Sidibe also acknowledged her fiancé on her own Instagram page where she shared a photo of herself wearing a bright red top while posing with Frankel. The couple's affection radiated through the photo.
In her caption, the "Empire" actress said she was grateful to have found Frankel "just in time for the coming apocalypse." The couple's evolving relationship is documented in many pics and videos dating back to May 2019.
Sidibe admitted that she met her fiancé at a time when she had made a pretty drastic decision regarding relationships. The actress had decided that she would no longer be accommodating to men.
Sidibe is focused on changing the narrative around Black women so they can be seen as human and not unbreakable.
However, shortly after that decision, she met Frankel who changed the way she looked at herself, her relationships, and men. In no time, the pair became best friends and lovers, sharing unforgettable moments together.
Throughout 2020, Sidibe and Frankel were inseparable causing fans worldwide to believe they were already married but Frankel only proposed in November 2020.
Both he and Sidibe were over the moon about the engagement and they took to their Instagram pages to share the exciting news. Frankel popped the question with the help of their cat and a beautiful display of balloons and rose petals.
Aside from her engagement to Frankel, Sidibe's 2020 ended on a high note with the success of her horror film, "Antebellum," which gave her the opportunity to star next to like-minded actresses like Janelle Monáe Robinson.
Robinson is known for her unique style that challenges stereotypes, especially when it comes to Black women. Similarly, Sidibe is focused on changing the narrative around Black women so they can be seen as human and not unbreakable.
