Orange Is the New Black‘s Samira Wiley revealed her ‘magical’ proposal from her girlfriend. 

The 29-year-old actress told the new issue of Out Magazine that she cried uncontrollably when Lauren Morelli – a writer on the show – popped the question. 

‘She pulled a ring from behind the couch…I was completely shocked,’ she told the publication. 


Popped question: Samira and Lauren announced their engagement on social media in October, with Wiley showing off her engagement ring – a sparkling squared-shaped stone on a delicate gold band

She added: ‘I was crying uncontrollably and kept backing away from her…We didn’t tell anyone else for a few days. That was really important to us — to have some time where it was just ours.’

The couple were preparing for a romantic weekend trip to Palm Springs, California, but Morelli got down on one knee at their Los Angeles home first.

Morelli revealed to the publication that she had the whole thing planned out. 

‘I found a ring, they shipped it to me.  I was so nervous and terrified she knew it was coming, but she was so shocked that I couldn’t get her to stop crying.

‘She was hyperventilating. I thought, “Oh, this is not good.”  She was very clear she’d wait for me to be ready, so to give her something I knew she wanted so much was incredible.

‘It was the most magical day of my life’. 


Met at work: Samira – who plays Poussey Washington in the Netflix original series Orange Is the New Black, and writer-on-the-show Lauren began dating in 2014

Lauren also told Out that she found writing her girlfriend out of the series to be particularly emotional. 

‘Being able to write words for someone as talented as she is, watch her perform what I write, and then go to bed with her is the best thing,’ she told them. 

‘I was obviously honored to write the episode in which Poussey is killed,’ she explained, adding: ‘When I sat down to write that scene and typed the part when she dies, I just started sobbing. I called Samira sobbing so hard that I couldn’t get the words out. I’d never had the experience of not only killing a character, but killing a character played by my girlfriend.’
