Kirby Bumpus & Virgil Miller: Dating, Engaged, Wedding
Well, now we all know that Kirby Bumpus is a married woman. Turns out, she and her beau Virgil Miller secretly married in December 2020.
Apparently, it was Kirby’s “Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People of 2019” mother who gave away the news on Instagram. Sharing a couple of beautiful wedding shots of Kirby and her groom, Gayle wrote— “FINALLY fav daughter @kirbybump gave me permission to share the news she’s a married lady.. she & Virgil Miller tied the knot in super small service(6 people) @oprah house in December”.
The proud mom and editor-at-large for O, The Oprah Magazine wanted so bad to share the news since the conclusion of Christmas break. But, Kirby “would not allow” her. Gayle shared— “She’s so picky. She said she wanted to tell her friends first before I told the audience of CBS This Morning.”
Kirby and Virgil, happily engaged back on Feb. 11, 2019, got married to only four guests witnessing their exchange, due to of course the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
So, the attendees on the day were Kirby’s mom, her brother with a license of marriage officiant, Oprah, and her longtime partner Stedman Graham.
Besides the low guest count, every possible precaution was taken to make the wedding Covid-safe many of which were “tough” for Gayle. Especially the part that Gayle and her son Will were not allowed in the house because Oprah was very strict with COVID.
Giving away as much account on the wedding day, Gayle said— “…I didn’t get a chance to zip up her dress or help her in it, but I knew Oprah covered all that, so I knew she was in good hands. But it’s tough to see your daughter get married and you can’t hug. That was very difficult”.
Anyway, Kirby who picked her wedding dress via Zoom just three days before the wedding had initially planned a big wedding. And she and Virgil decided to go no with whatever option was possible at the time because they did not want to wait until 2021.
Be that as it may, there’s still hope for fans wanting to witness something big. In an episode of CBS This Morning, co-host Gayle spilled, the new couple had plans to have a larger soiree in the future. Her exact words were— “we’ll have a big shebang sometime down the road”
