Actress Gabourey Sidibe wrote the sweetest message to her long-time boyfriend and now fiancé Brandon Frankel for Valentine's Day on her Instagram feed two days ago.


Gabourey Sidibe penned a loving tribute to her fiancé Brandon Frankel on Instagram on February 14 with an adorable selfie of the couple posted holding each other.

Sidibe shared a delightful picture with her soon-to-be husband on Instagram in recognition of their extraordinary relationship together and for their future adventures as a married couple.

Sidibe is wearing a red patterned lace top, obviously in recognition of V-Day, and her partner is dressed in black. With their heads pressed closely together and their smiling faces, Sidibe and Frankel's love is transparent.

Frankel has his arm around Sidibe, and they seem intensely happy. The picture received over 60 thousand likes, but it was Sidibe's truly stirring caption that awed fans. She wrote:

"...I’m so lucky to have found you just in time for the coming apocalypse."


Sidibe proclaimed that she decided to be less submissive to men, which resulted in her meeting her life's love. It was her rejection of patriarchal standards that enhanced her confidence as a woman.

Sidibe said deciding to be less accommodating towards men was something that she did for herself. Opportunely, she met Frankel shortly after this personal resolution.

It is less common knowledge that Sidibe battled with the eating disorder bulimia.


The couple began dating in 2019 and have recently announced their engagement with the public. They have two cats together, which frequently feature in their social media posts.

Sidibe and Frankel spent quarantine and the festive season together, sharing their holiday celebrations with their fans on Instagram. When they privileged fans with their special news, Sidibe wrote:

"It’s weird that people think we’re already married but I guess our hearts and intentions for each other are just that clear to see."


Although Sidibe is famously known for her acting roles in movies like "Precious," "Antebellum," and series such as "Empire," it is less common knowledge that Sidibe battled with the eating disorder bulimia.

Sidibe addressed her weight challenges in her autobiography "This Is Just My Face: Try Not to Stare," published in 2017. Sidibe suffered from depression and would deliberately throw up to prevent herself from crying.

Sidibe admitted that her bulimia was not rooted in a desire to lose weight or to regulate her appetite but instead as a way to make her feel more in control of her emotional well-being.

The Oscar nominee also confessed that her sadness had resulted in her having several suicidal thoughts but that she sought professional help by seeing a therapist.
