Bryshere Gray, who shares a close bond with his mom, Andria Mayberry, was on hand to walk her down the aisle and give her away to her new husband. The proud mom recently shared photos from the joyous occasion.
Before finding fame on “Empire,” Gray was raised by a single mother who fought hard for her son to become successful despite an ADHD diagnosis.
It was not shocking, therefore, to see him beaming with pride and joy as he walked her down the aisle on her wedding day last October.
Mayberry recently shared photos from the event but revealed in several captions that the wedding took place on October 11, 2018.
In one post from earlier this month, Gray, 25, can be seen walking his mom and looking dapper in a grey tuxedo. The camera captured him, giving his mom a look full of love, and it’s such an adorable sight.
In a separate video post, the actor/rapper posed for pictures with his new stepdad and the groomsmen, and in another, he danced with his mom.
“Another great moment: Mother and Son Dance at my Wedding!” Mayberry captioned the pic. “#Thank you, Lord!”
Mayberry and Gray share a strong bond, and although the proud mom has graced several red carpets alongside her celebrity son, she continues to work and make her own money.
While promoting her first book on “The Real” in 2017, the nurse/entrepreneur explained why she’s not about to start relying on her son’s earnings.
“I been there 16 years,” Mayberry said of her career. “I love the nursing field, and I’m an independent woman.”
“I make my own money,” she added, pointing out that she’d like Gray to “save his money.”
The “New Edition Story” star, who also goes by the stage name “Yazz The Greatest,” was diagnosed with ADHD at the age of 5.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website:
“ADHD is one of the most common neurodevelopmental disorders of childhood. It is usually first diagnosed in childhood and often lasts into adulthood. Children with ADHD may have trouble paying attention, controlling impulsive behaviors (may act without thinking about what the result will be), or be overly active.”
Mayberry confessed on “The Real” that it was initially difficult for her to accept that her son might have a disorder.
“To effectively help him, I had to open my mind,” she noted.
Mayberry wrote “Before Empire: Raising Bryshere Gray “Yazz the Greatest,” a book that chronicles her struggles and how she successfully raised two children (Gray and his sister Brianna), including one who is famous.
“I want to educate and empower women and inspire them. This is in my heart and soul. I have been there; I want women to know you are not alone,” she told Rolling Out in 2017.
Thankfully, Gray is now doing much better and managing his condition amidst the pressures of his career. Mayberry shared with “The Real:”
“He doesn’t take the medicine anymore; he does holistic things. And he also has an assistant. The assistant helps him get through his day, along with the staff of ‘Empire.’ They help him with his lines or whatever he needs help with.”
In related news, Fox Entertainment announced two weeks ago that the forthcoming sixth season of “Empire” will be the last, bringing an end to the hip-hop drama series where Gray played Hakeem Lyon, the talented and unruly son of hip-hop mogul Lucious Lyon, portrayed by Terrence Howard and Cookie Lyon, played by Taraji P. Henson.
