They connected over their shared interests until a random person interrupted them before they could exchange contacts. But as fate would have it, they would meet a month later when the same friends threw another party. They began dating a week after the second party.

After five years of dating, they moved into a new apartment in D.C. and hosted their families at Christmas. It was during the Christmas gathering that Richardson proposed to Phillip.

Two years after their engagement, Phillip and Richardson married on May 26, 2018. Their wedding took place in the historic Anderson House in Washington, D.C. Unexpected rain showers caused the ceremony to move to the house’s Cannon Room, but it went on beautifully without a hitch.

Phillip told The Cut in a March 22, 2021 interview that she and Richardson are expecting their first child together. Their baby girl is due in summer 2021.
