This Is Us star Susan Kelechi Watson is engaged to boyfriend Jaime Lincoln Smith!
The actress shared the exciting news via Instagram on Saturday. Watson appears to be over-the-moon in the photo and she also showed off her unique new accessory: a cushion-cut sapphire on a diamond band. "Forever Ever...💍👸🏽🤴🏾💎 'They'll say its love/And they'll know its love/For when they call its name/it will answer to love/Without hesitation' ~me," she captioned the post.
After Watson posted the news, fans and fellow celebrities including Mahershala Ali, Chrishell Hartley, and This Is Us co-star Mandy Moore were quick to congratulate her. Moore wrote, "💗💗💗💗💗💗 so happy for you guys, Su!!!!!" while Ali left a string of celebratory emojis.
According to E! News, the proposal went down at Wayfarers Chapel in Rancho Palos Verdes. The outlet also spoke to Moore at New York Fashion Week, who revealed that Watson has been engaged for a while now. "We've known for a little bit," she revealed. "It didn't happen today but I'm so excited for her and her fiancé! I can't wait to hopefully score an invite to the wedding!"
While we aren't sure how long Watson and her fiancé have been together—they've kept their relationship very private—they have been spotted on the red carpet together in the past. Like Watson, Smith is also an actor who has most recently starred in New Amsterdam, NCIS: New Orleans and Blue Bloods.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
