Rae, 34, caused speculation with her recent Essence Magazine cover and subsequent shoot, where her ring feature was decorated with a giant ring. Yvonne Orji and Jay Ellis appeared to have confirmed the exciting news while chatting with Entertainment Tonight at the NAACP Image Awards on Friday (Mar. 29).
“We all found out in different ways because we’re all on different text chains,” Ellis said. “We talk at different times, so we all found out at different times in different ways.” Added Orji, “The reaction was all the same, like, ‘You out here in these streets getting married, boo!?’ That was the reaction… We’re very excited for her.”
According to Page Six’s interview with Brilliant Earth’s Vice President of strategy and merchandising Kathryn Money, Rae’s ring is “a 2.5-carat cushion- or circle-cut diamond surrounded by a halo of diamond accents that extend along the ring’s contemporary split shank band.”
Rae has yet to confirm the news for herself, but if her co-stars are sincere, we are happy for her and this exciting new chapter in her relationship.
