“🎂❤️🥰I am the luckiest woman in the world. Not because I need a man, but because he found me and knew that I wanted to find happiness and grace, all at the same time. I am stunned that this is my husband. My life and my everything. ❤️every woman should feel like this everyday 💖🙏.”

And on March 14, 2023, she announced they were expecting their first child together. “We are blessed and excited! 🙏🤍👶🍼,” she wrote, tagging her husband in the post.

Shortly after, she celebrated the wedding anniversary and shared the real date they got married: “April 3, 2023 ❤️ 1 year today ❤️ Happy Anniversary ☺️”
