Congrats, you beautiful-crazy KIDS!
Misty Copeland married her boyfriend of ten years, Olu Evans, on Sunday. Which is crazy- Misty’s been dating the same dude since she was 23? And trying to work up the ballerina ladder? Respect.
ICYDK, Copeland is the first African-American female principal dancer for the American Ballet Theatre, and she announced her engagement to Evans, an attorney in the September 2015 issue of Essence. Weirdly enough- Olu is Taye Diggs‘ cousin. How’s that for a sexy pair?
Misty says she is excited for her summer wedding, but glad she’s got help:
“It’s coming along! It’s happening this summer so it’s very soon,” Copeland said. “I’m super busy so I have amazing people taking care of a lot of stuff.”
“I think I’m a pretty simple girl, so I like for there to be no drama. I just want to enjoy the day, and not have it be about the preparation,” she said.
We are excited for your drama-free nuptials, girl. Hope it was everything you wanted it to be!
