Lena Waithe Talks Wedding Plans With Fianceé Alana Mayo
We’re huge fans of Lena Waithe so naturally we’re intrigued to learn more about her love life. The first black woman to win an Emmy for comedy writing (for “Master of None”) recently spoke with People about her upcoming wedding plans with partner Alana Mayo, after getting engaged last Thanksgiving.
“It’s a little nutty,” the writer/actress told PEOPLE with a laugh of her busy schedule. “I’m trying to balance it out, but I’m really grateful.”
Waithe and Mayo, a production exec, are currently juggling their work demands with wedding planning.
“It’s going to be super small, crazy small,” says Waithe of their wedding. “It’s almost like an excuse to have fun with our friends.”
“We’re anti-stress,” she said. “We’re trying to make it not a stressful situation, that’s our goal.”
Lena has always come across super chill, down to earth and cool, which is exactly what this wedding sounds like it will be.
