The beautiful Gabourey Sidibe is entering the holiday weekend as a whole fiancée.

The 37-year-old actress shared the beautiful news that her longtime boyfriend Brandon Frankel had put a ring on it. “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,” Sidibe wrote in an Instagram post showing off her gorgeous engagement ring. “My BFF proposed and now I get to hold him forever. The funniest man I’ve ever met. The sweetest human to exist.”

Sidibe went on to describe all the ways her boyfriend makes her life better. “The second I look a bit stressed and overwhelmed, he jumps into action to take over what he can for me,” she writes. “Every moment with him is a joy. He is the partner I thought I was too independent to need. 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!!!”

Frankel also shared the happy news, revealing just how much his fiancée means to him. “! So excited to spend the rest of my life with the most amazing, hilarious, beautiful, and inspiring woman I’ve ever known,” he said. “I couldn’t imagine a life without you. We make the best team, and we make everything fun and memorable.”

In his post, Frankel also revealed that he proposed by having their pet cat wear a collar charm that asked, “will you marry my daddy?” How perfect?!

Congratulations to the happy couple!
