Congrats are in order for Niecy Nash!

The 50-year-old actress and comedian announced her marriage to musician Jessica Betts on Twitter and Instagram on Monday, sharing a stunning snap from their wedding day

The star, known for her appearances on shows like Claws, Scream Queens, and Reno 911!, wrote on Twitter: “Mrs. Carol Denise Betts.”



Betts shared the image to her own page, writing, “I got a whole Wife 👽💍.”

“The two had not publicly been known as a couple prior to the post,” reports Out.com. “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.”

“This marks Nash’s third marriage. She was previously married to Don Nash from 1994 to 2007, and Jay Tucker since 2011,” according to ET. “The Claws star filed for divorce from Tucker in December 2019, two months after calling it quits.”

While on the set of Claws, a queer inclusive TNT series Nash led, the pair posted a photo in 2018 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.
