If you are a fan of the American Drama series “Empire” and the documentary thriller “Precious,” then you know Gabourey Sidibe. The beautiful Oscar Nominee actress took to Instagram to share the joyous news of her pregnancy with her fans and followers. Sidibe’s caption simply began with, “I’m pregnant!” 

The picture posted was of her and her husband, Brandon Frankel, gently holding her growing baby bump. Social media is going agog with excitement and well-wishes for her and her family. “We thought it was time to give our cats some responsibility, so we’re giving them each a baby to care for! Double the babies, double the cats, double the fun!!” she continued. “Twin delivery coming soon! Twinty Twinty Four!!”

She also posted snapshots of her and her husband happily pushing twin strollers and sharing tender moments while looking at each other in the mirror. The couple got married in 2021 after meeting on the dating app Raya in 2019. During an interview with Brides magazine in 2022, Frankel mentioned that their first date lasted “more than seven hours.”

Sidibe admitted that before Frankel entered her life, she wasn’t sure that marriage was something she envisioned for herself. “I couldn’t imagine dating someone I liked. Turns out, totally possible! So, I’m really happy to have been wrong about where I saw my life going, partnership-wise,” she shared with Brides. [Brandon] is an incredible, incredible partner.”
