American comedian and television host Niecy Nash gushed about finding peace as she shared a heartwarming selfie with her wife Jessica Betts in a recent sweet Instagram post.

Just a few months after their surprise marriage, American television star Niecy Nash and singer Jessica Betts continue to ride the wave of their blissful union.

As another show of their love, Nash took to her Instagram feed a few days ago to post a wholesome photo of her and her heartthrob having a sweet time together.

It was a heartwarming black and white selfie that showed the love birds impeccably dressed as they were having a good laugh. The comedian looked chic in a black face cap turned to the back and her luscious dark wavy hair falling to her shoulder.

Betts, on the other hand, had on a black beanie, but the rest of her outfit was hidden outside the picture frame. She had her other hand wrapped around the star in a sweet side hug, and the pair looked adorable as they laughed. Nash captioned:

"Find your peace….and lean in❤️."


In a surprising turn of events in August, the television host announced that she and Betts had tied the knot in a secret outdoor wedding ceremony. She posted lovely photos from the blissful day, and fans immediately sent out their love and support.

For the day, Nash was dressed in a stunning white sleeveless mermaid-style gown while Betts wore a classy white suit ensemble. The pair did not reveal additional details about the wedding, but the singer took to her Instagram to share the news with her followers.

She added that their union had absolutely nothing to do with gender and everything to do with Betts' soul.



Prior to the news of the union, both Betts and Nash kept their relationship from the public. The couple first met in 2015 through social media while Nash was still married to her ex-husband Jay Tucker. However, they were only friends at the time.

Their love for one another grew stronger when Betts featured in Nash's TV series "Claws" in 2018. The singer revealed that she knew she felt something different the moment they met. 


Nash added that she always felt connected to her from the start of their friendship. After the comedian filed for divorce from Tucker last year, she revealed that she and Betts' relationship changed as they began to see each other in a new way they never had before.

One year later and their love seems to only wax on stronger. Even though it is generally believed that Nash's marriage to Betts is the first time she came out as part of the LGBTQ community, the 50-year-old has contrary opinions. 


In a candid interview, Nash explained that her marriage was not a coming out of anywhere, but rather a going into herself and being honest about who she loved. She added that their union had absolutely nothing to do with gender and everything to do with Betts' soul.

She also gushed that Betts was the most beautiful soul she had ever met. Surely, it is apt to say that the TV star, who once joked about being married several times, has finally found a home in the arms of the loving rapper.
