After years in the spotlight, Raven-Symoné is finally opening up about her personal life. During a recent interview with People, the Raven’s Home actress got candid about the next chapter of her life, and spoke out about her sexuality and life with her new wife, Miranda Maday.

“I’m scared. I’m not used to putting my personal life out there,” the 34-year-old explained. “Despite being someone who has kept my personal life private, I decided to share this moment because it’s one of the biggest and happiest of my life. Miranda makes me feel confident and empowered in an entirely new way. We planned our ceremony together and it was a true reflection of our love and partnership.”

For those who missed it, back in June, the Disney Channel star announced that she married her girlfriend in an intimate backyard ceremony. As fans know, this is the first time the actress has introduced her significant other to the world.

Aside from talking about her wife, Raven also said that her hiatus from Hollywood back in 2013 allowed her to come to terms with her sexuality.

“I actually had time to think for myself and no one to tell me differently. It helped me realize that I’m kind of addicted to the industry because of the fact I had been in it for so long. I had to transform that addiction into something that is positive for me because I was getting very toxic to myself and others,” she explained.

Now that she’s finally “taking control” of her life, what’s next for the actress? Well, she’s gearing up to release a brand new album called new album, The Reintroduction.

“I get to make new plans with a brilliant woman, and we get to create an empire for ourselves,” Raven said about the future. “We get to map out our future in ways that we want.”
