By now I’m sure you’re all aware that actress, writer, director, producer, and overall powerhouse, Issa Rae, is a whole wife. But in case you missed the news, Issa Rae blew up the internet in July 2021 when she announced her marriage to Louis Diame on social media. The news came two years after initial engagement rumors began circulating following Rae’s appearance on the April cover of Essence. On the cover, Rae is seen sporting a diamond on her ring finger. 

While fans were convinced that the 6-time Emmy-nominated star was engaged, Rae herself refused to confirm the rumors and often found ways to deflect the attention. During an April 1 appearance on The View, Rae affirmed that a ring doesn’t necessarily mean an engagement.

“I have a lot of rings on my fingers,” she said.

On HBO’s Insecure, fans can watch all the intimate relationship drama play out for Rae’s character Issa Dee, but in reality, Rae’s love life is not for public consumption. In an interview with Vogue Rae stated, “I don’t want any input. As a writer, you put everything on the table. I’ll take input on kids if I’m going to have kids. How do I not kill the kids? Work? Give me the input. Any other aspect of my life? Give me the input. But who I’m f**king? No, I don’t need input. I’m good.”

Issa Rae likes to keep her personal life on a need-to-know bases—and ultimately we don’t need to know. But in case you’re curious here are a few tidbits of information we could gather about the marital couple.
