Queen Sugar actress Rutina Wesley is engaged to girlfriend Chef Shonda. The couple announced the news over the weekend on Instagram, with a photo reel that flashed the star's new diamond.

Wesley, who is also known for her role on True Blood, posted several photos of the couple, beginning with an inspirational quote. "Overthinking is the biggest cause of our unhappiness. Keep yourself occupied. Keep your mind off things that don't help you," it read. The following images show Wesley and Shonda smiling into the camera-likely just moments after the proposal-and end with what appears to be an engagement ring. In the caption, Wesley included a quote from Vladimir Nabokov's Lolita and listed several sweet hashtags, including "I was looking at her and found my joy" and "I love you more than words."


The actress hasn't been shy about displaying their relationship on social media. She's posted several cozy photos with Shonda over the course of the year, showing off their happy union while at several of her show's press events and playing with her dog, Isla. Earlier this month, she shared an image of the New Oreans-based chef driving and captioned the image, "From the inside out, you are the sunshine of my life."
