Gloria Govan & Derek Fisher Tie The Knot!

Congrats are in order for retired NBA star Derek Fisher and ex-reality star Gloria Govan. 

They are officially married! Their ceremony was held Saturday (July 17th) at Cielo Farms in Malibu, California, according to PEOPLE. Gloria Govan’s brother served as the officiant.

Derek Fisher proposed to Gloria Govan in 2018 and while they first planned to say their “I dos” last April, the newlyweds were forced to postpone their wedding due to COVID-19.

Govan said,

“We got engaged in 2018, and we eagerly started planning the wedding, but, unfortunately, like many, we had to cancel our big day.”

The former Basketball Wives star added,

“There were times we thought we should have a Zoom wedding instead of waiting but quickly realized our families being a part of the big day was important and our kids, who are just as excited as we are.”

She continued and said,

“For Derek and me, our wedding has been about unity and a blending of families. After the pandemic, we realized how important family really is. We could have easily eloped or filled out the paperwork and gotten it over with. But sharing this moment and event with those closest to us took priority over taking the easy route. We kept our guest list limited to those closest to us.”

She went on to point out that both she and the Los Angeles Sparks coach have been married before. Govan was married to former Los Angeles Lakers star Matt Barnes from 2013 to 2016. Derek Fisher and Candace Fisher were married from 2005-2016.
Govan, who donned a body-hugging gown by Monique Lhuillier for the past weekend’s ceremony, went on to say,

“For both of us, this is our second marriage. The most exciting part about this time around is all the growth we bring to the relationship. The trials and tribulations we’ve experienced have played a huge part in who we are in our relationship today. From the start, we’ve been very honest about our expectations from our friendship to marriage.”

She concluded,

“After almost two years of waiting here, we are — and we couldn’t be happier.”

The new Mr. and Mrs. Fisher will celebrate via a honeymoon in Thailand this October.

Congrats to Derek Fisher and Gloria Govan!
