David Parnes Shared the Best Update About His Brother Michael
After battling a brain tumor, the MDLLA agent's brother just celebrated a joyous life moment.
Many mazels are in order! David Parnes took to Instagram this week to share some exciting news about his brother, Michael Parnes. The Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles agent's brother recently got married to Ellia Lee (well, now Ellia Parnes!).
"Congratulations to my big brother [Michael] and my sister in law [Ellia] on their wedding. You are the two sweetest, kindest people I know and I love you to the moon and back," he wrote on Instagram, sharing photos from the couple's wedding day. David's brother from another mother and his fellow MDLLA agent, James Harris, commented on the Instagram post by sharing a few heart emojis.
Michael also shared some footage from their big day, captioning it, "just married." James also commented with heart emojis on that Instagram, as well, so he seems pretty excited for his pal.
The dreamy wedding appears to have taken place at the Four Seasons Hotel in Hampshire, England, based on the location tagged on the Instagram. Of course, the Parnes family is from England, and it appears that Ellia is as well, based on her Instagram bio (which states that she is a "UK ecommerce manager").
Several months back, Michael and Ellia both posted a photo that appears to be from the day Michael proposed (the getting down on one knee pose kind of gives it away). "I adore you my darling fiancée Ellia, the lady I was always looking for," he captioned the photo. She also shared the photo to her Instagram and captioned the moment, "You are my everything and I feel blessed. Thank you for making me the happiest girl in the world."
The happy life update comes several years after Michael shared that he had been diagnosed with a brain tumor. David spoke about it on MDLLA, and the brothers also spoke to The Daily Dish about the diagnosis and treatment plan back in 2016. "Seeing him as he is and how he's come through and how he's dealt with it puts everything into perspective," David said at the time. "I knew he was an amazing person before. He's literally just incredible, but seeing him how he's dealt with this makes me realize that even more."
Michael also shared how much his family's support meant while he was going through everything in that same interview at the time: "My brother has been incredible. My sisters, of which I have two, and my mom and dad and my stepmom have been incredible support. They always turn up, hang out with me, bring me some food — just basic stuff. And my friends have been incredible as well. I can't tell you the support I've had. It helps to have friends and family."
Well, it looks like there's one more member of the Parnes family to lean on now that Ellia and Michael walked down the aisle!
