Ryan asked her why she doesn’t like weddings, to which she said: ‘I don’t like weddings, like one I’m… we’ll have a wedding… I’ve not like weddings since before there was a partner involved. It’s too much… too many things… like my mother in law… shout out to Sherry… she’s going to want a wedding.’

‘And I don’t like them because my mom was a wedding singer growing up. I’ve been at a lot of weddings uninvited and just like been the weird kid eating cake at a stranger’s wedding. And now I don’t like them,’ the actress said.

Soon after, Brandon took to his Instagram to share photos from their wedding day.

‘Surprise! I can finally call her my wife publicly! Since @gabby3shabby finally spilled the beans today on Live with Kelly and Ryan – we’ve been married since March ’21!’ Brandon wrote on his Instagram page.

‘Relieved we can finally tell the world. So thankful to have found my forever person, my partner-in-crime, and the love of my life,’ he said.

‘Every day is the best day with you. Nobody I would rather raise cats with and be in bed by a smooth 8pm with. Love you forever.’
