Precious and Empire star Gabourey Sidibe engaged to boyfriend Brandon Frankel as she shows off diamond ring

PRECIOUS and Empire star Gabourey Sidibe is engaged to boyfriend Brandon Frankel.

The 37-year-old actress showed off her diamond ring in an Instagram post on Tuesday.

In the clip, Gabourey and Brandon said "hi" to the camera before she flashed her diamond ring.

Brandon said: "I put a ring on it!"

Gabourey shared: "That's it. That's all we wanted to say," while Brandon added: "We're engaged."

The post also included a photo of the pair, which has the actress front and center as she showed off the ring.

The Precious star wrote in the caption: "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.

"My BFF proposed and now I get to hold him forever.

"The funniest man I’ve ever met. The sweetest human to exist."

She continued: "@brandontour made up a song for when i put my bonnet on at night.

"The second I look a bit stressed and overwhelmed, he jumps into action to take over what he can for me.

"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."

The newly engaged star concluded: "My partner, my best friend, my cats’ daddy, my mans, my heart, my fiancé!!!"

The couple became Instagram official back in May 2019 when Brandon shared a snap of the pair dressed in 80s-themed clothes.

He captioned the post: "Mom & Dad rare night out 80s style to celebrate @tarajiphenson birthday // Party so lit we sucked it up and put on roller skates."

He also shared the engagement news on his Instagram account.

Brandon uploaded the same video his fiancée posted, as well as a shot of the couple's cat in which he's seen wearing a charm that reads: "Will you marry my daddy?"

Another snap showed giant balloons that spelled out: "Will you marry me?"

Brandon wrote in the caption: "I asked my best friend to marry me, and she said 'YES'!

"So excited to spend the rest of my life with the most amazing, hilarious, beautiful, and inspiring woman I’ve ever known.

"I couldn’t imagine a life without you.

"We make the best team, and we make everything fun and memorable.

"I liked it, so I put a 💍 on it. Love you to the moon and back @gabby3shabby."
