This Is Us fans are used to having their hearts broken. However, viewers probably aren’t used to having stars like Susan Kelechi Watson breaking bad news in real life. Unfortunately, confirmation through a recent social media post has her followers flabbergasted.
The actor reportedly confirmed on Instagram she’s single again.
Perez Hilton caught the announcement on an Instagram story. The This Is Us star was celebrating the apparent election of Joe Biden as president. However, amid her celebration, she spilled some relationship beans.
“And I thought becoming Single was gonna be the only eventful thing to happen to me this year. #TwentyTwenty,” She wrote.
Celebrating her candidates becoming President-elect and Vice-President-elect was the key takeaway. But confirming something few fans knew before Saturday is getting the headlines.
Kelechi Watson and fellow actor Jaime Lincoln Smith became engaged in 2019. By most accounts, they were a happy couple. Something changed over the last few months.
Eagled-eyed celeb watchers noticed the couple scrubbed their social media accounts recently. Neither has any mention of the other in their Instagram pages these days. However, neither hinted anything happened before the This Is Us Star‘s post.
If Kelechi Watson is suffering from heartbreak, it was momentarily drown out this weekend. She didn’t come close to hiding her extreme excitement over the election. She also made it clear before they announced the results that she found voting quite important.
That included one post where she displayed her “I Voted” sticker proudly.
The television star had several other posts celebrating the Democrats’ win.
Lincoln Smith posted similar celebratory posts on his own Instagram account. He celebrated the Biden/Harris win but also celebrated a Black woman, and South Asian woman is going to be the vice-president for the first time in the country’s history.
‘This Is Us’ Star Right Pinpoints 2020
Despite the electoral win, Kelechi Watson’s comment about this year seems pretty on point. Yes, Donald Trump appears to have lost his re-election bid. However, plenty of people feel things went wrong more often than right in 2020.
The This Is Us actor is counting her romantic life among those going wrong. Perhaps in the coming days she’ll elaborate on why.
Fans consider Kelechi Watson one of America’s sweethearts. She might not be a household name just yet. However, she is one of the most recognizable faces on the popular drama.
Fans of her show always want someone they feel like they know to be happy. Even if they know the character an actor plays isn’t necessarily all that similar to who they really are.
If she has indeed moved on from Lincoln Smith, it’s a safe bet her friends and followers are hoping she can find someone she wants to end up with in the very near future.
