In April 2019, there were rumors that she was engaged when she was photographed wearing what appeared to be an engagement ring on her Essence cover. However, during an appearance on The View, the actress debunked the allegations by stating that she had many rings, one of which she was wearing.
On the other side, her co-stars confirmed her engagement. Jay Ellis and Yvonne Orji appeared to announce their engagement while conversing with reporters at the 2019 NAACP Image Awards. They were pleased for her, Orji told Entertainment Tonight, and Jay added that they learnt about it at different times and in different ways because they were all on separate text chains. Rae has taken additional precautions throughout her career to keep her personal life hidden from inquisitive eyes.
While she was featured in the March 2018 issue of Vogue, interviewer Abby Aguirre asked the actress if she was seeing anyone. She deflected the question by explaining why she keeps her personal life private.
