Issa Rae has been hiding a very big secret.
There’s a big chance that the co-creator and star of Insecure are engaged. News of the engagement first started to circulate when she appeared to do a shoot with Essence magazine. Fans noticed that in addition to her many stunning looks, the actress was also sporting a diamond ring…on her ring finger.
However, when asked about the possibility of a wedding, Rae has made no comments. Instead, she’s been very coy about the situation.

Four years ago, when all I had was a web series and a book, @Essence put me on my first cover with four incredible women I look up to: Ava, Mara, Shonda and Ms. Debbie. It was their "Game Changers" issue and I kept thinking, "I can't believe they chose me." That cover meant so much to me because it validated my work on a platform I respected AND it was a nurturing recognition of promise, a promise that I didn't necessarily see in myself at the time. Four years later — entering the fourth season of my TV show, and shooting my fourth movie in New York — they honored me with this solo cover. Thank you, Essence, for helping me to deliver on that promise you saw years ago, and changing the game for me. 📸: @itayshaphoto Hair: @lovingyourhair Face: @joannasimkin Fits: @jasonrembert
It wasn’t until the NAACP event that her engagement got the confirmation, by co-stars, Jay Ellis, and Yvonne Orji. “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,” Ellis said.
Issa was also in attendance that event too, and yes…the ring was on her finger there as well. So it seems like the news could very well be true.
If so, her fiance is most likely Louis Diame, her longtime boyfriend, reports Page Six.
