Some celebrities are more open about their private lives than others. Some people share pretty much everything on social media, and others are intentional about keeping their private lives private. Then, there are those celebrities that do things that surprise pretty much everyone.

Niecy Nash’s first marriage was to Don Nash. The couple got married in 1997 but called it quits 10 years later in 2007.

After a break from married life, Nash tied the knot again. This time the lucky man was Jay Tucker. The couple got married in Malibu in 2011, but again, this marriage didn’t last. The couple’s divorce was finalized in 2019.

After her second divorce, Nash said that it was too early for her to even think about dating again. She was not interested in marriage at that time.

Well, it hasn’t been all that long since her divorce, but the actress has tied the knot a third time. To everyone’s surprise, this time she married a woman, singer Jessica Betts.

Nash announced the news to her followers via a photo she posted on Instagram. In the photo, Nash is wearing a gorgeous wedding dress and holding a bouquet triumphantly over her head. Betts is wearing a white suit, a huge smile on her face.

Nash’s followers have shared their congratulations in the comments. One person wrote, “Yeeeeees!!! Love always wins!!!!”

Another comment reads, “Congratulations @niecynash1 I LOVE THIS❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ #sohappy”

Before this wedding announcement on Instagram, Nash had never mentioned publicly that she was part of the LGBTQ community. Talk about a bold way to come out!

Nash and Betts have actually known each other for a long time. For more about their relationship and marriage, watch the video below.

Some of Nash’s fans are very surprised by her announcement. One viewer commented, “WOW! Didn’t see that coming. I wonder if this is a spontaneous reaction to histrionic negative relationships with men? Or was she denying her true self? I sure wish she’d shock me again by announcing that another network has picked up Claws and we can continue to enjoy the ridiculousness of its crazy cast of characters. ??? Love you Neicy? Be happy?”

Does it surprise you that Niecy Nash has remarried? Does it surprise you that she’s part of the LGBTQ community?
