Surprise, surprise! Raven-Symoné married Miranda Pearman-Maday in a secret wedding, and the photos are beautiful. The That’s So Raven alum announced the news on Instagram on Thursday, June 18, with three photos from her and her wife’s intimate nuptials.
“I got married to a woman who understands me from trigger to joy, from breakfast to midnight snack, from stage to home. I love you Mrs. Pearman-Maday! Let’s tear this world a new asshole!!! I’s married NOW,” the former Disney Channel star captioned a picture of her and Miranda smiling in the yard of a house. For the wedding, Miranda wore a white jumpsuit, while Raven dressed in black with long, rainbow-colored braids.
The photo received thousands of comments from friends and celebrities, such as Jojo and Yvette Nicole Brown. “PUMPKIN!!! Congrats!!!!!❤,” Yvette commented, while Jojo wrote: “😍🌹😍🌹✨🍀.”
Minutes before she posted the wedding photo of her and Miranda, Raven teased that she had big news to tell her fans. “So something happened this week, that has changed my life FOR THE BETTER!” she captioned a photo of a bubbly drink in a wine glass.
In another post, the former View host also thanked her love ones who made her wedding possible. The Cheetah Girls star also thanked those who couldn’t attend the ceremony for understanding that she wanted to keep the nuptials to a small circle of friends and family. “Thank you to all those who helped and for those who understand why it was small during this time.” she wrote.
In a 2019 interview with Variety, Raven opened up about her decision to come out as queer. “While it was a selfish thing for me to keep my secret to myself for as long as I did, I am very happy that I’m out, if only to help someone else feel comfortable,” she said at the time. “It is about that one person who you’ll never see or meet who watches the show and feels that confidence to just say, ‘Hey, guess what? I’m gay. And if you can’t accept me, it’s okay, because I see Raven pushing through.’ That feels good. It’s a hard journey, though. It’s difficult.”
