Is Loni Love married? She’s spending the holidays with her partner, James Welsh.

Taking a chance on love, Loni and James initially met on the dating site Christian Mingle.

Since getting together, Loni has been candid about the challenges of being in an interracial relationship. But her connection with James outweighs them all. “We've been together for like three years, and James is hilarious,” she told Distractify.

Loni told us that she looks forward to the holiday season as the couple have busy work schedules, and the holidays are the only time of year when they are free of their day-to-day obligations.

“It's nice to have somebody that you can share the holidays with. He's always there. He's been a great support system for me,” Loni said. “Because his kids are grown and I don't have any children, we usually try to travel during that time, because we're [usually] both really busy working,” The Real host added.

Before she and James began dating, Loni spent the holidays with friends. Now, she has a plus one for “added love”.
