Laverne Cox reveals her supercute mystery man on Instagram

When it comes to love, Laverne Cox likes to take it slow.

Last month, the Emmy-nominated actress let it be known that she was smitten, but stopped short of naming who the lucky guy was. Well, now the mystery man’s identity has finally been revealed. Sort of.

Speaking to Access Hollywood last month, Laverne confessed that she met her new beau on Tinder.

“Honestly, I’m a Tinder girl,” she said. “When I broke up with my ex, I went back on Tinder, because I feel like if you want to date, you have to be on the apps. You have to be on the apps to be in the game.”

Now, after keeping her man a secret for nine months, Laverne has shared a photo of the couple cuddling in bed. The pic was posted on her Instagram story, along with a bunch of happy heart emojis.

So who exactly is Laverne’s new bare-chested, blue-eyed beau?

Well, despite the uncanny resemblance, it’s not Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak-Biermann’s husband Kroy Biermann.

Laverne is still being coy and not naming names…yet.

“Love is so incredibly healing,” the actress said last month. “I’m just so happy. When you’re happy. Love is life-saving.”

Congrats to the happy couple!
