Our girl is engaged!  We're just here for the litty bachelorette party.  Deets inside on Issa Rae's engagement, straight from her co-stars mouths, reportedly.

Awkward our a--.  Issa Rae is about to be a whole wife out in these streets.  That diamond she's been rocking lately is indeed an engagement ring, this according to Yvonne Orji and Jay Ellis.


Last month, we spotted a huge rock on Issa's finger in one of her IG Stories.  We called it then that she may be engaged. 

When some people thought she was simply on set and it may be part of a character, we shot that possibility down when she hit up Mardi Gras during some down time with friends, wearing the ring extra loud and proud:


When she had that diamond on full display during her latest magazine cover shoot, we knew something was definitely up:

Four years ago, when all I had was a web series and a book, @Essence put me on my first cover with four incredible women I look up to: Ava, Mara, Shonda and Ms. Debbie. It was their "Game Changers" issue and I kept thinking, "I can't believe they chose me." That cover meant so much to me because it validated my work on a platform I respected AND it was a nurturing recognition of promise, a promise that I didn't necessarily see in myself at the time. Four years later -- entering the fourth season of my TV show, and shooting my fourth movie in New York -- they honored me with this solo cover. Thank you, Essence, for helping me to deliver on that promise you saw years ago, and changing the game for me. @itayshaphoto Hair: @lovingyourhair Face: @joannasimkin Fits: @jasonrembert

Her supposed fiance (atop) is Louis Diame, a Senagalese businessman according to Entertainment Tonight. And they've supposedly been dating for a while. He's hit up a few red carpets with her in the past. Issa and her "Insecure" co-stars hit up Saturday night's NAACP Image Awards where both Yvonne and Jay confirmed to Entertainment Tonight that Issa's somebody's fiance:

"We're very excited for her," Orji expressed, with Ellis adding, "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."

Congrats chick!
