Niecy Nash has earned legions of loyal fans for her portrayal of FBI agent, Simone Clarke on The Rookie spin-off - and her wife is one of them!

The DJ - who also played Niecy's girlfriend on the show - took to Instagram on Saturday and delighted fans with a rare look at their life away from the small screen. 

Jessica revealed her wife had made her breakfast in bed inside their beautiful home and shared a clip of her meal being brought to her by Niecy.

The actress looked so different, dressed down in a cute pair of pajamas and with her long hair worn loose. She went makeup free as she carefully carried a tray full of goodies for Jessica who captioned the story: "I love her soooo much."

Niecy brought some champagne, coffee and a meal of eggs and avocado which pleased Jessica no end.

The pair first connected on social media in 2015 when Niecy was still married to her now-ex-husband, Jay Tucker. 

While their relationship was initially platonic, following her split with Jay in October 2019, Niecy and Jessica soon realized that they wanted to be more than friends.

 "I loved her before I was in love with her because she is such a special human being," Niecy told People. "But we began to see each other in a way we never had before. 

"Sometimes you get so broken by love, you run from it. But I've learned that you should always hold space for magic because it can happen at any time."

The Dahmer actress was married twice before her relationship with Jessica, enjoying a 13-year marriage to ordained minister Don Nash, with whom she shares three children.

The pair divorced in 2007 and in 2010, she became engaged to Jay Tucker. Niecy was married to Jay from 2011 to 2019, when they announced their pending divorce, which was finalized in March 2020.
