Tiffany Thornton just revealed some very big news, and we cannot be more excited for the former Disney Channel star. The Sonny With a Chance and So Random! actress just got married! Her new love Josiah Capaci, who is a Worship Pastor for Gospel Light Church and Teen Revolution, proposed in April – and now they've officially tied the knot. The engagement and wedding may have happened quickly, but it isn't "so random!" The couple is head over heels in love, and they already appear to be one big, happy family.
Tiffany previously took to Instagram to share photos from her wedding shower and update her followers on the upcoming celebration.
She captioned it, "Had a blast tonight at my wedding shower!! I can't believe I will be married in two weeks!! Thank you to everyone who came. You are all so special to me and I love you dearly! Xoxo."
The Disney Channel alum then took to Instagram to post a bunch of photos from her wedding day. The one with the most attention was the one she captioned, "You are the greatest thing that's ever happened to me. I'll love you forever."
You see – Josiah will become the stepfather to Tiffany's two sons, 5-year-old Kenneth James Carney and 3-year-old Bentley Cash Carney. Their birth father and Tiffany's late husband Christopher Carney was tragically killed in a car crash in December of 2015. That's why haters in the comments were slamming Tiffany for moving on and saying that her new husband is "the greatest thing" to happen to her. It totally breaks our hearts that anyone would want to make this day anything less than happy for Tiffany. She's been through a lot and definitely deserves all the love and positivity that comes her way. The star didn't let the negativity go unnoticed, as she addressed the haters in a later post.
She wrote, "This. This is love. That all encompassing, enduring, accepting, near perfect love. The kind that trumps my need to snap back at people who have the audacity to comment on my Instagram about whether I loved my first husband or not. But let me take a moment to explain something to you. There is no timeline for grief or for when God moves in your life in undeniable ways. There are a lot of people who think it isn't good to be transparent on social media but I say forget that. I'm going to be open and honest because God wants me to. It's part of my testimony and it needs to be said. I was a mess yesterday during our wedding ceremony. So many emotions flooded my heart as I walked down those balcony steps to the arms of my gift from God. I thought of Chris watching us and knowing he would have loved the choice I made, for me and for the boys. I thought of Chris's amazing parents sitting front row and how much of a blessing they have been and will forever be in our lives. How happy they are for the boys and I and how much they already love Josiah. I am so completely humbled by the love I receive from this man. Jo came along EXACTLY when God knew I needed him. It wasn't my choice to fall in love so quickly after chris passed but I was growing so comfortable with being alone that it was becoming unhealthy. Looking back now I think God saw that if I went too long without love that it would become increasingly difficult for me to submit to the authority of a husband after being set in my own ways. When I say 'Jo is the greatest thing that's ever happened to me' that in no way indicates that I didn't love my first husband with all that I had. How dare any one of you judge me and say that on a social platform. It doesn't make you any better of a person to cast judgment on others and sit in the seat of mockers. I will always love chris and jo knows that. And I will always love Jo. The beautiful thing about love is that it multiplies as new blessings come into your life. I don't have to share one bucket of love with the special people in my life. Each one has their own bucket. Get it? Isn't that amazing?? God's timing is not our own. And I praise Him for that. You should too."
We wish the newlyweds nothing but joy!
