Samira Wiley may not have gotten a happy ending in “Orange is the New Black,” but the actress is over-the-moon happy in real life. The 29-year-old recently shared some good news on her Instagram account.
In a recently-uploaded photo, Samira, who plays Poussey on the show, was beaming with a wide smile, showing off a sparkling square cut diamond ring on THAT finger. Beside her is girlfriend Lauren Morelli, the writer and producer of the Netflix hit series “Orange is the New Black.” The photo was captioned with a simple “YES.”
The couple fell in love on the set of the show, and co-stars were able to witness how their love bloomed. Lauren was married to a man, but had a revelation on her sexuality when she was on the show. According to reports, the writer took Samira on a romantic weekend getaway and popped the question there.
