Newlyweds Matt Barnes and Gloria Govan graced the cover of Rolling Out magazine looking crazy in love as they both posed for the fabulous pics shot by DeWayne Rogers. The Love & Basketball couple officially tied the knot in Las Vegas last weekend in a very private ceremony in a cute little chapel.
In the issue, the couple talks about the breakup, what they learned about being apart, marriage and their plans for the future.
Gloria on their eight-month hiatus:
“We took an eight-month hiatus,” she says. “Now that we’re back together, we’re mainly focused on becoming friends again and mainly parents too. We got into such a routine that we forgot to do all the lovey-dovey stuff like date nights.”
“I grew so much over those eight months. Now I have to be like, ’Uh uh, I know I used to like that because you liked that … I said all that to be cute for you but I don’t like eggs mother—–!’ So now he’s really getting to know me. That’s fun.”
Matt on their time apart:
“We love each other,” he says while sitting in a smart black suit looking as he did when he modeled during Fashion Week. “As a young couple you need to experience stuff and live your life and do things sometimes on your own. I understood that and she understood that. It was a small break that was hard, but at the time was needed. It brought us closer together and we’re a lot stronger now.”
“I don’t think it’ll be what people are expecting. I’ll probably be like ‘hey, I got married girl,’ wanna come to the party? I’ll probably send out a flyer for the party,” she said.
“Matt’s a traditionalist so [he’d] want a big wedding. Which I would do, but it won’t be like a Kim Kardashian wedding. It [would] be like, ‘you want some barbecue?’ she said, her eyes gleaming with amusement. “I’ll take cereal,” she said with a chuckle. “Marriage is something I [wanted] to do, it just [was] not on my number one priority list.”
On her having baby fever:
”Maybe, don’t tell him I said this … maybe another baby,” says Gloria in a whisper. ”If it was up to him … [rolls eyes] … I get baby fever and then I see a baby and I’m like ‘awww’ and then they start crying and I’m like, ‘Yeah! I don’t have anymore!’ ”
