R&B star Monica and her new hubby Shannon Brown have given new meaning to the wedding-invitation term "reception to follow."

The singer, 30, and her NBA-star spouse married quietly in a private ceremony  on Nov. 22 in Los Angeles Рbut won't hold the party and "official" wedding for friends and family until June, according to Sandrarose.com

"It's true," Brown, a 25-year-old Lakers guard, confirmed to http://www.hiphopnonstop.tv/ Wednesday. "That's my wife, I'm her husband, you know. We're going to continue to make positive things happen."

Monica, who also Tweets her love for Brown (and showed off a huge diamond ring in October), is mom to two young sons, Rodney III and Romelo Montez, who were featured on her reality show The Single: Monica.
