Ladies, I know there is a lot of internal and external pressure to be married and have kids, all before your 30th birthday. But that’s not everybody’s story. And frankly, there is plenty of life and love after 30 years old. If you don’t believe me, you need look no further than Shirley Strawberry.

Strawberry, the relationship expert and co-host on Steve Harvey’s popular morning show is well past 30, and married Ernesto Williams, 50, on Friday.

The couple got engaged last summer when Ernesto proposed to Shirley live on the radio.

In case you couldn’t really tell from the video, Ernesto is a very nice looking man. He and Shirley just so happened to get married on his birthday, January 10; and before they tied the knot, Shirley posted this picture in tribute to him, where we can fully see what he’s got going on.

Happy Birthday honey! I can't wait to marry you tonight! @nestosbuckhead 😘😍💍👰🎩❤️🍓

Williams is an entrepreneur, whose businesses have been featured in The New York Times and other publications. Williams has been a barber for over 20 years and has managed to create some pretty lucrative business platforms as a result, including “The 24 Hour Barber Shop.”

Shirley did very well for herself.

So now that we know what Shirley’s working with, check out the pictures and videos from the wedding.

Getting beat! #BerryMarried #AcedFaces @acedfaces ❤️🍓

Shirley wasn’t the only one who showed up to the venue in style. Ernesto showed his wedding day ride to his Instagram followers.

Steve and Shirley are more than just coworkers. She entrusted Harvey with the responsibility of walking her down the aisle. That’s a pretty big deal.

Ernesto was also thrilled to have his daughter and granddaughter in the wedding.

My maid of honor!!! #BerryMarried #LegendaryEvents #EstateAtlanta ❤️🍓

Sheridyn, Shirley’s daughter, was her maid of honor.

Instead of keeping the kiss to a minimal peck, these two–or Ernesto–went all out. #yolo

Watch that hand!

The couple were married by Williams’ mentor for the past seven years.

Everyone loves to see a couple commit themselves to one another in an beautiful ceremony. But for the guests, the most memorable part of any wedding is the reception. And I’m sure with Kem providing the score for your first dance, it’ll likely be a reception people won’t soon forget.

First dance!!! Serenaded by the talented @musicbykem!!! #BerryMarried ❤️🍓

Of course there was cake.

Can’t think of a more appropriate song for a cake cutting than Tupac and Jodeci’s “How Do You Want It?”

Good night!!! More pics to come later! #BerryMarried ❤️🍓

This video is really dark but the fact that someone told him not to get her pregnant was just too delicious not to include.

We’re very happy for Shirley and her new husband, Ernesto! Congratulations to this new couple!

    So Happy For Them,,, Beautiful Wedding

  • Interesting…

    The pictures are beautiful…very beautiful wedding. Apparently, he used to date Eboni Steele from the Rickey Smiley morning show and the word is that he’s not the man of great character that he appears to be. I don’t know him, so…

    • DeepThinker

      I heard that too. Welp he certainly has a type. I hope it works for them.

  • T.Kay

    It is so weird seeing the faces and the people in action with their voices that you hear everyday on the radio lol CONGRATS to her! Happy for her!

  • Faith

    Congratulations. I wish them the very best. I really, really hope it works out for the two. He is FIIIINNNNEEE.

  • Just clarifying

    I’m very happy for her, but the author is incenuating that this is her first marriage. It’s not. She was married to Darryl Strawberry, ex-MLB player. But he dogged her out so I’m hoping that this husband treats her right.

    • Shamika.

      I never knew that they were married!

    • JB#3

      She was never married to Darryl Strawberry, I believe she was married to his brother. All of his ex-wives are white

      • @@@@@

        Darryl Strawberry’s first wife was black. His 2nd wife is white.

      • NaijaQueen

        wait, so is the girl from love and hip hop, diamond, he niece?

    • Laura

      She was married to his brother, not Darryl

    Awwwww! But why was he still on the phone after he entered the room? Was it so everything was recorded?

    • Melissa

      So people could hear over the radio, remember it was live

      • alone_in_a_crowded_room
