Past CYInterview Guest Anika Noni Rose Marries Jason Dirden

Anika Noni Rose, the voice of Princess Tiana in the 2009 Disney film The Princess and the Frog, has found her real life prince.

This week, the Tony Award winning actress/singer announced she had married actor Jason Dirden. Mr. Dirden is perhaps best known for his role on the television show Greenleaf.

Ms. Rose spoke with us during her press tour for The Princess and the Frog. At that time, the only prince she would talk about, in her life was her then four-year-old nephew:

“I have a lovely prince. He’s four years old and he’s my nephew and I adore him and that is the only prince that I will talk about even a little bit. I don’t want to put his name in the public, but he’s my favorite prince in the world.”

Congratulations to Anika and her husband Jason on their nuptials! You can find our past CYInterviews with Anika by clicking here and here.
