Chicago Fire star Monica Raymund announced via Twitter a couple of years ago that she was bisexual. At the time she was married to Neil Patrick Stewart. They separated and divorced in 2014, but the separation was pretty under the radar.
Today Raymund announced via Twitter that she has a girlfriend. “She is the love of my life,” Monica tweeted, along with a pic of her girlfriend Tari Segal sleeping.

Monica announced she was bi in early 2014 during the run up to the Olympics in Sochi, when she Tweeted an article about a Norwegian artist's protest of Russia's antigay laws. When a female Twitter user asked if Monica had just come out as bi, she replied, “Yup. Hey Ladies ;P.”
She then clarified that she had been out for some time. “Nope I didn’t just come out --you just late to the party. But I have drinks for all y’all," she Tweeted along with a hastag that she'd been out and proud for 10 years.
Congratulations to Monica and Tari on finding love with one another. But perhaps what’s just as exciting is that Monica and her former Chicago Fire costar Lauren German (who played a lesbian character who was unceremoniously killed off a season ago) are still good buddies. Lauren instagrammed a pic hanging out with Monica and Tari.
