This is a Mother’s Day present Taraji P. Henson will never forget! The Empire star said yes to her boyfriend Kelvin Hayden over the weekend and we couldn’t be happier! First, the retired NFL player surprised her with $6,000 his and hers Cartier Love bracelets.
Later that day he proposed, sending the 47-year-old over moon!
The pair have been dating for about two years, confirming the news last year, telling Essence’s Yes, Girl podcast, “it finally happened.”
The Proud Mary star’s love life has come a long way since 2015 when she told Steve Harvey, “if there’s nothing on this finger, if this finger is naked, no one gets claimed.” Watch below.
And we ain’t mad at it! With the renewal of the fifth season of Empire, her upcoming film What Women Want alongside Aldis Hodge and Tracy Morgan and starring and executive producing the Emmett Till biopic, the Washington, DC native has a ton on her plate. We’re just glad she made room for love!
Congratulations to the gorgeous couple!
