Gabourey Sidibe and her fiancé Brandon Frankel recently got engaged. Here is a look into their daily routine and the fun activities they love to engage in together.


Love is a beautiful thing. Finding the right person is not easy, but once they come around, things begin to fall in place naturally. This is evident in the love life of "Empire" actress Gabourey Sidibe and her fiancé Brandon Frankel.

Since last year, the two have been together, and recently, they got engaged, with Frankel popping the question. Lovers of the couple know how much they dote on each other. Here is a peek into their lives.

One interesting thing about Frankel and Sidibe is that they are animal lovers. The two never fail to share images of themselves with their cats, one of which is named Aaron.

The pair enjoy having their pets around, and one time Sidibe shared an interesting video of them welcoming a dog they did not know. She explained:

"Staying at an AirBNB and the owners live next door, and their dog just walked in through the doggy door to come chill. 10 outta 10 stars."


Aside from Aaron, they have another cat named Peaches. While Aaron belongs to Sidibe, Peaches belongs to Frankel, and they try to ensure that both cats get along. A few months back, they added another feline to their brood named Jarel.


Frankel and Sidibe have a dashing sense of humor, which they often display. During Father's Day, Sidibe took to Instagram to wish Frankel a "Happy Father's Day," from their cats Aaron and Peaches. She shared a picture of him in the kitchen making eggs and complimented him for his culinary skills.



Another interesting detail about the lovebirds is that they enjoy spending time together. Be it cooking in the kitchen together or going on dinner dates, Sidibe and Frankel never seem to run out of fun activities to do.

Interestingly, at the time she met Frankel, she explained that she was at a point in her life where she was not going to take care of men again.


The cat lovers usually enjoy their laidback weekends by spending time together in bed and playing with their cats. Frankel once shared a picture of himself and Sidibe on a Sunday and captioned it saying:

"This is a typical Sunday...my happy place ?."


Similarly, Sidibe once posted a clip of Frankel lying lazily in bed and gently stroking their cat's belly. She revealed that their weekends often include "a Lil bita cat fa the weekend [sic]."


Following her weight loss surgery in 2017, Sidibe intimated that she was ready to begin dating, but that did not happen until 2019.

Interestingly, at the time she met Frankel, she explained that she was at a point in her life where she was not going to take care of men again. Well, it seems she made the right choice, and Frankel is willing to take care of his future bride till the oceans dry out.
