This Is How Raven-Symoné and Miranda Pearman-Maday Feel About Married Life
The couple recently reflected on their early days as spouses—and also debated who initiated their first kiss.
While marriage can lead to some major shifts in a couple's relationship, Raven-Symoné and wife Miranda Pearman-Maday are taking it all in stride. The pair sat down with Entertainment Tonight and shared how they felt ready for their life together (and the news to break!) ahead of tying the knot. "We are not ignorant to the fact that when something so big comes out—especially for me, who has been private with their life and their dating life for so long—we were prepared," Symoné said.
The entertainer added that the love and support they received from fans, friends, and family alike made tying the knot even more special. "We weren't prepared for how fast it took off and how many people showed love. We were not expecting it to be as big as it was for the quarantine life," Symoné said. "We were pleasantly surprised, we were grateful and thankful for all the love that came our way and still comes our way and, you know, it's like we're adults. We both have kind of a child complex so when this happens it's like, 'Oh, that's right, we're married.' Like, I still get a kick out of it."
In addition to navigating their busy schedules in the midst of COVID-19 restrictions and getting settled in their new home, Pearman-Maday explained she has had to adjust to life in the spotlight—something made easier by the fact that she has her wife's support. "Raven has obviously been really helpful in all of that for me," she said. "Life is great—but at the same time, it's wild. Married life and that whole world is wonderful and beautiful and, you know, we're having a great time."
While they are enjoying making new memories as spouses, there is one critical point of their past that the couple can't stop talking about: their first kiss. They simply don't agree on who initiated it—but, ultimately, came to the conclusion that they met halfway in the moment. "I think that she gave maybe the word saying it's cool and I was like, 'OK, here I come,'" Pearman-Maday recalled. "I maybe leaned in—and then we both leaned in a little more."
