American artist Fortune Feimster is a woman of multiple talents. Primarily known as a comedian, she has also excelled as an actress and a writer over the years.

After making her TV debut through the stand-up show Last Comic Standing in 2010, the artist has featured in several TV shows like After Lately (2011-13), The Mindy Project (2012-17), Go-Go Boy Interrupted (2014-16), The Standups (2017-Present), Champions (2018), and more.

Apart from her works on TV, Fortune also hosts a podcast titled Sincerely Fortune

Came Out As Lesbian At 25

Coming out as a lesbian was not easy for Fortune as it took a long time for her to realize her sexuality. Growing up, though Fortune was a tomboy and had no interest in playing with dolls, she didn't have any gay/lesbian idols to look up to. Also, the unavailability of the internet at those times made it harder for the comedian to explore her sexual nature.

Fortune eventually came out as a lesbian in 2005 at the age of 25.

Long-Running Relationship With Girlfriend, Engagement Details

Fortune Feimster has been in a long-term relationship with a woman named Jacquelyn Smith. Her girlfriend, Jacquelyn, works as a podcaster-educator is a travel lover.

The girlfriends first started dating around June/July 2015 and have been together ever since. 

Eventually, on 6 January 2018, after dating for two and a half years, Fortune proposed her girlfriend for marriage during a trip to Big Sur, California. Jacquelyn immediately accepted the proposal as the couple got officially engaged from the day.

Despite remaining engaged for more than two years, Fortune and her fiancee are yet to get married.

Although the two have occasionally mentioned their will to get married, the artist and her partner are far from setting a wedding date.

Weight Loss Approach: Before & Now

Frankly, Fortune Feimster has always been quite bulky ever since she was a kid (check out her childhood and teenage pictures here if you don't follow). 

However, her views towards health and her weight issues have changed drastically over the years. Back in 2012, the comedian made a hysterical joke about weight loss when she claimed that losing weight caused women to have smaller breasts. Fortune even mentioned that she was not interested in making a weight loss if it meant sacrificing the size of her breasts.

But, by April 2019, she had a completely changed view on the matter. Via her podcast, Fortune talked about the struggles she faced due to her weight and also mentioned her new & healthier approach to life. Further, she gave health tips to her listeners struggling from a similar condition.
