer made headlines in 2016 when she was the Assistant Collector of Kottayam district. She had came out with an innovative way to encourage people to cast their votes, composing and singing a song ahead of the Assembly Elections in May last year. She is a 2014 batch IAS officer and practives medicine in her free time, according to reports

In a recent interview to The Hindu, she had called herself "a good kid at school," adding that she used to be stuidious. Divya studied in Holy Angels Convent School in Thiruvananthapuram, which is also the time she began to cherish the dream of becoming an IAS officer. She later joined Christian Medical College in Vellore to pursue medicine.
