Issa Rae surprised fans on Monday when she revealed that she tied the knot with her man in France over the weekend.
In a hilarious Instagram post the actress wrote, “A) Impromptu photoshoot in a custom @verawang dress. B) My girls came to help me, but they all coincidentally had on the same dress! They were sooooo embarrassed. C) Then I took a few flicks with Somebody’s Husband. Big thanks to @whiteedenweddings for being so gracious and accommodating and making this feel so real and special.”
A glowing Issa shared photos of the beautiful moment, as well as making it Instagram official with her bae and fans raved.
“Issa Rae really wrapped up her Emmy-nominated series, flew to Miami to start production on her next show, then got married and summer isn’t even over yet. What an icon,” journalist, Njera Perkins tweeted.
Another fan added, “Issa Rae said “private until permanent” I know that’s right!”
Issa Rae is notoriously private about her personal life, but her Insecure co-stars spilled the tea in an interview with Entertainment Tonight.
Jay Ellis said at the time that they “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.” According to Yvonne Orji, “The reaction was all the same, like, ‘You out here in these streets getting married, boo?!’ That was the reaction.”
Issa explained her inspiration for privacy came after commentators would put their 2 cents when nobody asked for their donation.
“I remember, back in the day, I used to post my relationship from a long time ago,” she told Elaine Welteroth in an interview for Bustle. “And I remember I saw these commenters that I didn’t know, comment on an old picture and be like, ‘See.’ And I was like, ‘Oh, I don’t like this.’ And then, from that point forward, I was like, ‘Oh, I’m never acknowledging anything.’”
