AceShowbiz - Gabourey Sidibe made a bombshell revelation during her appearance on "Live with Kelly and Ryan". While stopping by the talk show on Monday, December 5, the "Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire" star shockingly revealed that she and Brandon Frankel have been married for over a year.
Gabourey claimed that they tied the knot quietly back in 2021, just a few months after announcing their engagement. In the episode, the 39-year-old went on to share why she kept the news of her nuptials under wraps until now.
"The thing about weddings is I don't like them," Gabourey opened up. "Here's an example of how much I don't like them-I'm actually married. We got married over a year ago."
As host Kelly Ripa was confused by the remarks, the "American Horror Story" alum confirmed she and Brandon had gotten married "at the kitchen table" months after his proposal. "I really don't like weddings," Gabourey reiterated.
Following Gabourey's announcement, Brandon took to his Instagram page to share a sweet message addressing the big news. Alongside a picture of the couple showing off their rings during their casual kitchen nuptials as well as a snap of their flowers and cupcakes from the big day, Brandon wrote, "SURPRISE!"
"I can finally call her my WIFE publicly! Since @gabby3shabby finally spilled the beans today on Live with Kelly and Ryan- we've been MARRIED since March '21!" he continued. "Relieved we can finally tell the world. So thankful to have found my forever person, my partner-in-crime, and the love of my life."
Brandon concluded, "Every day is the best day with you. Nobody I would rather raise cats with and be in bed by a smooth 8pm with. Love you forever."
Gabourey announced their engagement in November 2020. "It's weird that people think we're already married but I guess our hearts and intentions for each other are just that clear to see. My BFF proposed and now I get to hold him forever," she wrote at the time, while showing off her engagement ring.
She sang praise for her fiance, "The funniest man I've ever met. The sweetest human to exist. @brandontour made up a song for when i put my bonnet on at night. The second I look a bit stressed and overwhelmed, he jumps into action to take over what he can for me. Every moment with him is a joy. He is the partner i thought I was too independent to need."
