What do you do when a pandemic comes along and ruins your wedding plans? You make a Plan B, that’s what – and if you’re Kirby Bumpus, that means holding your nuptials at the home of one of most famous people on the planet.
That name – Kirby Bumpus – probably won’t mean much on its own. The young woman keeps a low profile and doesn’t flaunt her famous connections. But when you hear her mom is Gayle King it shouldn’t take long to make a pretty safe assumption: Oprah Winfrey must be an important person in her life.
And you’d be right. The talk-show queen has played a big role in the life of her best friend’s daughter since day one. She’s Kirby’s godmother and has followed every achievement and celebrated every milestone along the way.
