American actress Gabby Sidibe posted a cute picture of her boyfriend Brandon Frankel looking after their cat while getting some work done on his computer.


In a recent post, Gabby Sidibe gave us a glimpse into the cuteness that is her life. The photo featured her boyfriend Brandon Frankel babysitting their cat while at work. The cat looked very comfortable curled into a ball on his chest, and they seemed like the best of friends.

Sidibe is perhaps most well known for her role in the 2009 film "Precious." That role earned her the Independent Spirit Award for Best Female Lead and nominations for the Golden Globe and Academy Award for Best Actress.

Frankel, according to his Instagram bio, works in entertainment, marketing, and branding. He definitely has what it takes because in 2017 Billboard named him one of their branding power players.

Frankel has traveled far and wide for his clients in the pursuit of branding opportunities. He is also a big fan of cats which is a common interest for the couple. He takes his cats very seriously because, in one Instagram post, he shared a tribute to his cat, calling her his daughter.

After the actress opened up about her weight loss surgery, she declared that she was ready to start dating. During an interview with People in 2017, Sidibe said she realized that every person she knew was either a woman or gay man and that neither of those two was going to marry her, that being the ultimate goal.


Speculations about whether Sidibe and Frankel were in a relationship started making the rounds last year after he posted a picture of the "Empire" star to Instagram and called her his "sunshine." 

Frankel has been quite open about their relationship which was reportedly in existence since at least May 2019. While he regularly posts photos of himself and Sidibe, the actress is known to offer glimpses into their romance now and then on social media.

At the beginning of the year, the couple ushered in the new year with Frankel posting a loving year-end tribute to Sidibe. He didn't hold back anything while showing off his love for her.

The heartwarming Instagram post included previously unseen pictures of the couple that was only a reminder that the duo is in it for the long haul.
