Malayalam serial and movie actress Yamuna has found love for the second time in her life. The actress has tied the knot with Devan Ayyankeril at Kollur Mookambika Temple on Monday (December 7).The traditional Hindu wedding was attended by her daughters and close family/friends.
Yamuna said to a malayalam daily that "Devan Ayyankeril is my husband's name. He had been living in USA working as a psychotherapist. I strongly believe that Sree Padhmanabha Swamy heard my prayer for a good human being as my husband and it materialized on December 7 th at Kollur Mookambika Temple," She also added that "My 10-year-old daughter Aashmi and 15-year-old Aami jokingly told me they are not at marriageable age yet as someone suggested online. I hope you will all support me as you always have and thank you all. Your Yamuna".
Devan hails from Mavelikkara and has been residing in USA for the last 30 years. It is also second marriage for Devan. He has a daughter(Fiona) from first marriage who is currently in college.
In a recent interview she said even though her friends and family were constantly asking her to rethink about marriage as it was more than 5 years after divorce, she never felt the need to do so as she was busy with her daughters and career. "But, when the lockdown started, my kids were at their father's place and for months together, I was stuck within the four walls of my flat. Words can't describe the mental pressure I was going through of not having anyone near me. That's when I realized I needed companionship and decided to get married," she said.
