All about Brittany Howard's Wife, Parents, Net Worth & More
The famous Alabama Shakes singer Brittany Howard relishes a happy life with her wife.
But as Brittany's musical career is all well presented in the media, her married life, on the other hand, is not really out in the open, which has made her followers more curious about her relationship with her wife.
Brittany Howards's Relationship with Her Wife
Brittany's first meeting with Jesse was in Nashville. The couple's date was arranged by their mutual friends, and it turned into a good start as Brittany's happiness was doubled when she came to know Jesse Lafser was also from the music field.
Brittany then unexpectedly started developing feelings for Jesse. During one of her interviews with The New Yorker, she expressed her exact feelings at the moment as,
"My palms were sweaty, and my heart wouldn't stop beating really fast. I was panicking. My stomach was flipping. I thought I had diabetes. The doctor was, like, 'You're fine.' Then one of my friends was, like, 'You're in love!'"
And the rest is history.
New feelings led them to get married in 2019, and the marriage venue was nothing but perfect- 'a mountain, next to a stream.' So dreamy!
Since their marriage, the couple has made several public appearances together, and they seem nothing but adorable. Moreover, Brittany's whole family cheers for the couple, which definitely creates a sense of fulfillment in their relationship.
Although Brittany has now embraced her sexuality and relishes a blissful life, it was not the same in the past.

With all of her confusion regarding her sexuality, Brittany was not confident to reveal her interests and desires from the beginning.
Additionally, the society in which she grew up did not fully accept the people who belonged to the LGBTQIA+ community, because of which she was scared to reveal her sexuality.
Revealing more on this context, the Athens grown-up Brittany quoted as,
“When I lived in Athens, gay people looked a certain way, and I didn’t look like them.”
She also revealed how she then went to the city and realized they were happy, and there isn't a specific way gay people are supposed to look like.
With this point, she accumulated all her courage, and she told her parents about her sexuality and openly announced that she was a lesbian.
Convincing her parents was not an easy thing; however, she could convince them. Acceptance of Howard's sexuality in her family was also partly because of her sister.
Her sister Jaime Howard was born with retinoblastoma, and as a result, the Howard family lost one of their daughters.
And with no plan of losing Brittany as well, her mother accepted her.
"I have one daughter left, and I'm not gonna abandon her..."
Regardless of the past, Howard has now finally begun her fresh start with her partner despite all the hurdles in between, and the couple's love is not less than any love story.
