‘Insecure’ Actor Jay Ellis & Model/Actress Nina Senicar Are Married!

‘Insecure’ Actor Jay Ellis & Model/Actress Nina Senicar Host Wedding Of Their Dreams In Italy

Jay Ellis may be famously known for playing Issa Rae‘s love interest on ‘Insecure,’ but in real life, he’s the husband of Serbian model & actress Nina Senicar.

The Top Gun: Maverick actor and his longtime partner tied the knot in Tuscany on July 9, surrounded by all their family and friends. Recalling some of his favorite memories from the wedding, Jay Ellis said,

“There was a moment when I was standing there in front of everyone waiting for the giant wrought iron gates to open and to see Nina but the moment kept going and going.”

He continued,

“So I yelled out ‘Baby, you coming?’ There was another beat or two after where Nina didn’t answer, so I turned to the crowd and said ‘I guess that’s a no, there’s a space up here if anybody wants to get married today.’ And in perfect timing as everyone laughed Nina yelled out, ‘I’m coming baby!’ Everyone laughed at us and then the gate opened and I was in awe when I saw Nina in her dress for the first time.”

In January 2019, five years after first meeting Nina Senicar, Jay Ellis popped the question on Bali’s Dreamland Beach. The couple welcomed their baby girl in August of the same year.

While they tend to keep a low profile, Ellis defended their interracial relationship during an interview in 2017, saying,

“I am in a relationship. I’m in a very happy relationship and that’s where I leave it. I don’t really worry about anything else and that’s it. I think for me, we give so much of ourselves in what we do no matter what side of the industry we’re on so for me…a relationship for me is probably the most important thing that I think two people can have.”

It was always the plan for the two to wed in Italy, where they had their first date. Although their plans were postponed twice because of the COVID-19 pandemic and a family loss, the third time truly is the charm—and the couple was finally able to host the wedding of their dreams.

Congratulations to the newlyweds!
