Actor Trevante Rhodes just proposed to his longtime girlfriend Mara, and she said yes MTO News has confirmed.

Trevante, 29, and Mara, 25, have been dating now for over two years - and the two are clearly in love.

One of the couple's close friends, accidentally announced the couple's engagement yesterday on Instagram. She quickly deleted the post:


Trevante is an actor best known in 2016 for his performance as Chiron in the Academy Award-winning film Moonlight. The  film won the Golden Globe Award for Best Picture – Drama and the Academy Awards for Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay.

Trevante quickly grew a substantial female fan base, specifically of Black women and some of his fans may be upset to learn that Trevante is now off the market.

But it's hard to question Trevante's choice - because Mara is gorgeous. Here are some pics of Mara - who is an international fashion model:
