Samira Wiley may have recently checked out of Litchfield, but Orange Is the New Black will still play a central role in her life, as the actress is now engaged to series writer Lauren Morelli, who she had been dating since 2014.

The pair announced the happy news on Instagram, posting a gorgeous photo of the happy couple smiling from ear to ear and Wiley sporting a shiny engagement ring.

Samira captioned the image with a simple, “Yes”.

Yes.

The pair fell in love on the set of the Netflix hit after Lauren split amicably from her husband of two years Steve Basilone.

Lauren says she realised she was gay on the set of OINTB after being peppered with questions from cast members about her marriage.

I was finally forced to consider a question that had never, ever occurred to me before: ‘Holy s–t, am I gay?’” she said.

We wish them all the happiness in the world!
