Coming out isn’t always easy, but True Blood star Rutina Wesley just did it in a way that was full of blissful love — she announced that she’s engaged!
Letting fans in on the big news via Instagram, the 38-year-old posted several photos of herself and her love, Chef Shonda, along with a message saying, “Overthinking is the biggest cause of our unhappiness. Keep yourself occupied. Keep your mind off things that don’t help you. Think positive.”
In the caption, Wesley (whom you’ll remember from the hit HBO series as Tara Thornton) added her own personal take on the heartwarming development, writing, “#OdeToLVAActingExercises LOLITA….Lolita….LIGHT of my LIFE….LIGHT of my LIFE…FIRE of my LOINS… FIRE of my LOINS…MY SIN….My SIN….MY SOUL…My SOUL….The tip of the TONGUE….the tip of the TONGUE….Takes a trip down the PALETTE…. takes a trip down the PALETTE….To tap lightly at THREE….To Tap LIGHTLY At THREE….LO…Lo…LI…Li…TA…Ta #StillRingsTrue #AlwaysMORENeverLESSISaidYES #SheFeedsMySOUL #IWasLookingAtHERAndFoundMyJOY #ImHavingAPrivateParty #LoveOfMyLIFEYouAreMyFriend #AllIHadToDoWasTurnAround @chef_shonda #ILoveYouMoreThanWORDS”
The actress, who currently plays Nova Bordelon on Queen Sugar, also shared a peek at her engagement ring, which confirmed the happy news along with her second hashtag, #AlwaysMORENeverLESSISaidYES.
Wesley posted a pic of herself and her love just a few days ago with the caption, “#FromTheInsideOut You are the sunshine of my life….” While it wasn’t exactly a full-on confirmation of their relationship at the time, it now sounds like these two may have found their happily-ever-after together.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
