Danielle Brooks is engaged!

The Orange Is the New Black star shared the special news on Instagram on New Year’s Eve, just over a month after she welcomed her first child. Brooks, 30, has kept the identity of her new fiancé largely private, but multiple outlets have identified him as Dennis Gelin.

“I never thought one of the best days of my year would happen the last week of the year,” the actress captioned her Instagram post. “I get to marry my best friend. We’re ENGAGED!! So excited to become your wife. D&D until the end. ??🥂”

In the Instagram photo, Brooks, wearing a glamorous red dress, smiles up at her fiancé with her arms around his shoulders, showing off her engagement ring. The post also included a sweet video of the newly-engaged couple sharing a slow dance.

Many of Brooks’ famous friends wrote loving comments on her post, including Gabrielle Union, who left a slew of red heart emojis, and Octavia Spencer, who wrote “Congratulations.”
