Congratulations are in order for Orange Is the New Black star Samira Wiley! She married her girlfriend Lauren Morelli in Palm Springs California this weekend in an exclusive from Martha Stewart Weddings .
The pair met on the set of the hit Netflix show. Morelli, who is also a writer on the show divorced her husband of two years when she realized she was gay. In an interview with Out Magazine Wiley spoke about the moment Morelli asked for her hand in marriage:
“I was completely shocked. I was crying uncontrollably and kept backing away from her. I asked her after, “Who knows about this?” and she said, “Oh, everyone. Your parents know.” We didn’t tell anyone else for a few days. That was really important to us — to have some time where it was just ours.”
Congratulations to the newlyweds!
