Actress Rutina Wesley gushed over her relationship with New Orleans-based Chef Shonda in a series of emotional Instagram posts.
Wesley, 38, has never made an official coming out announcement but has made it clear she is in a happy relationship with Shonda. The actress has frequently posted photos of the two of them on Instagram as well as romantic quotes.
Over the weekend Wesley posted an Instagram gallery that starts with a quote that reads, “Overthinking is the biggest cause of our unhappiness. Keep yourself occupied. Keep your mind off things that don’t help you.”
The gallery features photos of Shonda and Wesley ending with a shot of an engagement ring.
“#AlwaysMORENeverLESSISaidYES,” Wesley captioned the post. “She feeds my soul, I was looking at her and found my joy, @chef_shonda I love you more than words.”
