Danielle Brooks is entering the new year as a newly engaged woman. She showed off her current status as the year closed out.


Danielle Brooks, 30, is beginning 2020 with joy and happiness after getting engaged to boyfriend Dennis Gelin, with whom she recently welcomed a baby.

On Tuesday night or New Year's Eve, Brooks shared a sweet photo as well as a video showing the pair dancing the night away in sweet bliss. The post is found below.

New Year's Eve engagement

In the shot, the actress looked up with pure admiration at her new fiancé, who stood with his back to the camera as he held onto his wife. Brooks' engagement ring could be spotted on her finger.

Behind them, gold decor littered a hall — an appropriate selection to ring in the new year. Many women, including Brooks, wore red, probably as part of a dress code.


A romantic dance


The second slide showed a romantic video of Brooks and her partner of two years sharing a dance. They exchanged some words between them and a couple nearby as they embraced.

In the caption, Brooks explained how she never expected the proposal to be on New Year's Eve. "I get to marry my best friend. We're ENGAGED!!" she continued in part.


Brooks welcomes firstborn

The "Orange Is the New Black" star shares a one-month-old daughter who was born on November 16 with Gelin. Brooks shared the first photos of her newborn a couple of days after giving birth.

"She's perfect," she wrote at the time. The news came four months after the actress announced her pregnancy by showing a positive pregnancy test to her followers online.


Her husband's contractions

In another shot, she displayed her pregnancy belly while wearing some black lingerie. "Still in awe," she captioned it. She has not yet revealed her daughter's name.

Not long before giving birth, Brooks and her husband shared a hilarious event that saw Gelin experience contractions pain through a simulator. They did it for Netflix's "A Little Bit Pregnant."

Brooks had supplied her mate with some water and a pillow. While Gelin once said he could take pain, the former football player only endured two minutes of the device's simulation. Poor guy.
