In December, Sidibe revealed on Live with Kelly and Ryan Monday that she married Frankel, who was in the studio audience during the talk show appearance.

After detailing the proposal story (they got engaged in November 2020 after meeting each other on a dating app), Sidibe explained, "The thing about weddings is I don't like them. I don't like them. Here's an example of how much I don't like them: I'm actually married. We got married over a year ago."

When hosts Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest said they were "confused" and asked if this was "breaking news," Sidibe said yes and added that they tied the knot "at the kitchen table" about four months after their engagement.

"I really don't like weddings," she said.

When she announced their engagement back in November 2020, Sidibe wrote on Instagram that it was "weird" how "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 American Horror Story actress added at the time. "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."

She said, "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!!!"
