Niecy Nash is opening up about her marriage to Jessica Betts, who she wed late last month.

The 50-year-old star chatted with People about her surprise ceremony and announcement, and shared that she doesn’t consider her marriage to be a coming out moment for her at all.

“I don’t feel like my marriage is my coming out of anywhere, but rather a going into myself and being honest about who I love,” Niecy told the magazine. “And I’m not limiting myself on what that love is supposed to look like.”

She continued, “I was not suppressing my sexuality my whole life. I love who I love. At one point in my life, I married twice and I love those people, and today I love this person. I’ve done everything I wanted to do on my own terms and my own way.”

Before marrying Jessica, Niecy was married to Don Nash for 10 years, and just recently, Jay Tucker. She and Jay‘s divorce was finalized in March of this year.

Niecy also talked about her relationship with Jessica blossomed into love.

“I loved her before I was in love with her because she is such a special human being,” she said. “But we began to see each other in a way we never had before. Sometimes you get so broken by love, you run from it. But I’ve learned that you should always hold space for magic because it can happen at any time.”

Just recently, Niecy was also invited to join The Academy alongside these other celebrities.
