‘Empire’ Star Grace Gealey Confirms Marriage
Empire star Grace Gealey has confirmed reports she secretly wed her co-star Trai Byers last week.
Editors at TMZ reported that the couple wed on Thursday at a mansion on Grand Cayman Island in the Caribbean, in a private ceremony and reception.
On Sunday, Gealey took to Instagram to share her first snap as a newlywed, snuggling close to her new husband Byers.
“We’re married!,” Grace wrote. “God is so good. To all who have extended congrats and well wishes, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Love, Mr. & Mrs. Byers.”
According to TMZ, just a handful of guests attended, limited to close friends and family, and none of the pair’s Empire co-stars, including Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson, were reportedly invited.
However, there didn’t seem to be any bad blood with her fellow actors, as Gealey received well wishes from Gabourey Sidibe following the announcement, to which the new Mrs. Byers responded, “Thank you my love!!”
Gealey and Byers reportedly began dating early last year, and became engaged in July.
