Issa Rae is officially off the market. In a sarcastic Instagram post on Monday, the Insecure creator and star revealed she had married her longtime boyfriend Louis Diame over the weekend.

“A) Impromptu photo shoot in a custom @verawanggang dress. B) My girls came to help me, but they all coincidentally had on the same dress! They were sooooo embarrassed. C) Then I took a few flicks with Somebody’s Husband,” Issa joked in the caption of her post, which included a series photos from her destination wedding in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, a commune in the South of France.

“Big thanks to @whiteedenweddings for being so gracious and accommodating and making this feel so real and special,” she added.

Rae’s marriage to Diame may come as a surprise to some of her fans. The couple has been known to keep their relationship out of the spotlight, though the Senegalese businessman has occasionally joined the actress on several red carpets over the years.

Rumors of their engagement first surfaced when Rae was spotted wearing a diamond ring in the cover photo of Essence magazine’s April 2019 issue. It was later confirmed by her Insecure costars Jay Ellisand Yvonne Orji that Issa and Louis were indeed together and planning to wed.

“We’re very excited for her,” Orji told Entertainment Tonight at the time, with Ellis adding, “We all found out in different ways because we’re all on different text chains. We talk at different times, so we all found out at different times in different ways.”
