Issa Rae and Marsai Martin are mad busy as they make press rounds for their upcoming comedy, LITTLE. If you didn't know, the "black-ish" actress made history as the youngest executive producer in Hollywood history working behind the scenes on the project that's about to slay the box office.

Sprinkling a little #BlackGirlMagic in the Big Apple, Marsai and Issa stopped by "Good Morning America" to dish on the new film and what it was like to work on the project.

"It's lots of fun," Marsai said about being an executive producer of the film. "Being a 14-year-old person from Little Elm, TX, you know, you keep on having fun every single day. It's like different adventures. Being there with my family, and my friends and still keeping my ground and still being humble, it's amazing."

"I look at her and i think about how she's going to inspire so many other people, so many other young girls," Issa said about her 14-year-old co-star.

Peep their interview below:

The dynamic duo also hit up "The View" where Issa shared which scene was hard to shoot with Marsai:

Issa's "Insecure" co-stars Yvonne Orji and Jay Ellis spilled some alleged engagement tea, but what they said may not be true. Or, Issa doen't want it out in the world just yet.  We know she's the queen of "keep that low-key".

On the carpet at this yea'rs NAACP Image Awards both Yvonne and Jay confirmed to Entertainment Tonight that Issa's somebody's fiance:

"We're very excited for her," Orji expressed, with Ellis adding, "We all found out in different ways because we're all on different text chains. We talk at different times, so we all found out at different times in different ways."

She's allegedly engaged to Louis Diame, a Senagalese businessman.

Issa said nah, bruh. This isn't to say she's NOT engaged because she definitely has been wearing an engagement ring on her ring finger for the last few months. Maybe, she's just saying SHE hasn't made the announcement yet.

Remember how she did that play on words when asked if Jay Ellis' character Lawrence was coming back to the hit HBO series? Mmhmm...we haven't forgotten. Maybe chick just wants to make her own announcement to the masses about her engagement when she's ready.  And we can't even blame her.
