Morton is married to Gerald Mwangi, a businessman originally from Kenya. The pair decided to take their relationship to the next level by tying the knot on July 22, 2017.
The lovebirds reportedly met at a lounge in Atlanta. Morton revealed that figuring out where to live was not easy:
“He and his siblings came to the States for college. So he’s been in the States right before his 18th birthday, and he’s like, ‘No, I never want to leave Atlanta.’ That’s where all my family is, and he has all his friends here, and we just have a really great life in Atlanta. That’s where we want to raise our kids, and this is home for us.”
The couple had garden ceremony at the Fairmont Kenya Safari Club in Nanyuki. Talking about Mwangi, Morton gushed, “He is amazing. He is definitely Godsend. And they say you got to kiss a couple of frogs before you get your Prince Charming, and that is definitely what he is.”
She added, “I think about where I was five years ago even, and I think about where I am now, and all I can say is, ‘God, he is so good, and he is so merciful, and he is so understanding, and he is so patient and forgiving.’ And it’s nothing but his work that brought us together.”
