Blame it on the alcohol, Gabourey Sidibe had a sweet Valentine’s Day gift for a secret admirer, but there is a hilarious twist to this story.
The Empire actress recently took to Instagram where she shared a photo of a well-packaged box from an unnamed person.
Miss Sidibe received a red candle, a fury jewelry box, and some delicious chocolate. The talented filmmaker revealed that she also received a kind note that touched her heart.
However, at the end of her post, she confessed that she is the one who mailed herself the box while drunk.
The author stated: “I got this super cute box for Valentines Day in the mail!! It didn’t have a name or come with a note so I couldn’t figure out who sent it to me, but I was really excited to have a secret admirer! It turns out, I got drunk and sent it to myself a few weeks ago….. Still counts tho.”
She also revealed that she finally took the leap and bought her first Timberlands and they are pink.
She added: “I’m from NYC, but I’ve never owned Timberlands because it JUST occurred to me that I can buy myself a pair. Obviously, my first pair of Timbs is pink to match my coat. Duh. I have the same exact fashion goals that I had when I was in the 7th grade.”
Fans called Sidibe an inspiration and told her self-love is the best kind of love.
