From reporting a beautiful wedding to being a part of one. Let's read how she does it all.

Shirleen Allicot's Wedding Bells

Not one to publicize her personal life, Shirleen has managed to flaunt her married life just enough. The reporter seems to be successfully leading her romantic life as per the looks of her social media. 

Enjoying holidays with her husband Jesse together, the married couple celebrated their wedding anniversary on 25th June 2018. Safe to assume that her wedding vows remain intact as the couple seems to be sharing an endless love for each other.

Born in the Co-operative Republic of Guyana, with her parents residing in the United States, Shirleen was the reporter for the royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who had the opportunity to witness and cover such a grand and beautiful event.

Almost 3 years in, she and her life partner's relationship continues to flourish. The secret might be in their tendency to taunt each other online.

For instance, when Jesse left for Vegas in December 2018, she Instagrammed a very risque image with the star of AquamanJason Mamoa, as a means to get back at him for leaving her alone.

Mother of Three Children

Shirleen, in an already appealing life, added one more spark of joy on 15 March 2017 when she and her husband Jesse welcomed a baby daughter Shayla together. The reporter shared her happiness on her Facebook account on 18 March 2017, confirming the good news.

“Talk about a girl who respects deadlines! Our little one waited out the storm Tuesday and arrived right on time, March 15th! Shayla Joëlle already made her television debut on Eyewitness News at Noon yesterday (go, girl!). She's her daddy's twin and loves to eat and sleep. 3 days into parenthood, Baby Shay continues to amaze us and we can't stop staring at the precious little person we created. If you have any advice for this new mommy, who hasn't slept in 3 days, please share!”

Allicot, a perfect wife in herself, now has one added responsibility in the form of a mother. However, not one to back down from challenges, she seems to be engaged in her newfound role. Going by her social media account, she could not be any happier.

Her motivation to match her ambition undoubtedly saw a likely boost when she learned about becoming pregnant for the second time back in October of 2018.
