“CBS Mornings” co-anchor Gayle King is once again a newly minted mother-in-law.

On Tuesday, the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover model shared photos of the fairytale wedding of her son William Bumpus Jr., which was held at the estate of her longtime bestie Oprah Winfrey.

King announced the nuptials on Tuesday’s broadcast, and later shared the glowing photos on Instagram.

“My favorite son Will and my new favorite daughter-in-law Elise Smith tied the knot on Sunday,” she said on the show, backed by a stream of photos from the family-only wedding. “Oprah of course was there ’cause it was at Oprah’s house. It’s always nice when she lets us use her house.”

CBS joined in the fun, posting the segment containing her announcement on X with the words, “Congratulations to @GayleKing’s favorite son Will and new favorite daughter-in-law Elise, who got married on Sunday! Gayle shares some of her favorite moments and pictures.”

King went on to share a number of photos of the event she termed “magical.”

“Favorite son Will found the girl of his dreams, and now lovely @elisemariesmith is an official member of the family,” King wrote on Instagram. “It was truly a spectacular family wedding!”

The bride’s father officiated; King’s daughter, Kirby, served as “best woman;” and Kirby’s son, Luca, bore the rings. The mothers of both bride and groom walked their children down the aisle.

Kirby and Will Jr. are King’s kids with ex-husband William Bumpus, to whom she was married from 1982 to 1993. Bumpus Sr. was also at the wedding, King told her colleagues.

King said Oprah “pulled out all the stops,” with acclaimed “Top Chef” winner Mei Lin and a host of other top-notch event planners and decorators to create “an epic wedding.”

For a surprise at the end, unbeknownst even to King, Winfrey arranged a path lined with sparklers, framing the couple in a golden glow against the night sky.

King added that the happy couple is planning a huge blowout dance party for their friends and those who could not attend the ceremony.

King previously became a mother-in-law when Kirby tied in knot in December 2020.
