True Blood’s Rutina Wesley has come out in a series of Instagram posts.

Then, over the weekend, the actress uploaded a gallery of pictures of them both, which finished with what looks like a sparkling engagement ring.

It was accompanied with a “I said yes” hashtag, along with “she feeds my soul” and “love of my life you are my friend”.

It seems like a massive congratulations is in order.

The 38-year-old was previously married to actor Jacob Fishel from 2005 to 2013.

Since starring in True Blood, Rutina has gone on to appear in Arrow, Hannibal, Queen Sugar, and The Cleveland Show.
