Actress and Comedian Niecy Nash shocked fans after she shared on social media a photo of her recent wedding to singer Jessica Betts.

Although the news was welcomed by many, some of Nash’s fans were left stunned considering the fact that she has never publicly admitted to being gay.
Dam Had no idea Niecy Nash was gay.. I thought she was married to a dude.— Vern (@blackvern) September 1, 2020
Nash, who was previously married to Jay Tucker, filed for divorce in December 2019, but according to TMZ, the divorce was not finalized until June 2020.
As Nash said in her Instagram story – #PlotTwist….. but we think the best response was from Nash’s celebrity friend and wedding guest Ava Duvernay who tweeted, “May you both have more happiness than your hearts can hold.”
With everything going on in the world today, any form of love is welcomed and much needed. We congratulate the lovely couple on their nuptials!
