Fans of True Blood and Queen Sugar star Rutina Wesley got a two for one surprise when the 38-year-old came out and announced her engagement on Instagram (click the right arrows on the post below).

Little is known about Wesley’s fiance, but from what we’ve gathered on social media, Chef Shonda is a culinary artist living in New Orleans.

Over the last month we’ve seen more photos surface of the pair on Wesley’s social media, sparking questions of her sexuality. And rightfully so, as she was previously married to actor Jacob Fishel from 2005 to 2013.
