The White House said the “small, family wedding” was taking place at the Pennsylvania home of Cuffe Owens’s parents, Valerie Biden Owens and Jack Owens. Valerie is President Biden’s younger sister.
King, 37, revealed in an Instagram post last month that she was dating Owens, who is 42. She posted a photo of the two of them hugging with a caption that read: “Trying my best to avoid any cheesy introductions like ‘my main squeeze’ ... so just meet my man.”
King had previously been married to former professional baseball player Jim Edmonds. The two split up in 2019 after five years of marriage. King has three children from her marriage with Edmonds — a daughter and two twin boys.
King rose to fame on the “Real Housewives,” a reality series on Bravo that chronicles the lives of wealthy women in various cities across the U.S. She left the show in 2018 after being a cast member for three seasons. The Orange County chapter is the longest running franchise of the “Real Housewives.”
Owens is an attorney based in Los Angeles.
In an interview with Brides magazine published later Monday, King revealed that the two met on a dating app and realized quickly that they wanted to get married.
“Our wedding was about two things for us," King told the publication. "Our love for and commitment to each other, and our family—each of our families, and the new very large and very tight family that we were bonding together by getting married. That’s it.”
The wedding was attended by 50 people, according to the magazine, which published photos of the couple. King wore a blazer dress and Owens a navy blue suit.
The president and first lady spent the weekend at their home in Wilmington, Del., before attending the wedding. The Bidens are scheduled to travel back to Washington, D.C., later Monday afternoon.
