Samira Wiley of 'OITNB' celebrates birthday on honeymoon
UPI News Service, 04/19/2017
Samira Wiley celebrated her birthday Saturday while on her honeymoon.
The "Orange is the New Black" alum turned 30 years old during her trip to Italy with wife Lauren Morelli, a former writer and producer on the popular Netflix series.
"My wife took this picture, I didn't put a filter on it, and we're on our honeymoon in Italy," Wiley captioned a photo on Instagram. "Happy Birthday to me. #30."
Wiley and Morelli have been moving around Italy over the past two weeks. The writer marked Wiley's birthday by sharing a series of pictures of the actress sleeping during their travels.
"Happy birthday to my wife, who has successfully slept on any mode of transportation we encountered on our honeymoon," she wrote.
Wiley and Morelli married March 25 in Palm Springs, Calif., after getting engaged in October.
The couple started dating in 2014 after Morelli came out as gay and split from husband Steve Basilone.
"I realized I was gay in fall 2012, one of my first days on the [OITNB] set," she wrote in an Identities.Mic essay in 2014. "[I'm] now out to my family, my friends, and most of my co-workers on Orange."
