The newest season of The Masked Singer welcomes the Emmy-nominated comedian/actress/all-around queen Niecy Nash as guest host, temporarily taking over hosting duties while Nick Cannon recovers from COVID-19. Yes, of course, we’re all desperate to know more about the celebrities who decided that season 5 of The Masked Singer is my time to shine, but I bet you’re also curious to learn more about Ms. Nash’s love life! Particularly her newlywed status. So let’s get acquainted.
Niecy and her wife, Jessica Betts, unexpectedly dropped their wedding pics on the ’gram last August, and they’ve been delivering holy matrimony goals ever since. So who exactly is Niecy’s other half? Allow us to introduce you, but first, LOOK AT THIS ROMANCE:
Jessica is a musician
Originally from the south side of Chicago, 41-year old Jessica writes and sings music. According to her website, she works across several genres, including R&B, soul, and rock. When she was just 18 years old, she collaborated with the iconic boy group Boyz II Men, and since then, her music has been featured on soundtracks for huge movies like Big Momma’s House and Simply Irresistible. For her latest romantic ballad “Catch Me,” Jessica featured her new wife in the official music video—wearing a wedding gown, aww.
Niecy and Jessica’s wedding basically ~broke the internet~
Before dropping the news on Instagram, the couple had given their fans no hints that they were even together. So it was definitely noteworthy…especially considering that Niecy had finalized her divorce only in March 2020.
According to People, their celebration was an intimate gathering at home with only close family and friends. But don’t get it twisted: Announcing her marriage was *not* “coming out” for Niecy, who’s been married twice before. During a Good Morning America appearance last October, she said, “I was asked, ‘Is this your official coming out?’ and I was like, ‘Coming out from where?’ I never lived a sexually repressed life, I just love who I love when I love them.” Into it.
Jessica and Niecy were friends before things turned romantic
The couple first connected over social media in 2015 before finally meeting in person on the set of Niecy’s TNT series Claws. Jessica was guest-starring as—get this—a wedding singer. During a recent appearance on The Ellen Show, Niecy said they shifted from friends to ~more than friends~ after they “went to go eat crabs” together. Who knew shellfish was the secret to love?! Niecy often now refers to Jessica as her “hersband,” which is both cute and probably trademark-worthy.
Jessica was also on a musical reality show
Jessica was crowned the winner of the 2005 competition series Road to Stardom, where she had judges like Missy Elliot and Madonna lauding her talent. So0o0o0o does this mean she’s qualified to be one of The Masked Singer’s surprise contestants?! Because that’s a reaction from Niecy the world deserves to see!
