Capital mayor and 2012 presidential hopeful Marcelo Ebrard wed former Honduran diplomat Rosalinda Bueso here Friday in a small civil ceremony, Mexican media said.

It is the third marriage for the Mexico City mayor.

The couple only went public with their romance in August, giving an interview to gossip magazine Quien.

Bueso, 34, the Honduran ambassador to Mexico at the time of the June 2009 coup that toppled President Mel Zelaya, was quickly fired by the new regime in Tegucigalpa.

The former ambassador decided to stay in Mexico City and ended up in a relationship with Ebrard, who divorced his second wife, Mexican actress Mariagna Prats, at the beginning of this year.

The 51-year-old mayor, who has three children by first wife Francesca Ramos, plans to seek the 2012 presidential nomination of the center-left PRD party

If Ebrard gets the nod, he may square off in the general election with the former governor of Mexico state, Enrique Peña Nieto, widely expected to be the candidate of the main opposition Institutional Revolutionary Party, or PRI.

Like Ebrard, Peña Nieto is handsome, charismatic and married to a glamorous woman: actress Angelica "La Gaviota" Rivera.

A favorite has yet to emerge in the contest for the nomination of the governing conservative National Action Party, whose victory in the 2000 election ended 71 years of rule by the PRI, but none of the current aspirants rivals Ebrard or Peña Nieto in media appeal.
