Actress Yvonne Orji, who plays Molly on the hit HBO show Insecure, finally has a man. MTO News has confirmed that Yvonnie is dating a fellow Nigerian and NFL player Emmanuel Acho.
Yvonnie, who is 31, is a very devout Christian - and has spoken out openly about being a virgin. Yvonne claims that she is saving herself for her marriage. She recently told People magazine:
“Before any of [the fame] happened, I sat down with myself and with God and thought, when I make it, how do you want me to represent you while I’m here?” The HBO star says she answered her own question: “It was like, OK, I know why I’m here. It’s to make you proud.”
Orji says she’s always more than willing to explain her decision to anyone who inquires.
“People ask about it because they’re curious, or they may not understand,” she says. “How will they ever get understand if I don’t talk about it? I can inform your curiosity, as opposed to everyone being in the dark and just sort of creating their own narrative about it.”
Here are some pics of the two together:
BET also had a report about Yvonne's new love:
The actress recently took to her Instagram page where she shared an adorable photo of her cozied up with American soccer star Emmanuel Acho. While some may think the photo may be somewhat platonic, the accompanying caption showed that this is definitely a love story in the making.
"Jesus out here answering prayers on a Sunday," she wrote.
Proving that their relationship is fully Instagram official, Acho followed suit, posting another picture from the same evening with the caption, "'[They] laugh at the days ahead' Proverbs 31:25."
