Congrats you, jailbirds… uh, we mean love birds!
That's right, Lea Delaria, the actress who plays Big Boo on Orange is the New Black, is officially going to get hitched to her own boo, Chelsea Fairless!
When did the proposal go down? Oh, just right after Lea won a SAG Award as part of OITNB's ensemble cast!
Here's how Lea described that night:
"We met through Orange. Her dear friend plays Leanne on the show. She introduced us and we've been together ever since. It's been two and a half years. I proposed to her. Everyone saw how emotional I was at the SAG awards. I was so filled with love. I turned to her at the Netflix party that night and asked her to marry me. We announced it to all of our friends there. We've keep it pretty hush-hush ever since. But I announced it onstage last night at Lincoln Center."
On top of that, this newly engaged couple already has some pretty epic wedding plans:
"We definitely have a few ideas. Sandra Bernhardt will be marrying us. She's a very close friend and she's an officiant. We called her right away. And Jesse Tyler Ferguson will be my best man. We go way back. We want to do it in the summer so my entire cast can be thereBut there's not enough time to get everything together for this summer. We're thinking July 2016. We want a nice long, romantic engagement."
Awww! We wish nothing but the best for these two!
