If this isn’t a match made in TV heaven we don’t know what is!

Orange is the New Black star Samira Wiley and show writer Lauren Morelli are engaged.

The pair announced the happy news on social media, posting a gorgeous photo of both women beaming.

In the snap, the actress is sporting a massive diamond ring, her eyes closed with joy while Lauren grins in the background.

Samira, who plays Poussey Washington on the hit series, captioned the image with a simple, “Yes”.

The couple have been dating since 2014.

The pair began dating in 2014 after Lauren split amicably from her husband of two years Steve Basilone.

Lauren says she realised she was gay on the set of OINTB after being peppered with questions from cast members about her marriage.

Samira fell in love while working on the hit TV show.

“I was finally forced to consider a question that had never, ever occurred to me before: ‘Holy s–t, am I gay?’” she said.

She then fell in love with Samira on set, and the rest, as they say, is history.

We wish them all the happiness in the world!
