Rae’s marriage to Diame may come as a surprise to some of her fans. The actress has been known to keep their relationship out of the spotlight, though Diame has occasionally joined her on red carpets over the years.

Rumors of their engagement first surfaced when Rae was spotted wearing a diamond ring in the cover photo of Essence magazine’s April 2019 issue. It was later confirmed by her “Insecure” costars Jay Ellisand Yvonne Orji that Issa and Louis were indeed together and planning to wed.

“We’re very excited for her,” Orji told Entertainment Tonight at the time, 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.”
