Gospel Legend CeCe Winans Is All Smiles Posing Next to Pastor Husband Alvin Love II in Photo
CeCe Winans is enjoying her role as grandmother to all the little babies of her new church.
The gospel singer stood outdoors wearing a loose white blouse and grey pants with matching sneakers. In her arms, she held up a happy tot wearing a pink onesie. The post is found below.
CeCe has basically adopted all her church kids
Next to her was her husband Alvin Love II, who leaned over to rest his head on his wife's shoulder. One hand rested on his thigh while the other was wrapped around Winans' other shoulder.
The couple looked full of life and seemed to be beaming although the child is not actually theirs. In the caption, Winans explained what was going on.
"We Love being Pastor Grandma and Grandpa to our Nashville Life Church next generation!!"
Her congregation opened because of her son
Winans and her husband have two kids of their own: Alvin Love III and Ashley Love, but based on a comment reply from Winans, they have no grandchildren as yet.
Winans certainly has a lot of other kids to occupy her time through her 250-member congregation in Nashville. The singer drastically changed her life when she chose to be a pastor nine years ago.
That's when her young son at the time asked her to host him and his friends' Bible study. Winans had always been religious, but until then she didn't realize that being a pastor was her calling.
It came after a highly successful music career
Prior to the switch, Winans was busy collecting 10 Grammys, 20 Doves and three NAACP Image Awards thanks to her five million album sales. Her music career halted, but only for a while.
In 2017, Winans' son convinced her to release a new album nearly a decade into her pastor life. Alvin Love III wrote the majority of lyrics for the album "Let Them Fall in Love."
She hasn't completely ended her gospel run
In an interview with Southern Living, Winans revealed that she always wanted to make another record, but had to wait for the right time. The music doesn't resemble her past work but is meant to connect with both her old and new listeners.
Though it was Winans' first solo album in years, she did release a CD with her brother BeBe, another gospel artist who's been in the game for a long time.
The music gene is strong in her family
The siblings are just two from a family of nine musical children. Winans and her brother inherited their love of music from mom Dolores, who also sings. Last December, Winans showed how close they are.
She shared the sweetest picture of her and her mom laughing in a kitchen as they rested their heads together. "Having a great time with the Best mom in the world!!" Winans wrote.
She added: "I Love to see and hear her laugh!!" The singer definitely understands the value of having good people, both in tiny packages and those who are older, in her life.
