The 27-year-old tweeted Friday: “I can finally get married! Yay government! So proud of you.”

After indicating that she’s a lesbian, Raven-Symone in a statement said: “I am very happy that gay marriage is opening up around the country and is being accepted.”

The actress, who starred on “That’s So Raven” on Disney Channel, kept her gender preference private in the past, but is now expressive on how she felt over the legalization of same sex marriage.

“I was excited to hear today that more states legalized gay marriage. I, however am not currently getting married, but it is great to know I can now, should I wish to,” she reportedly stated.

Raven-Symone’s camp clarified, however, that wedding bells won’t be ringing for her anytime soon.
