JoJo Simmons is a married man now. The reality TV star and son of Run-D.M.C. member Rev. Run tied the knot with his longtime girlfriend Tanice.

JoJo’s sister, Angela Simmons took to Instagram to share a few videos from his big day. Angela shared a video on her Instagram story of the ice sculpture that JoJo and Tanice had at their wedding reception. It was heart-shaped and had both of their names engraved in it.

Angela also shared a video where she quizzed JoJo on his experience as a married man. “How does it feel?” she asked her brother. “You’re a married man.” “It feels the same,” JoJo replied.

“Exactly the same?” Angela then asked. “Exactly the same except I’m icy now,” JoJo said waving his diamond-encrusted wedding band.
