Tracee Ellis Ross 48-Years-Old and Happy, Refuse To Wait Around For Marriage

She is desired by many. She is hailed as one of the dopest actresses of our generation. She is cool, calm, collected, poised, sexy, classy, and a bit of ratchet. She is Tracee Ellis Ross, daughter of the legendary Diana Ross. And for a long time, many have questioned what’s up with Ross’s love life. The actress is finally coming forward with an explanation.

At 48-years-old, Tracee Ellis Ross proves that age can bring more beauty. The Black-Ish actress also proves that work doesn’t slow down at all. She’s one of the hardest working women in Hollywood and has only just begun. In a recent interview with Marie Claire, Tracee Ellis Ross spoke about the various pressures she currently experiences. One of them is to “settle down” and start a family, much like her character “Joan Clayton” on the iconic sitcom Girlfriends. Clayton’s dream was to become engaged, married, and have the “white picket fence” American dream with children. For eight seasons, we watched as Joan would try, and fail, at achieving this dream while trying to focus on her career and figure out the other vicissitudes of life.

Tracee Ellis Ross boasts of feeling “sexier now than she’s ever felt”, and admits that she still feels the longing to settle down. However, the actress feels that this longing is inevitable due to the programming that one almost immediately receives when one is younger. “Our society spoon-feeds it to you. I used to put myself to sleep dreaming of my wedding,” confessed Ross. And while she claims to still desire this outcome for her life, Ross boldly declares that she will not “sit around waiting” for it to happen.

“I’ve got so many things to do,” Tracee Ellis Ross expressed. And she’s not lying. Tracee Ellis Ross is booked and busy. Although her show Mixed-ish that she co-created with Kenya Barris was cancelled after two seasons, she returns to Black-ish in her award-winning role of “Rainbow.” The show is currently filming its last season.

The actress was recently announced to have signed a multi-year overall deal with ABC Signature. In the deal, her production company will be able to deliver and produce content for various networks and platforms. As for her love life, Tracee Ellis Ross has not always been open to sharing who she is or has dated. In 2017, she shared with ABC News that because she was born in such a high-profile and public family, she’s resistant to sharing her relationships with the public.

One relationship that happened to become public knowledge was with Akon’s older brother and music manager Bu Thiam. However, Tracee Ellis Ross was reluctant to go deeper in their relationship with the media. “When you do that, you invite other people and their opinions and issues in,” she said to Uptown Magazine. “You can’t discover the person on your own.” They have since split in 2016. The latest rumor is that the actress is dating Kenya Barris, creator of Blackish and all others in the “-ish Universe”. Neither party has confirmed or denied the rumor.
