Lupita Nyong'o's rise to fame since her Oscar-winning turn in Steve McQueen's 12 Years a Slave has made her quite the Hollywood sweetheart, and her Ivy League background and incomparable good looks have made her the world's latest crush.

So, is it possible she's single?

Sadly, guys and girls around the world will have to get used to the fact that the beautiful Brooklynite may never give them the time of day — and it's not just because she's out of their league.

Us Weekly reports that Lupita has been in a relationship with rapper K'Naan for six months, so, sadly those gorgeous Leto-Nyong'o babies we'd hoped to see in the future may not be happening after all.

A source close to the Somali-born rapper reveals that the two New Yorkers became close last year, thanks in part to their philanthropic interests.

"She loves his humanitarianism," says K'Naan's pal. "They'd both passionate about African issues."  

So are wedding bells in store for the actress and her rapper beau?

Not so fast, says the source. While the couple may look cute together, they're in no rush to walk down the aisle.

"She hasn't met his kids," says the friend.

Maybe Jared has a chance after all!
