Although Rae has yet to confirm the news herself, Insecure co-stars and friends Yvonne Orji and Jay Ellis apparently have.
Entertainment Tonight reports the pair gushed over the details on the red carpet of the 50th annual NAACP Image Awards, unaware that Rae hadn't yet spilled the news herself.
"We're very excited for her," Orji told reporters.
Ellis, standing nearby, added, "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."
It’s unclear if Orji or Ellis received some heat from Rae, who was also in attendance at the ceremony, after the reveal, but either way congratulations are in order!
