Likewise, on Monday, the beautiful actress Niecy shared the wedding picture of them walking down the aisle. Not to mention, both of them looked absolutely stunning in their white attire. Nash donned the body-hugging open white gown while Betts looked dandy in her white two-piece suit.
Along with it, Nash posted a caption that read, “Ms. Carol Denise Betts,” followed by hashtag reading “#LoveWins.”
Niecy Nash got divorced last year on October
The news, happy as it is undoubtedly came as a shock to many fans considering how she kept her sexuality hidden all these years. And last year in October, Nash had announced her divorce with her former husband, Jay Walker.
While accepting the Vanguard Award at the 2020 Essence Black Women in Hollywood Awards Luncheon, actress Niecy publicly elaborated her divorce.
“Trust that it is so much easier to walk in your truth than it is to run towards a lie. Make decision about what you now know. You gotta own the part you play, that’s important. You gotta forgive yourself and others.”
At that time, not many understood the statement and circumstances that the two went apart. However, now it all makes sense.
Moreover, it is the first time that Nash has openly spoken about being a queer and her relationship with singer Betts. Her girlfriend and now wife, Jessica Betts, came to prominence after competing and winning Missy Elliott’s reality show ‘The Road to Stardom’ back in 2005.
