Taraji P. Henson said “yes” to former Superbowl winning NFL star Kelvin Hayden on Mother’s Day.
According to her Instagram account, Hayden, 34, gifted her a Cartier love bracelet as a Mother’s Day gift and dropped down on one knee and asked the Empire star for her hand in marriage.
The couple confirmed that they were dating back in December and Henson, 47, couldn’t be happier. However, the two have been an item for the past two years now and we are just now seeing them blossom!
During a special episode of ESSENCE’s Yes, Girl podcast Henson said, “I’m not the type to blast my personal business, but you know, I think that it’s important for people to know that I’m happy,” she added. “I’m very, very happy. I just am. We’ve been together for two years. And no one would really know that, because I don’t blast my info like that, but I’m very happy.”
Hayden has yet to confirm the engagement on his social media, but Taraji has definitely filled us in!
