Gabourey Sidibe was all about her lover, Brandon Frankel, in new social media show-offs as she commemorated National Boyfriend's Day and celebrated him.


Gabourey Sidibe's National Boyfriend's Day was dedicated to her love interest, Bradon Frankel, who she referred to as her favorite person. On Sidibe's Instagram story, she shared a romantic snapshot of her and her man getting cozy.

The sweet selfie had the lovers posing in the dark as Frankel soulfully placed his face close to Sidibe's. The "Precious" actress had a warming smile on her face.

The witty actress' write up ended goofily as she thanked her lover for leaving his "wife," "four kids," and "nine grandchildren" for her. She started her caption with:

"Happy #nationalboyfriendday to @brandontour, who is the only person allowed to tickle me."


The hearty love note did not go unnoticed as the recipient shared a screenshot of his girlfriend's post on his own Instagram story.

Right before [Sidibe] loved up, she vowed not to give men attention or conform to the standards that many men and society put out to women.

Frankel added more aesthetics as he circled his and Sidibe's image with a heart scribble while letting her know that they were better together. Early in the year, the pair sent fans gushing after ushering in the new year with some mushy love posts on social media.

Frankel, a creative artist, posted romantic photos of him and his sweetheart in twinning hoodies and smiling for the camera. His caption was a lengthy appreciation write-up addressing his loved ones and Sidibe, especially for her time and love. He poured out his heart in the caption which partly read:

"for this queen right here. You're a ball of sunshine, so generous and giving of your time…"

Frankel wrote about how Sidibe was helpful in the previous year while adding that he continues to fall in love with her. Soon enough, the "Empire" actress joined the interaction and fawned over him in the comments.

Right before the award-winning actress loved up, she vowed not to give men attention or conform to the standards that many men and society put out to women. Not long after, she found herself falling for the branding expert who is always about her.

Speaking about her new movie, "Antebellum" which she starred in alongside Janelle Monae, the 36-year-old mentioned that it was the right time to release the horror-thriller centered around slavery.

She believes that slavery is not so much a thing of the past as people still had fresh memories. The "Tower Heist" actress mentioned that it needed to be talked about.
