I am grinning from ear-to-ear as I report two of my faves have made it official!

Anthony Hemingway and Steven Norfleet are engaged to be married after a 4-year relationship.

The award-winning director (“Underground,” “American Crime Story,” “Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G.“) popped the question on Steven’s birthday (June 10) and celebrated both occasions with family and close friends as they sailed the beautiful seas!

Anthony shared the exciting news writing:

Thank you to all our nearest & dearest for being here to celebrate the birth of my best friend. Even those who wanted to be here but couldn’t make it.

Steven Gregory Norfleet…. Happy Birthday babe. I’m glad you’re finally growing up. Lol

I’m incredibly proud of you, of who you are, what you stand for, what you believe & mostly for being a child of God. In our 4 years together, I’ve enjoyed watching you evolve as a human, as a man & as a fine, sexy actor.

This poem by Nikki Giovanni made me think of us & celebrating you today… A POEM OF FRIENDSHIP
We are not lovers
because of the love
we make
but the love
we have

We are not friends
because of the laughs
we spend
but the tears
we save
I don’t want to be near you
for the thoughts we share
but the words we never have
to speak
I will never miss you
because of what we do
but what we are

Thank you for being in my life & helping me be a better man, a better friend & a better lover.

I’m not perfect but I know I worth it!

As the Most High & all of our friends bear witness, one of the best feelings is Love.

Steven Gregory Norfleet…HE SAID YES!!! #AnthonyHemingway

Steven took to social media to add:

My Lord and Savior, when I woke up yesterday asking for a great birthday, you exceeded that and gave me the best day of my life. I prayed to you asking to show yourself strong and you embraced me with loving friends with huge hearts to laugh and love with.

But I write this post to praise you abundantly for the exceptional human being I can now call my fiancé @shinybootz . His presence drives me to praise you and thank you and reminds me how blessed I am.

My God I love you so much and I promise to always love him.

Steven also shared a photo of their rings.

Congratulations to the beautiful couple!
