Is Issa Rae married?

While Issa's on-screen personas are often dealing with a variety of relationship issues, in real life, it seems like this writer/producer/actress has it all figured out.

While Issa is notoriously private about her personal life and spoke little of her personal relationships, it appeared that the cat came out of the bag in April 2019, when she was seen wearing a massive diamond ring on her left hand for her cover story in Essence.

Now, Issa and Louis have tied the knot. The two were married in a private ceremony on July 25, 2021. The actress shared the news through Instagram with snapshots of her custom Vera Wang gown and gorgeous venue.

"A) Impromptu photo shoot in a custom @verawanggang dress. B) My girls came to help me, but they all coincidentally had on the same dress! They were sooooo embarrassed. C) Then I took a few flicks with Somebody's Husband," she sarcastically captioned the post. "Big thanks to @whiteedenweddings for being so gracious and accommodating and making this feel so real and special."

And while Issa is happy to get candid about other aspects of her life, her relationship status has been one topic she's never been keen to broach in public. Why?

"I don't want any input," she said in an interview with Vogue in 2018. "As a writer, you put everything on the table. I'll take input on kids if I'm going to have kids. How do I not kill the kids? Work? Give me the input. Any other aspect of my life? Give me the input. But who I'm f--king? No, I don't need input. I'm good."
