Gabourey Sidibe Reveals She's Engaged To Boyfriend Brandon Frankel | 22 Words

Gabourey Sidibe has us all gushing over her latest Instagram post after her boyfriend, Brandon Frankel shared the most amazing news! Read on to find out about their beautiful engagement...

Gabourey Sidibe was an unknown in Hollywood until her big break in Precious made her the toast of the town.

Despite being a newcomer, she found herself nominated for acting awards across the board.

Precious is actually an adaptation of a novel called "Push", but both deal with some extremely dark subjects.

Among the subjects the film touches on include physical and sexual abuse, mental illness, incest, and even AIDs. So yeah, it's a hell of a ride. But it's an incredible film nonetheless.

Precious was Sidibe's acting debut, believe it or not.

She was nominated for Academy Awards, Golden Globes, and just about every other award under the sun.

She didn't fit the mold of your typical Hollywood actress, but her talent was impossible to ignore...

And despite making her Hollywood debut in such an amazing fashion, she wasn't finished there. She set out to undergo a transformation that put her back in the headlines!

As is often the case, she struggled with trolls on the Internet...

And having to constantly defend her body and self-worth publicly.

Gabby didn't let them get her down though...

And her weight-loss journey is inspiring.

She's dropped over seventy pounds!

And that's just the start of it, too!

She's looking slimmer and trimmer than ever before...

And things have only improved for her since

She had the greatest response to those knocking her for her appearance, saying:

“To people making mean comments about my GG pics, I mos def cried about it on that private jet on my way to my dream job last night. #JK," she said. And despite enjoying some leisure time on her private jet, she still finds herself in the gym constantly and is continuing to lose weight.

Gabby is very active on her Instagram and she regularly posts fitness and health updates for her fans...

But what isn't standard is the complete transformation she's undergone (And is still undergoing!).

We're obsessed with how far she's come!

The public took it as showing off weight loss, but really, she just wanted to show off her get-up.

Here she is more recently...

And we have to say, she's looking incredible.

She's doing what makes her happy...

Which just happens to be better for her health as well.

And the good news just keeps on coming for the star...

As she revealed on Tuesday, her boyfriend, thirty-five-year-old Brandon Frankel, finally popped the question!

Fans are unbelievably happy for the adorable couple...

And floods of congratulations soon came pouring in.

Gabby started dating Brandon back in May, 2019...

And it's been a joy to watch their love blossom ever since.

"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," she wrote in her heartwarming Instagram post.

"My BFF proposed and now I get to hold him forever," she added. "The funniest man I’ve ever met. The sweetest human to exist."

"@brandontour made up a song for when I put my bonnet on at night," she continued.

" 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," she concluded.

"My partner, my best friend, my cats’ daddy, my mans, my heart, my fiancé!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️"

Frankel made his own post detailing how he proposed to his "best friend."

In one photo, their cat can be seen wearing a tag that reads, "Will you marry my daddy?" While giant balloons can also be seen spelling out "Will you marry me?"

Gabby was clearly over the moon with the announcement.

In January, the actress called him "the cherry on top of this last decade and the foundation of the next."
