Love is in the air for Lupita Nyong’o and Selema Masekela!
The “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” star and the TV host announced their relationship on Friday with adorable Instagram posts.
“We just click! 💘 @selema #thisismylove #nuffsaid,” Nyong’o, 39, captioned an Instagram Reel of the new couple snapping in unison while their outfits changed to the tune of Iniko’s “The King’s Affirmation (Chill Mix)” featuring Reuel Williams.
Masekela, 51, shared the same video but used his own sweet caption.
“Hearts are synched. My whole and actual love @lupitanyongo. ❤️❤️❤️#outkickedthecoverage 😉,” he gushed.
The lovebirds appear to be on vacation, as their getups went from matching paisley robes to matching cheetah-print bathing suits. They also rocked three elegant ensembles that complemented one another.
The pair’s famous friends could not contain their excitement.
“Obsessed 😍😍,” musician Janelle Monáe commented on the Oscar winner’s post, as “Black-ish” star Tracee Ellis Ross added, “❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️.”
The broadcaster’s upload got plenty of love as well, with R&B singer Kehlani exclaiming, “Woooooowwwww i LOVE THISSSSSSS BROOOO.”
“Congrats bud. You deserve it 🤘🏼🤘🏼🤘🏼,” Pink’s husband, Carey Hart, remarked, while “Full House” alum Jodie Sweetin commented, “Ok… the dancing. The looks. This is all 🔥🔥🔥.”
Fellow media personality Jason Kennedy also gave the romance his stamp of approval, writing, “I’m here for this 😍.”
Nyong’o — who has shot down dating rumors involving Michael B. Jordan and Jared Leto, separately, in the past — is notorious for keeping her love life under wraps because “privacy is a commodity that is hard to come by.”
“Filming is so time-consuming. And intense,” the actress told Vogue UK in December 2019. “With ‘Black Panther,’ a lot of us were single. On ‘Little Monsters,’ nobody was single.”
“Everyone — when they’re done with their day’s work — wants to go home to their families, which makes a whole lot of sense,” she added. “When you don’t have that, it’s very isolating.”
Originally from New York, Masekela is the son of South African jazz musician Hugh Masekela. As a sports reporter, he’s covered the Winter X Games for ESPN and the Summer Olympics for NBC.
