Country Singer Jimmie Allen has officially tied the knot. The singer married his fiancée Alexis Gale after postponing their initial wedding date due to COVID-19. The couple had their first child together, Naomi Bettie, last year, and got married in a private ceremony.

They invited an impressive roster of guests. Amongst those who attended were Tyler Rich and his wife Sabina Gadecki, Chuck Wicks and his wife Kasi, and Darius Rucker. Sabina Galdeki shared some pics to her Instagram story, showing off a floral arrangement and lovely outdoor seating.

Jimmie Allen’s New Wife, Alexis Gale, is A Nurse

Jimmie Allen met nurse Alexis Gale through family members. The two also grew up in the same hometown of Milton, Deleware.

“With Alexis being from my hometown, it is like always having a piece of home with me. We had an immediate connection. It was like we’d always known each other,” he told PEOPLE in July 2017.

“Her smile melts me, her pure heart challenges me to love better, the way she motivates and supports me is unlike anything I’ve ever seen, the way she loves me and my son is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced,” He finished. Jimmie Allen is the father of a 7-year old from a previous relationship.

He proposed to Alexis at Disney world. In her engagement announcement on social media, Gale had a touching message for her now-husband.

“Does this really mean I get to grow old with you?! Yesterday, I said yes to forever. I am beyond words and lucky to be able to call this incredible man my fiancé,” she wrote.

Jimmie Allen has had a big couple of weeks scheduled. He’s also slated to perform the national anthem at the Indianapolis 500. He also made history at the ACMAs last month, becoming the first black artist to win the “New Male Artist of the Year” award.

Allen’s first official single, Best Shot became the second most added song to country playlists the week of its release. He released his debut album, Mercury Lane, in 2018. By November 2018, Best Shot made number one on the Billboard Country Airplay chart. Allen released an EP, Bettie James, in July of 2020. Now, the singer is making big moves both personally and professionally.

COVID-19 may have caused delays to their wedding, but thankfully for the couple, they finally found the time to get married.
