They’re hitched! Empire co-stars Grace Gealy and Trai Byers who play (Anika Calhoun aka Boo Boo Kitty to real fans of the show and Andre Lyons respectively) have tied the knot. The gorgeous couple have been engaged since last year and now they’ve made their union official. The screen stars became husband and wife in an intimate affair on the breathtaking island of Grand Cayman.
This was a bit of a homecoming for Grace who is a native Caymanian. According to PEOPLE.com, the pair wed on Thursday, April 14 at a beach-side ceremony surrounded by 50-plus friends and family. While none of the couple’s Empire co-stars were in attendance, we’re pretty sure they all wish the newlyweds well. FYI: Triple B is all for weekday nuptials!
When questioned by the FABLife during their courting days about how they balance their romance in the workplace, Grace maturely responded, “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.” And her better half Trai seems quite smitten with his wife as evidenced by the actor’s Instagram page earlier today.
Random Fun Fact: Grace was raised by a set of deaf parents. The actress learned sign language before she could even talk!
Please join Triple B in congratulating Grace + Trai and wishing them a happy and healthy marriage!
