*Gabourey Sidibe is ecstatic over her “Empire” costars Grace Gealey and Trai Byers, who confirmed their engagement last month.
“I love both Trai and Grace so much, they are such good people,” Sidibe, 32, told People while being honored at the Reel Works Gala Benefit 2015 Wednesday in New York City.
“They’re so sweet, and I just love them,” she added. “We’re real friends.”
Dating rumors surrounding Gealey and Byers circulated for months before Byers put a ring on it in late July.
The two kept quiet about their relationship until Gealey, 31, revealed the happy news Oct. 7 during an episode of FABLife, hosted by Tyra Banks and Chrissy Teigen.
“I think that if you do get involved at your workplace you have to know that this is something that you want to be invested in, and this is just not just something that is frivolous and fleeting,” Gealey said on the talk show, adding that her relationship with Byers is “for real, for real” and “not a fling” while waving around her sparkly engagement ring.
“I love the show,” gushed Sidibe, who recently starred in her very own steamy sex scene. “The show is the greatest show. … I can’t wait to get back to work. I love work so much.”
