Model Chanel Iman and her beau NFL player Sterling Shepard wed on March 3 in Beverly Hills. The wedding was a night to remember as with celebrities like Gabrielle Union, Odell Beckham Jr. and Joan Smalls attending the beautiful ceremony. Tiffany Haddish provided the humor of the night offering a warm toast and warning to Shepard.
“I knew you could take care of any man you decided to take care of and I’m glad you decided to take care of that one ’cause I can see his soul,” Haddish toasted in a video by Brides.
She then addressed the Giants wide receiver directly, “You better worship the ground she walk on ’cause she’s got a gangster-ass b**ch that got her back”. Before giving her sincere apologies to the clergy in the room. “Sorry, pastor!”
Haddish and Iman became close friends while working on a film and sharing a trailer together. The comedian ended her speech with some words of advice for the newlywedded couple. “Make sure y’all have fun together,” she said. “I ain’t that old, but I’m old, but I ain’t that old. But I’ve seen things. From my observation, the relationships that last the longest are the relationships where you have fun. You are going to have your ups and your downs, but find time to have fun.”
