These Empire Co-Stars Just Got Married in an Island Wedding
Finally, a happy ending for someone on Empire! Cast members of the hit Fox drama Grace Gealey, who plays Anika Calhoun (aka Boo Boo Kitty) and Trai Byers, who plays Andre Lyon, reportedly tied the knot Thursday, April 14, in the Cayman Islands.
Gealey confirmed the wedding news on her Instagram with a sweet picture of the couple in New York City. In the caption she wrote, "We're married! 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 E! News they welcomed a small number of guests, including some Empire cast members. Steak and lobster was served and guests danced to hip-hop, reggae, and disco at the reception.
The pair, who have both been part of the show since it debuted in January 2015, reportedly met on the set of the series and Gealey announced the engagement last October, during an appearance on The FAB Life. Gealey said of dating a co-worker at the time, "I think that if you do get involved at your workplace you have to know that this is something that you want to be invested in, and this is just not just something that is frivolous and fleeting."
Here's to their enduring love. Congrats to the happy couple!
