Gabourey Sidibe Announces She’s Engaged And Shows Off Her Ring
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.”
The Oscar nominee also added, “I’ve learned so much about myself through him and I feel grateful and excited to learn more about the entire world with him by my side. My partner, my best friend, my cats’ daddy, my mans, my heart, my fiancé!!!”
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.
