Congratulations are in order!
Television star, movie actress, and author Taraji P. Henson recently announced her engagement to former NFL player Kelvin Hayden. The two got engaged over Mother’s Day weekend — what a wonderful way to celebrate Henson’s motherhood!
Henson is best-known for her starring role in the hit series “Empire,” but she has starred in several other television shows and movies including “Hidden Figures” and “Think Like a Man.” Her fiance played in the NFL for the Indianapolis Colts, Atlanta Falcons, and Chicago Bears before retiring in 2014.
“I said yes y’all!!! He started with the Cartier love bracelet BUT that was my Mother’s Day gift and then he dropped to his knee and I almost passed out!!!” the “Empire” star announced with excitement. “She is officially off the market and she is sooooooooooooo HAPPY!”
In her exciting post, she also acknowledged God with a hashtag.
The newly-engaged couple appeared to be out at a fine dining restaurant during the time of the proposal. A plate with chocolate-covered strawberries and a slice of chocolate cake was seen in the background with “Congratulations” drizzled in syrup.
