Talented actress Lupita Nyong'o recently took to her Instagram page to share a series of pictures from her younger brother Junior Nyong'o's colorful wedding ceremony which she watched virtually.
The ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic has thrown major cities worldwide into a compulsory lockdown as authorities struggle to stop the spread of the highly contagious virus.
Sadly, the situation has left many people stranded or unable to make trips for special celebrations. And this was the situation for Lupita Nyong'o as the travel restrictions prevented her from attending her little brother's wedding ceremony.
Thankfully for the "Us" star, she watched the ceremony virtually on her laptop as her brother tied the knot with his sweetheart Wanja Wohoro. Lupita later shared a picture of her MacBook set up for her to view the nuptials.
In another photo shared by the 37-year-old actress, Junior can be seen locked in a warm embrace with his beautiful bride. The groom wore a white outfit paired with a golden vest, while his bride, Wohoro, was dressed in a gorgeous white sleeveless gown. While sharing the pictures, Lupita wrote:
"...Sharing a moment of joy in my family's life when my sweet, gentle, loving baby brother @juniornyongo made his declaration of love to his new bride..."
Junior also shared the same pictures from the wedding on his Instagram page while penning down a sweet tribute to his bride. "Star Wars" actor John Boyega took to the comments section to congratulate him.
Lupita was romantically linked with award-winning singer Janelle Monae after the pair were spotted cozying up at the MET Gala
Meanwhile, it has been a season of celebrations for the "12 Years a Slave" actress who celebrated another milestone during the week. Lupita got her first Emmy Award nomination for her work on "Serengeti."
Following the announcement, the beautiful actress took to her Instagram to express her happiness at the nomination while sharing an image of a lioness. She wrote:
"Weeeeeeee, I am an Emmy nomineeeeeee. For the narration of #Serengeti!!"
Since her breakthrough role as Patsey in the 2013 box office hit "12 Years a Slave," Lupita has quickly risen to become a leading figure in Hollywood.
Despite the media attention, not much is known about the iconic actress outside her career and family life. She is known to be notoriously private about her romantic life.
In 2019, Lupita was romantically linked with award-winning singer Janelle Monae after the pair were spotted cozying up at the MET Gala. However, neither of them has come out to deny or confirm the dating rumors.
Lupita's romantic life and sexuality may very well be a mystery to fans. Still, her track record of outstanding performances is bold enough for everyone to see and it's worth focusing on.
