Los Angeles: Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong`o and boyfriend K`naan may have been shy about taking their relationship public at first, but the couple recently went out on a dinner date in Brooklyn.
The `12 Years a Slave actress`, 31, and the Somali-born rapper, 36, hit up Italian eatery Dino, a restaurant in Brooklyn`s Fort Greene neighborhood, reportedly.
There they dined on soup (his) and salad (hers), while sipping speciality cocktails from the bar. "They looked very much in love and not afraid to show it. The two kissed and held hands throughout dinner," a source said.
The lovebirds are yet to make their red carpet debut as a couple. It was reported back in March that the Kenya-raised actress -- who now makes her home in New York City -- had been secretly dating K`naan since September 2013.
