Love is a great thing. It can be hard to find, but when two people are blessed with it and decide to unite as one, we should always congratulate them and celebrate their union. Over the weekend, director Anthony Hemingway and actor Steven Norfleet announced their engagement. The happy couple have been dating for over four years.

Norfleet who’s appeared on Chicago PD and Being Mary Jane, was celebrating his birthday when his boyfriend Anthony, popped the question. The happy couple took to social media to show the world their big announcement. On a photo of themselves on the boat smiling ear to ear, Steven said,
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.
