Danielle Brooks Radiates Joy in Wedding Announcement
Cheers are in order for Danielle Brooks and Dennis Gelin! On Jan. 13, Danielle announced they were married by sharing photos from their gorgeous wedding and her three custom wedding dresses. "I'z married now! 💍," Danielle captioned a post thanking the designers, stylists, and planners involved in making her dream wedding a reality. "GORGEOUS GIRL ❤️❤️❤️," fellow Orange Is the New Black star Kimiko Glenn commented on the post.
On her Instagram Stories, Danielle shared a behind-the-scenes sneak peek at what it was like to prepare for the wedding and highlighted a few standout moments from the big day, featuring photos by photographer Kareem Virgo. "This moment meant so much to me," she captioned a video of her father walking her down the aisle. "My father was suffering for years from hip pain and had to [lose] a significant amount of weight before they would allow him to have surgery. He lost over 60lbs naturally not only for his health but for this moment as well! I love you daddy! Forever your baby girl! . . . Oh — and we did an epic daddy-daughter dance!"
Danielle and Dennis announced their engagement in January 2020 following a romantic New Year's Eve proposal. Shortly after, on Nov. 16, 2021, the couple welcomed their first child together, a daughter named Freeya. Congratulations to the happy couple!
