Jay Ellis' admirers are currently in distress, as it appears as the actor is officially off the market.
According to multiple outlets, the Insecure star is now engaged to his longtime girlfriend, Serbian actress/model Nina Senicar, and the couple is reportedly expecting their first child together.
Senicar opened up about the exciting news in an interview with Serbian publication Story.
"Perhaps she is not quite aware even now, because it's hard to believe that dreams are being fulfilled in just a few months when they have been under the umbrella of the fantasy for years," the translated text reads.
"Namely, this year's beauty will stand in front of the altar with its chosen one, Jay Ellis (37), and in the autumn couple will get a child," the article continues. "Life was fairly fabulous all this time while achieving some other set goals, reviving dreams on a relationship between the California ... and Italian fantasy, but now it's time for the actress to find a new, deeper meaning."
Ellis and Senicar have reportedly been dating since 2015. Though the actor has not publicly revealed his partner's identity, he has been photographed with Senicar on several carpets throughout the years and confirmed in a 2017 The Breakfast Club interview that he was, indeed, in a relationship.
“I am in a relationship. I’m in a very happy relationship, and that’s where I leave it,” he said at the time. “I don’t really worry about anything else, and that’s it. I think for me, we give so much of ourselves in what we do no matter what side of the industry we’re on, so for me… a relationship for me is probably the most important thing that I think two people can have.”
Ellis' fans and admirers seem to be taking the apparently surprising news hard, with some strangely finding issue with his reported partner being white. On the other hand, some have expressed that they're happy he's found love.
