Sterling K. Brown might have been completely caught off guard by his much deserved 2016 Emmy win on Sunday night, but he couldn’t let the moment pass without thanking his amazing wife for all of her support. 

“Contrary to popular belief, I got the hottest chick in the game rocking my chain, Ryan Michelle Bathe, you make this go. I love you.”

Brown scored his first win for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or Movie for his role as Chris Darden in American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson.
