Tichina Arnold weds in Hawaii

The Big Momma’s House star exchanged vows with college basketball coach Rico Hines on Saturday (18Aug12) at the Oasis Oceanfront Estate in Honolulu in front of 70 guests.

And Arnold, 43, reveals the wedding location had extra special meaning to the couple, which became engaged in March (12).

She tells lifestyle website Essence.com, “Rico and I enjoyed our first vacation in Hawaii so we knew that we wanted to legalise our love here.”

It is Arnold’s second union – she was previously married to boxer Lamon Brewster, and she has an eight-year-old daughter, Alijah, with music producer Carvin Haggins.
