The Get Out star, who wore a custom Oscar de la Renta gown for her nuptials, opened up to Glamour in January 2015 about her desire to start a family.

“I’ve known I wanted to be a mom ever since I was a baby,” she told the magazine. “Everyone says you can’t plan for it. You’re never ready. I have a lot of questions: How do I get to a place in my career where I can go be a mom for a little while and then come back and be a mom and an actress at the same time?”

Allison also discussed her newlywed status withSavannah Guthrie on the Today show in March 2016.
