The past year has been an absolute whirlwind for My 600 Lb Life Season 4 star Nikki Webster. Her weight loss journey continues to be a success, only Nikki Webster today goes by Nikki Gray — because the former she took her now-husband Marcus’ last name when the two got married!
If you’re thinking that that happened fast, you’re not alone. In our last update on Nikki, we were surprised to discover she and Marcus had wed. Nikki’s 2017 Where Are They Now? episode captured one of her first dates with Marcus, and, while she certainly seemed smitten then, she was also trying to tell herself to keep it slow.
““Things have been going really well between us, and I like [Marcus] a lot,” Nikki said at the time. (Her follow-up episode appears to have filmed through the spring of 2017.) “He’s a really good guy, and I have a lot of fun when I’m with him. And the more time we spend together, the more I can see the possibility of a future between us. And that alone is incredible to even be able to think.”
Nikki further elaborated upon she and Marcus’ swift moves in an apologetic Instagram update earlier this year. We say “apologetic” because Nikki felt obliged to say she was sorry to her followers for having updated so sporadically, only to then reveal the reason why she’d been spending less time on social media than usual 🙂
Here’s the wedding day photo Nikki shared in that update, followed by the complete caption:
INSTAGRAMMMMM!! It’s been way too long and about 8 months..which have been a whirlwind because::
A. I got engaged
B. I got married 2 months after said engagement
C. Husband and I now live in the cutest little apartment
D. Am ridiculously and blissfully in love and happy with married life. Seriously. We’re gross.
I always have the desire to be a good Instagram poster..buuuuttt..I fail miserably at it. Sooo…here’s to future big events, moments of clarity, quirky little moments of life, and gratuitous selfies I may post in the future:) Also…here’s a pic of me on my wedding day, pre wedding. I was beaming.
❤️ Love ya’lls faces!
And very shortly after that, Nikki shared what’s also turned out to be her most recent Instagram photos: a beautiful collection of shots taken on she and Marcus’ December 2017 wedding day. It’s true that every bride looks radiant on her wedding day, but, keeping in mind all the challenges she’s faced since well before My 600 Lb Life‘s cameras began filming her, Nikki seems especially happy to have fallen in love this hard.

Shameful Wedding Post. Realllly late wedding post…We got married in the LDS Temple in Saint Louis. It was an absolutely gorgeous, sweet, and perfect day. If you’re ever in the St. Louis area and need your picture taken…@benandbeccalee knocked our socks off. We were so thrilled with our wedding pics. ❤️
Finally, here’s one more shot of Nikki and Marcus together. Dated this past August 29th, it appears to be the most recent photo that Nikki has made public. And yes: to use Nikki’s own language, it does look like she and her husband are still so “ridiculously and blissfully in love” that the whole thing is just gross 😉
