Gabourey Sidibe Announces She’s Engaged And Shows Off Her Ring

She’s made it official with Brandon Frankel.

Gabourey Sidibe is going to have a ring on it -- her boyfriend Brandon Frankel has popped the question.

The 37-year-old broke the news on Instagram, writing, “It’s weird that people think we’re already married but I guess our hearts and intentions for each other are just that clear to see. My BFF proposed and now I get to hold him forever.”

She gushed about 35-year-old Brandon, calling him, “The funniest man I’ve ever met. The sweetest human to exist. @brandontour made up a song for when I put my bonnet on at night. The second I look a bit stressed and overwhelmed, he jumps into action to take over what he can for me. Every moment with him is a joy. He is the partner I thought I was too independent to need.”

Sidibe even showed off her ring with Frankel adorably saying in the background, “I put a ring on it!”

Sidibe told The Daily Beast that she and Frankel have been dating since 2019.
