She included several photos from the pair’s special day, which show them donning white dresses and flower crowns while exchanging vows. 

In her post, Schneider stated that she and Davis would be holding a ‘traditional wedding’ next year because their busy year delayed planning.

‘We will still be having a traditional wedding & reception next summer, but our lives have been much too busy this year to get very far in planning it, and we couldn’t wait that long to proclaim our love and commitment to each other,’ she explained, adding: ‘Thank you, everyone for your support!’

In a tweet, Schneider gushed over marrying her supportive girlfriend, as well as how much her life has changed since becoming a Jeopardy! champion.

From November 2021 to January 2022, Schneider won 40 consecutive games, which is the second longest streak in the show’s history behind contestant Ken Jennings.

Her winning streak came to an end on January 28 and she walked away with $1,382,800, according to Bloomberg.

She is also the first-ever transgender competitor to qualify for the Tournament of Champions.

‘The year since has been full of good days, but by far the best one was May 9th, when Genevieve and I got married.

‘Without her, none of the other good days would have happened. I’m so lucky to share my life with her,’ concluded the star.

Schneider and Davis first met in July 2020 through mutual friends.

The couple formed a strong bond over the course of the pandemic, which eventually turned romantic.

They officially began dating in February 2021 and got engaged almost exactly a year later. 

Schneider eagerly shared the engagement news with her over 71,000 Instagram followers, which included a look at their matching diamond rings.

‘She said yes! Well, actually I said yes, but then I wanted to propose too, so she said yes as well lol,’ she began.

‘I couldn’t be happier or more proud to be marrying the very best person in the entire world, and I’m so glad to be sharing my life with her. It’s great to be able to introduce her to people as ‘Genevieve, my fiancée” Schneider concluded.

In an interview with the New York Times earlier this year, Schneider confessed that she’d only been in ‘two serious relationships in my life, and this is the second.’ 

She was previously married to Kelly Anneken but the pair split up in 2016 after 12 years together.

Schneider, who was born male, had not transitioned at the time of her relationship with Anneken.

In a candid Twitter post made last year, Schneider revealed that she ‘realized I was trans’ the same year as her divorce from Anneken.
