derailed his political career broke her silence about the infamous affair during a Spanish-language interview, explaining that she’s still acclimating to her life as the fiancée of an American politician.

“When we’re together, we live together,” Maria Belen Chapur told Argentinian news outlet InfobaeTV over the weekend.

“When we’re together, we live together,” a visibly nervous Chapur told Carlos Mira on InfobaeTV, the new video streaming venture of the website to which Chapur still contributes columns. “We’re itinerant, partly in Washington, partly in Charleston.”

Although Sanford used to come to Buenos Aires, “it’s more complicated for him now” since he won election to the U.S. House of Representatives. He has not come to Argentina this year. She, however, spends about half her time in the Argentine capital.

“I’m happy,” she added.

The interview was the first time Chapur has spoken openly about her relationship with Sanford, whose extramarital affair with Chapur was revealed in 2009 when he disappeared from the governor’s mansion for days after telling his staff he was going to hike the Appalachian Trail. Instead, he flew to Argentina.

The two are now engaged, and Chapur appeared on stage with Sanford in May when he declared victory in a special congressional election to replace Tim Scott after Scott was named to the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Jim DeMint.

But the Argentine has kept a decidedly low profile, refusing to speak to the news media both during the campaign, which featured negative publicity generated by a trespassing complaint against Sanford filed by his ex-wife, and since he was sworn in.
