Derek Fisher and Gloria Govan to Postpone Spring Wedding During Coronavirus Crisis

Derek Fisher and Gloria Govan

*Gloria Govan and former NBA player Derek Fisher are rescheduling their April wedding amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“It was just based off of what the CDC advised and the current state of affairs,” Govan, 35, shared with PEOPLE of the decision. “We just felt like it was in everyone’s best interest, really.”
She adds, “So we were like, ‘Yeah, it’s just probably best to postpone.’ We had a few people traveling, a lot of our parents and aunts and uncles who are a little older. So we felt like it was in their best interest, and for everybody, to just not put anyone at risk. It was obviously a really crappy decision to have to make.”
She also noted that, “People were very, very understanding, which is really sweet.”
The wedding will still take place…. “We have a great wedding planner,” says Govan. “Erica Friedman is absolutely brilliant. She’s been really sweet with handling the vendors for us, you know, and explaining the situation.”

Fisher, 45, proposed to Govan in April 2018 after dating for three years. The couple is currently practicing social distancing with their blended family amid the COVID-19 chaos. 

“The schools, I think, have done the best job that they can do to help, you know, us as parents to follow as much of a daily routine that’s pretty consistent with what they have if they were on campus,” says Fisher. “We have kids at two different schools here in L.A. They have respective schedules that they need to follow and adhere to in order to keep some consistency in their lives. And so we’re trying our best to help them stay on schedule, help them with different assignments or homework or questions that they have in real-time.”

“We know for sure teachers should get paid a lot more,” he adds.

When it comes to pushing back their nuptials, the couple says they are grateful that their vendors have been “really flexible,” Govan notes: “They’ve been really nice to try to make sure that whatever date we choose in the future, that they’ll be available.”

“Derek and I have been together five and a half years. It’s been a fun ride and we’ve just been really grateful for our family and friends who have supported our journey.”
