Actress and comedian Niecy Nash surprised fans Monday posting a photo of her wedding. The star is known for her appearances on shows like Claws, Scream Queens, and Reno 911!.
“Mrs. Carol Denise Betts,” Nash wrote to Twitter. Though she’s known popularly as Niecy Nash, the actress’s legal name is Carol Denise. She was previously married to Jay Tucker and Don Nash.
In the photo, Nash appears in a wedding gown, having clearly just been wed to Jessica Betts, who also appears in the photo. Betts is a musician. The two had not publicly been known as a couple prior to the post. Nash was not publicly known to be queer either, though she played a lesbian doctor on The Mindy Project in 2014. She notably kissed Mindy Kaling as a part of the role.
Details of the wedding ceremony are not yet known. Betts confirmed the news on Instagram writing “I got a whole wife.”
The pair have posted about one another prior. While on the set of Claws, a queer inclusive TNT series Nash led, the pair posted a photo where Nash referred to Betts as her “homegirl.” The singer also played the role of Nadege in the series for at least one episode in 2018.
The news makes Nash the latest in the string of high-profile Black, sapphic women with love life updates. Raven-Symone announced her marriage to her wife Miranda Pearman-Maday in June. Da Brat clarified speculation about her sexuality, and confirmed that she was seeing Jesseca Dupart in March.
Congratulations to Mrs. and Mrs. Carol and Jessica Betts.
