Blair Underwood and actress Josie Hart are engaged after 41 years of friendship.
The “Sex and the City” alum announced the exciting news on Instagram after walking the red carpet together for the first time as a couple.
“The most amazing, brilliant, beautiful, hilarious, thought provoking & insightful person I know who continuously lives life out-loud,” the actor captioned a picture of the two. “The future is crazy-bright Girl!”
The 48-year-old continued, “None of us ever know where God will guide our paths. She’s had my back since before I even became an actor. When a 41 year friendship slaps you in the back of the head & blossoms into romance, you stand up, pay attention & step forward in gratitude.”
Although it’s unclear how long the two have been dating, Underwood’s famous friends were quick to wish the happy couple well.
“Congrats, friend!,” Yvette Nicole Brown commented, while Niecy Nash added, “Issa fiancé 💍💍💍.”
“Somebody call 9-1-1 – my breathing is laboured and I can’t feel my heart beat anymore,” Sherrie Shepherd joked. “okay I revived myself! Congrats Blair and Josie – glad you got someone in your corner❤️.”
The former couple — who share sons Paris, 25, and Blake, 21, and daughter Brielle, 23 — announced their split in May 2021, saying that while their marriage didn’t last their “proudest achievements are our three incredible children.”
