This morning, Emmy award winner, Lena Waithe shared that she has been secretly married to her longtime love, Alana Mayo!

The news was shared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show when Waithe sat down with guest host, John Legend.

Waithe shared the reason why they wanted to keep their wedding private, noting “We didn’t make any announcements or a big…We went to San Francisco. We went to the courthouse. Got married right in front of [late gay rights activist and politician] Harvey Milk’s bust. [It was] her idea, as all good things are. And she was just driving and she saw the courthouse and she said, ‘We should get married there.’ And I said, ‘Cool, I’m down.”


Congratulations Lena Waithe and Alana Mayo!
