Actors Ryan Destiny & Keith Powers have been one of Hollywood’s hottest couples since they were first linked back in 2015. The pair met at a Teen Vogue party and connected via Instagram, and their love has been a fairytale romance since.

The duo has quickly become one of the modern day examples of Black love, an honor they both take very seriously.

“I realized I was in love when I knew my life would be extremely affected in a negative way if Ryan wasn’t in it,” the What/If star said of his love in the new cover story of We The Urban.

“Loving someone is a very natural feeling that just happens. You can’t just wake up and SAY I love this person, you FEEL it. You realize like wow, this person is a piece of me and regardless you don’t ever want that person out of your life.”

Continuing,  “I also felt myself growing as a person when Ryan came into my life, especially mentally. And I realized that I’m ready to deal with anything I have to deal with alongside Ryan. Once I felt that, I knew.”

Ryan expounded on what Black love means to her by reflecting on what she saw in her own family.

“For me, it’s my parents. It’s a lot of the people in my family. In our history. Its black families. It’s black children. It’s the support we have for one another. I think one of the most important illustrations we can see is us loving us. There are people that don’t want to see that. And sadly, we know that sometimes a few of our own can’t even see that because of how they grew up being taught something different. As if we are less and that there are others that are superior. I hope we exemplify how worthy each of us are of being loved. I hope we exemplify how hard we can love one another. In a healthy way.
