Angela shared a video with fans from inside her home where guests danced the night away, and that their two children gave an emotional speech.

"25 years… When we first got married, we couldn’t wait to say we made it to 10 years! Now look at how far we’ve come!" Angela captioned the post.

"As Frankie says, 'Joy and pain are like sunshine and rain…' Whew! He sure was right! We’ve had ups, we’ve had downs; we gained two amazing children; but lost cherished family members and friends."

She continued: "We’ve had successes, we’ve had failures; we’ve had spectacular wins, we’ve had devastating losses. But through it all there’s been one, beautiful constant: We’ve always had each other! Thank you God for each and everyone one of these 25 years! We can’t wait to do 25 more! 10/12/1997."

Aisha was joined by her husband Silky Valente for the occasion, with the actress swearing a billowing blck dress with a bardot neckline.
