Congratulations are officially in order for Insecure's Issa Rae and her longtime boyfriend, Louis Diame. Rumors of Rae's engagement began swirling after her Essence magazine cover was released last week; the shot showed the actress wearing massive ring on thatfinger. And while Rae has yet to confirm the engagement herself, herco-stars Jay Ellis and Yvonne Orji told Entertainment Tonight that the actress is, in fact, engaged to Diame.

At this year's NAACP Awards, Ellis and Orji told the outlet how they discovered the exciting news. "We're very excited for her," Orji expressed, with Ellis adding, "We all found out in different ways because we're all on different text chains. We talk at different times, so we all found out at different times in different ways."

Although all signs point to a definitive engagement, it's unlikely that Rae will confirm anything herself. In the past, Rae has been linked to other actors, but she has never confirmed any relationship and remains very private about her personal life-so private, in fact, that she's never commented publicly on Diame.

Because Rae is so secretive about her love life, it's hard to pinpoint exactly when the couple met. But Rae and Diame, who is a Sengalese businessman, have reportedly been in a relationship for about a decade-and they have even attended multiple red carpets together. Since the announcement is so new, not only will have to wait for a confirmation from the actress, but we'll also have to sit tight on any wedding planning details.
