The first known Muslim Miss USA has converted to Christianity ahead of her wedding.

Rima Fakih, 30, who won the title in May 2010, is set to tie the knot with Wassim Salibi, a Maronite Christian music producer .

The former Miss Michigan converted to his faith in April and both will travel to Lebanon, where she was born, for the wedding.

Fakih grew up in a Shia family and has stated that they had a liberal approach to religion, refusing to pick sides between Muslims and Christians and observing both kinds of holidays.

‘We’re more of a spiritual family,’ Fakih said in an interview published by theHuffington Post not long after she became Miss USA.
