It has come to light that Gabourey Sidibe has been even busier than previously thought since the outbreak began.
Oscar-nominated actress got engaged and married her longtime partner Brandon Frankel in secret more than a year ago.
On Monday’s episode of “Live with Kelly and Ryan,” actress Gabourey Sidibe dropped some “breaking news” during a spirited discussion. During the conversation, Sidibe spoke up about her recent marriage to Brandon Frankel, including the specifics of their December 2020 engagement and their March 2021 wedding.
“So, the thing about weddings is I don’t like them,” she explained.
This is just one more reason why I hate weddings. I recently got married. It’s been nearly a year since we said “I do.”
Ripa turned to Frankel in the audience and inquired if it was the case. Spouse of Sidibe nodded and displayed wedding band in response.
Sidibe responded affirmatively to Ripa’s question about whether or not her marriage constituted “breaking news,” and then revealed that she and Frankel had eloped to “be married at the kitchen table,” with only the two of them present.
When did they first start dating each other?
On the Raya dating app, which is exclusively available to paying members, Brandon decided to take a chance and swiped right on Sidibe. Brandon claims that the duration of the first date was more than seven hours.
He asked her to marry him using one of their cats that was wearing a charm that read, “Will you marry my daddy?”
