Yara Shahidi Just Helped Her Brother Sayeed Deliver The Sweetest Prom Proposal To Storm Reid
Yara Shahidi sure knows how to multi-task. The Black-ish superstar is wrapping up her first year at Harvard University and a new season of Grown-ish, while also gearing up to promote her starring role in the upcoming feature film, The Sun Is Also A Star.
But in the midst of all of that, she was able to lend a helping hand to her younger brother Sayeed, who obviously has a crush on fellow actress Storm Reid.
“After big sister FaceTime consultations, conversations with his homies and knowing what would make her smile, Sayeed SURPRISED Storm with the CUTEST promposal,” Yara wrote underneath a photo on Instagram, which showed the two in a friendly embrace.
The couple are seen holding a sign which makes a play on Storm’s first name. “Storms are rare in LA, I’m lucky I found one,” it reads.
With all the media attention surrounding these outlandish prom proposals nowadays, we’re guessing that Sayeed felt immense pressure to deliver, in order to get his date-to-be to agree to attend junior prom with him.
Apparently Sayeed is two for two when it comes to securing a date with the Wrinkle In Time actress. In 2017, Sayeed asked Storm to a homecoming dance and she said yes.
She later posted a video to Instagram holding the sign that Sayeed made for her which read, “Storm be my leading lady at hoco?”
“BEST. SURPRISE. EVER. Thank you @sayeedshaidi. #igottafindadress,” Storm wrote as the caption.
Could this be a young love connection in the making? We’ll definitely be keeping our eye out!
