The pair who have been dating for a while took to their respective Instagram accounts to announce their engagement.
Sharing a video of her and Brandon with her engagement ring on display, Gabourey wrote: “It’s weird that people think we’re already married but I guess our hearts and intentions for each other are just that clear to see.
“My BFF proposed and now I get to hold him forever. The funniest man I’ve ever met. The sweetest human to exist.
“@brandontour made up a song for when i put my bonnet on at night. The second I look a bit stressed and overwhelmed, he jumps into action to take over what he can for me. Every moment with him is a joy. He is the partner i thought I was too independent to need.”
“I’ve learned so much about myself through him and I feel grateful and excited to learn more about the entire world with him by my side. My partner, my best friend, my cats’ daddy, my mans, my heart, my fiancé!!!”
Brandon also shared photos that indicate how he proposed.
In one photo, the couple’s cat is seen wearing a charm reading, “Will you marry my daddy?”
In another, giant balloons spell out, “Will you marry me?” over a bed topped with rose petals.
He captioned the post: “I asked my best friend to marry me, and she said “YES”! So excited to spend the rest of my life with the most amazing, hilarious, beautiful, and inspiring woman I’ve ever known. I couldn’t imagine a life without you. We make the best team, and we make everything fun and memorable. I liked it, so I put a (ring) on it. Love you to the moon and back.”
Below is a video of the couple.
Harry Styles mocks Candace Owens and others who trolled his Vogue cover where he was wearing a dress
Harry Styles has mocked those who trolled his iconic Vogue cover by eating a banana while wearing a frilly suit.
The 25-year-old sparked controversy by wearing dresses in his shoot for Vogue.
One of those who called him out is right-wing pundit Candace Owens who slammed him for wearing a dress and said it was time to “bring back manly men”.
She tweeted at the time: “There is no society that can survive without strong men.
“The East knows this. In the west, the steady feminisation of our men at the same time that Marxism is being taught to our children is not a coincidence. It is an outright attack. Bring back manly men.”
Harry turned their criticisms around by using it as a caption to a post.
In the post shared to Instagram, the singer wore a powder blue blazer over a white frilled shirt, featuring pleated cuffs, and matching trousers.
Harry ate a banana in the picture, shot by Parker Woods for Variety, and captioned it: “Bring back manly men.”
The picture was part of a shoot to accompany Harry’s interview with Variety, in which he also ate a pomegranate and wore a pale pink silk blouse by Gucci and a pearl necklace.
In the interview, the former One Direction star addressed his style choices and took pride in his Vogue shoot, saying: “To not wear something because it’s female’ clothing, you shut out a whole world of great clothes.
“And I think what’s exciting about right now is you can wear what you like. It does’t have to be X or Y. Those lines are becoming more and more blurred.”
Harry is known for his eclectic and androgynous style, and in his Vogue shoot, he wore skirts and dresses as well as traditionally masculine trousers and shirts.
Admitting he always liked dressing up as a child, Harry said: “Clothes are there to have fun with and experiment with and play with. What’s really exciting is that all of these lines are just kind of crumbling away.
“When you take away ‘There’s clothes for men and there’s clothes for women,’ once you remove any barriers, obviously you open up the arena in which you can play. I’ll go in shops sometimes, and I just find myself looking at the women’s clothes thinking they’re amazing.
“It’s like anything—anytime you’re putting barriers up in your own life, you’re just limiting yourself. There’s so much joy to be had in playing with clothes. I’ve never really thought too much about what it means—it just becomes this extended part of creating something.”
Woman who isn’t engaged boasts about finding ‘perfect’ $20 wedding dress
A woman has left people concerned after she boasted online about finding the perfect dress for her big day then admitted she hasn’t met her future husband.
The woman wowed an online wedding group when she gave details about finding the wedding dress of her dreams in an antique shop for just $20.

Facebook users commented after she posted pictures of herself looking wonderful in white. A number of people said they envied her.
But things took a turn after she admitted that she isn’t even engaged even though she has her wedding dress ready.
She came clean after getting some congratulatory messages.
She said she bought the dress in preparation for what might lay ahead, not for any time soon.
She posted: “Thank you for the congratulations! I’m not actually getting married yet, but you know… Someday.”
Someone commented, saying that whoever is dating the woman should “run for the hills.”
One user wrote: “I like the dress for like a simple low budget beach wedding type thing, but to buy a dress without having a wedding planned (or mans for all we know) is odd.”
“Wait…not getting married yet but owns a dress?” questioned another.
One person commented: “Are we just gonna gloss over the fact that she’s not even getting married?”
Another agreed, saying: “This is how you scare away any potential future partner. Man, woman, non binary, all of the above or fluid. Lady, you’re TERRIFYING.”
Disappointed customer shows dress she ordered and what her tailor made
A customer who asked a tailor to make her a dress was left disappointed at what was delivered.
