In a series of posts on X, Anya also narrated how Alang involved their children and friends in planning the proposal.

The 47-year-old academic said the moment was “filled with happiness, unadulterated and overwhelming joy”.

“And so it happened! Sirry and I are officially wives-to-be. Aso Ebi colors we don’t know yet, but the wedding will happen in the DC area sometime in the next two years,” she wrote.


Anya is a lecturer at the Carnegie Mellon University in the United States.

She became popular in 2022 after her tweet wishing the late Queen Elizabeth II an “excruciating pain” went viral.

Alang, on the other hand, is a Cameroonian-American health services researcher.

She is also an associate professor of Sociology and Health, Medicine and Society at Lehigh University.


Anya and Alang were said to have been married to men in previous years and had children.
