Condola Rashad, the daughter of our favorite TV mom, Phylicia Rashad, and TV analyst Ahmad Rashad, has seen her star rise in the last few years, putting in serious work in the acting arena. Now it looks as if she is ready to embark on a new part of her life.

Sebastian!!!!!!!!!!!The surprise!! The shock! My sisters commentary in the background is to die for.????????????❤️❤️❤️

Rashad, 30, reportedly on vacation in Mexico, said yes to fellow actor Sebastian Vallentin Stenhøj, who asked for her hand during a boat ride with the Billions star and her crew (including her hilarious sister, who can be heard off-screen during the video) on New Year's Eve. Rashad seemed truly surprised.


She posted the post-proposal (we don’t actually hear him asking, but see the immediate aftermath) on Instagram on the last day of the year, and captioned it “Sebastian!!!!!!!! The surprise!! The shock! My sisters commentary in the background is to die for.”

Stenhøj also speaks a bit in the video and explains the significance of the ring he presented to Rashad.

“This is white gold and sapphire, it’s half a century old. My grandmother has worn it her whole life,” he says reverently.


We wish the couple the most success!
