Yvonne Orji, 34, plays Molly Carter on the hit HBO comedy, Insecure. Her character is a successful woman, living in Los Angeles, trying to balance work with finding love in one of the hardest cities to make it in. But art has been imitating life for the star, who when asked by the Los Angeles Times what dating in LA is like for her as Yvonne, not Molly, joked, “Ha! The end, put a period on it. You know, I hear it works really well for some people, and I’m so happy for those folks [Laughs].”
But the good news is, things have worked out well for the star in LA after all. She just had to find someone from outside of the city.
The beauty introduced fans to her new beau on social media on Sunday with the caption, “Jesus out here answering prayers on a Sunday.” The handsome fella’s name is Emmanuel Acho, and he grew up in Dallas:
He seconded her announcement on his own page, with a Biblical verse from Proverbs about strong, noble women:
Cute pair, right?
It’s unclear how long they’ve been dating, but they sure do look cozy (and have the perfect teeth). Orji, who has spoken openly about being a proud virgin until marriage, hasn’t said much else about her new boo, but we’ve been able to learn a few things about Acho by doing our own digging. He’s quite the catch.
There’s a teeny age difference.
Acho is 27, while Orji is 34. But there are perks to dating a younger man. Studies have found that women who date younger often have higher success rates when it comes to their professional ventures. Could a leading lady role in a film be on the way for sis sooner than later?
