Orange Is The New Black actress Samira Wiley – aka Poussey – took to Instagram on Tuesday to announce that she’s engaged to the show’s writer Lauren Morelli, who have been dating since 2014.

In the adorable snap, the two women are smiling as Samira shows off her gorgeous sparkler. Naww!

Lauren started working on the show five months after her first wedding – to a man – and revealed in a touching essay for Identities.Mic in 2014 that she only discovered she was gay when she started writing sexual scenes for Piper and Alex’s characters on the show.

“I realized I was gay in fall 2012, one of my first days on the set. It wasn’t so much one thing, but the sum of many small details,” she wrote.

“I went through it all on set: I fell in love with a woman, and I watched my life play out on screen,” she continued.

Congrats guys!
