American actress, Gabourey Sidibe shocks fans with an unexpected revelation of her long-standing relationship with beau, Brandon Frankel.


Actress, Gabourey Sidibe, has been off the singles' list for a while but has somehow kept the juicy details a secret until it came out in the open earlier this month.

The thirty-six-year-old has been in a relationship with a budding entertainer, Brandon Frankel, and going by the lucky beau's Instagram posts, the romance tale has been on as far back as May 2019.

Although the "Precious" star has previously hinted that she is taken, it was not until the New year's eve that fans were gifted with the whole gist, or at least part, after Frankel tagged her in a New Year's post, prompting a reply from the actress. As part of a lengthy tribute to her, he wrote:


"I love you more and more every single day, which seems impossible, but continually amazes me. Here's to 2020, and thank you for loving me so unconditionally. I love being your forever, Dork."

The lengthy caption was accompanied by a series of four pictures, showing the 36-year-old and her boyfriend, share romantic moments together, with the mystery beau referring to her as his QUEEN.



Getting the star tagged on the post did the trick, as fans soon discovered the social media profile of Gabourey's mystery man, flooded with photos of the lovebirds enjoying several PDA moments, a confirmation that the mystery lover has been hiding in plain sight.

According to his Instagram bio, Frankel works in the entertainment industry and he's also into marketing and branding. He is also active on the 'gram, sharing photos of himself, as well as months worth of pictures summarizing his relationship with "his favorite person in the world."



If the heartwarming pictures of the pair were not convincing enough, the 36-year old's reaction to the new year post hit the nail on the head. She gushed:

"You're my favorite love song. You're the cherry on top of this last decade, and the foundation of the next. I'm excited for all the matching hoodies, Mickie/Minnie outfits to Disneyland, and your favorite shirts that somehow become my favorite shirts too."

She surmised the dreamy details of their love life before expressing how glad she was to have met him, as well as how much happiness having him in her life brought her.



The revelation of Gabourey Sidibe's dating status is one of the many uplifting experiences the Hollywood personality has faced in the last decade.

In 2016, the star experienced a significant breakthrough, shedding several pounds following laparoscopic bariatric surgery to reduce her belly fat. The transformation left fans in awe of the "Empire" star's stunning new look, with most commending her for it.

However, the 36-year-old was alerted to the compliments. She revealed in an interview that it was annoying to have people compliment her on her weight loss, as it was no one's business but hers.

The star's self-improvement journey has paid off, landing her a successful love life, devoid of the influence of other people's opinions.
