Gayle King’s daughter tied the knot at Oprah’s house

American TV personality Gayle King and Oprah Winfrey are the best of friends.  It is thus no surprise that King’s daughter Kirby would tie the knot at Oprah’s Santa Barbara home.

Kirby Bumpus, who is Oprah’s goddaughter, married Virgil Miller in a small socially-distanced ceremony back in December 2020 after postponing their nuptials due to the pandemic.

King took to Instagram to make the announcement, writing “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. Strict covid rules I couldn’t even hug her on her wedding day that was haaaaard!

“Not the wedding we planned in 2020 but my favorite son @willgb3 performed the ceremony… the day was gorgeous and so was kirby! I call that perfection.. swipe left for stunning pixs from @JoePug… thank you joe! Ps anybody have tips on being a good mother-in-law ?? Im all ears and taking notes!”

The entire wedding process had to be tailored due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Dress fittings were held via Zoom and had her mom, along with Oprah and her best friend offered feedback virtually. On the big day, mom Gayle couldn’t even help her daughter get ready.

Her brother Will was not the original officiant choice, but he was the best option because h already had an officiant’s license.

“Nobody knows Kirby the way her brother does, so for him to do the ceremony felt meant to be,” Gayle told Oprah Magazine. “My son, Will, says, ‘We call ourselves a tripod, and that day with Virgil, we became a perfect square,'” Gayle says. “Kirby really is so happy, and nothing beats when your children are happy.”
