Not only did Issa have a pronounced baby bump - but according to one of our insiders, Issa had the pregnancy walk too. The insider explained, "She had the pregnancy waddle. Poor thing was waddling like a penguin all over the theater. She was glowing though and looked great."

Issa, 34, is engaged to longtime boyfriend Louis Diame.

Rae’s Insecure costar Jay Ellis and Issa's real like BFF Yvonne Orji confirmed the news while walking the red carpet at the 2019 NAACP Image Awards last weekend.

“We’re very excited for her,” Orji told Entertainment Tonight ,with Ellis adding, “We all found out in different ways because we’re all on different text chains. We talk at different times, so we all found out at different times in different ways.”

Wait until they learn that she's pregnant now too.
