CREATOR OF THE EMMY NOMINATED HBO SERIES, INSECURE, ISSA RAE SURPRISED AMERICA AND HER MANY FANS THIS MORNING WITH IMAGES FROM HER WEDDING TO NOW HUSBAND, LOUIS DIAME.
Rae announced the nuptials via Instagram with a post comedically captioned: “A) Impromptu photo shoot in a custom @verawang dress. B) My girls came to help me, but they all coincidentally had on the same dress! They were sooooo embarrassed. C) Then I took a few flicks with Somebody’s Husband.”
According to a 2012 Washington Post article about The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl, the precursor to Insecure created by Rae, Diame is identified as her beau & boyfriend. Rumors of their engagement began in March 2019 when Rae was spotted with a diamond ring on her left hand.
However their engagement was never confirmed by Rae and when questioned on the daytime talk show, The View, regarding the matter Rae evaded answering by stating, “I’ve got a lot of rings on my finger. I wear jewelry, you know?”
Her former co-star's, Yvonne Orji and Jay Ellis, spoke on the engagement more than Rae did herself. “We all found out in different ways because we’re all on different text chains. We talk at different times, so we all found out at different times in different ways,” Jay Ellis told Entertainment Tonight. Yvonne Orji stated all the reactions to the news was the same, "‘You out here in these streets getting married, boo?!’ That was the reaction.”
Fans of the actor left commentary and their personal takes about the way in which Rae surprised the public with her secret marriage. Check the tweets out below.
