Actress and Reality TV star Garcelle Beauvais has welcomed a daughter-in-law into the family after her son got married over the weekend.

Oliver Saunders married his girlfriend Sam In Las Vegas over the weekend, and his super proud mom took to Instagram to share photos of the happy couple posing outside the famed A Little White Wedding Chapel Drive-Thru Window.

On Sunday, Beauvais posted several photos of her son and bride with the message “Congratulations Oliver and Sam” and “Welcome to the family @samoli_saunders.”

Beauvais included an adorable close-up pic of the young couple followed by one of the two at the drive-thru window of the wedding chapel. There was another sweet photo of the couple with the extended family.

It’s unclear if the blushing bride and groom had planned their nuptials before the COVID-19 pandemic caused many weddings to be postponed or canceled, but the news of their marriage is welcome none the less.

And the news prompted a wave of congratulatory messages under Beauvais’s Instagram post.

Congratulatory comments flooded in for the happy couple

Actress Ali Landry wrote in the comments, “Oliver, I am so happy for you and your family! Sending love your way!!!!”

Whereas, Essence Atkins wrote, “Congratulations to Oliver and Sam! May God Bless Your Union and Family!” And Henry Simmons and Sherrie Shepherd wrote “CONGRATULATIONS!!!” and “Congrats!!” respectively.

Oliver Saunders is Beauvais’ son from her marriage to producer Daniel Saunders. She also had two twins, Jax and Jaid, 12, with her second husband, Mike Nilon. The pair split up in 2010.

Garcelle Beauvais also became a grandma this year

And three months ago, she became a grandma for the first time, with the birth of Oliver Junior. She again posted a selection of pics to Instagram of baby Oliver with his new family and wrote: Introducing my grandson #oliverjunior its Oliver’s birthday, but I received an amazing gift.”

She added, “so full of love, what should my grandma name be???”

Beauvais was recently unveiled as the newest addition to the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

The appearance of the 53-year-old Haitian-American was hailed as she adds much-needed diversity to the show.

Beauvais started her career as a fashion model but is best known for her role as Francesca’ Fancy’ Munro on The Jaime Foxx Show, which lasted from 1996 to 2001.
