Orange Is the New Black star Samira Wiley is engaged! Her girlfriend of approximately two years, OITNB writer Lauren Morelli, popped the question with a dazzling diamond ring.

The couple announced the news on Instagram with a selfie of themselves beaming while Wiley shows off her new ring — a sparkling squared-shaped stone on a delicate gold band. Wiley simply captioned her post, “Yes.”

The couple began dating in 2014. Morelli was previously married and split from her husband after she realized she was gay while writing for OITNB. She penned an essay on Identities.Mic at the time detailing her experience. “I realized I was gay in fall 2012, one of my first days on the set,” she wrote.

“Accordingly, I was nervous about the first love scene I’d written for Alex and Piper. I loved writing it, loved watching a tenderness emerge in their relationship where passion always seemed to be the ruling principle, but by that time, I was so deep in my own self-doubt that I constantly felt like a fraud,” she explained.

Morelli “whisked” Wiely away for a getaway last weekend, where we suspect she popped the question.
