“We’s Married Now”: Kim Coles And Reggie McKiver Tie The Knot

July 9, 2015  |  

On June 17, Kim Coles, 53, and Reggie McKiver, 41, tied the knot during an intimate wedding ceremony in the Dominican Republic. Shortly after the ceremony, the “Living Single” actress excitedly announced the news on Facebook:

On Wednesday 6/17/2015, two best friends got married! We will have official pictures soon, but take this as our own announcement that “We’s Married Now!” We would like to send our love and thanks to those in attendance and REMIND you to keep everything hush-hush until we say so! Please respect our privacy, photos & announcements until further notice! ‪#‎happykimandreggie‬

The couple met after Mckiver was assigned as Coles’ security escort at a natural hair expo.

“[My heart] was open just enough for Reggie to come through, and I’m so glad he did,” the newlywed told People. “I’m 53, and Reggie is 41 but I’m not a cougar. I can’t run that fast. I’m a meerkat or a prairie dog. It’s about the right energy. It wasn’t like I was trolling for younger men. It’s about energy. We’re ageless. Just two people on the same plane.”

The couple engaged in a long distance relationship before Mckiver finally asked for his love’s hand in marriage during a dinner outing at The Olive Garden. Interestingly, he proposed without a ring. He later presented his new fiancée with mother’s old engagement ring.

“I didn’t have a stitch of makeup on!” she reflected.

She later announced the upcoming nuptials during a comedy gig.

“Me with my big mouth announced I was getting married! People asked where and I was like, you cant come, it’s a private wedding. We had to move the wedding from one beach to a whole other beach, but all the people from the tour showed up — 45 people in their bathing suits and towels — but they were very respectful.”

Back in March, Coles announced her engagement on Facebook. Congrats to this beauty and her new husband!

    Good for them but I have noticed this trend among older Black women marrying Black men who makes a lot less money than them ( I know money is not everything and I hold the same standard for women as well ). I hope we won’t hear in 2 years time that her husband wants a divorce a spousal support.

    • Diane

      That’s because after a certain age you take what you can get!! especially for women of color(blk). Plus you have to factor in your COMPETITION. All the good-looking or fairly handsome brothers with great or good financial status, like women who are going to make them LOOK good! She got to have a banging BODY, ok looking but can draw the attention of other men. Men measure each other by the money they make and what type of women he got. If she’s attractive to other men he did well. And it’s not ALWAYS based on how pretty or SMART his women is. All he need is the PASS of APPROVAL.

        That sounds like a boy’s mind, not a man. An immature boy. Sounds like a lot of black men. “Yeah, look at my girl…” Who cares. Wonder if Bill Gates had the same mindset when he picked a wife. Haha. Some black men need to grow up. Nonetheless. Congrats Kim!

        Agreed.

    • CaribbeanGlow

      I hear you, but the men in her pay grade and industry aint checking for black women.

    • laza

      i personally think its due to the fact that the older a woman gets, her picks become slim. I would not say she settled because love is love, but…

  • Vdub2014
