Issa Rae Ties the Knot With Longtime Partner Louis Diame

Issa Rae married her longtime partner Louis Diame in a fabulous wedding in South France over the weekend. The Insecure star took to Instagram to share the news, posting pictures of her in a custom Vera Wang Dress with Diame in a red Dolce & Gabbana suit.

“A) Impromptu photoshoot in a custom @verawanggang dress. B) My girls came to help me, but they all coincidentally had on the same dress! Tehy we sooooo embarrassed. C) Then I took a few flicks with Somebody’s Husband,” Rae shared in the post’s caption. “Big thanks to @whiteedenweddings for being so gracious and accommodating and making this feel so real and special.”

The newlyweds had always kept their relationship out of the spotlight, but rumors of their engagement date all the way back to 2019 when Rae wore a diamond ring on the April edition of Essence.

Their engagement was confirmed by her friends and co-stars Jay Ellis and Yvonne Orji that same year at the NAACP Image Awards.

Fellow celebrities and fans didn’t take long to share their support for the actress and her new partner. Kelly McCreary commented “ISSAAAA OMG!!! Congratulations!!!!!!! You are an absolute vision!!!! So so so overjoyed for you!!!!”

“You’re always stunning, but that picture of you with that lady’s husband has the most glow. Congrats!” Wrote Ashley Nicole Black. Rae’s makeup artist Joanna Simkin who attended the event commented, “Love you two so much. The most magical day, and so honored to witness all of the beauty and love. You two are the most beautiful.”
