LOS ANGELES (AP) – Actor and comedian Niecy Nash surprised fans with her weekend wedding to singer Jessica Betts.
Nash and Betts posted Twitter and Instagram photos of their outdoor wedding ceremony in a lush garden on Monday.
Nash, whose official first name is Carol, captioned the photo “Mrs. Carol Denise Betts,” adding a rainbow emoji and the hashtag #LoveWins. ”
“I have a very wife,” Betts wrote in her own caption.
The couple had kept their relationship a secret, and the ceremony’s reveal also served as a coming out for Nash, who had never been in a public relationship with a woman before.
“#PlotTwist,” she wrote in another Instagram post featuring a photo of herself and Betts, along with a rainbow emoji.
Nash’s divorce from husband Jayson Tucker was finalized in March.
50-year-old Nash is known for her roles on the television series ‘Reno 911’, ‘Never Have I Ever’ and ‘Claws’.
