Taraji P. Henson announced early Monday morning that she said yes to boyfriend Kelvin Hayden’s marriage proposal.
“I said yes y’all!!! He started with the Cartier love bracelet BUT that was my #Mothersday gift and then he dropped to his knee and I almost passed out!!!” Henson, 47, captioned a picture of her massive sparkler. “??????????#sheisofficiallyoffthemarket and she is sooooooooooooo HAPPY!!!!!! #GODIS ????????”
Henson kept her relationship with Hayden, who played for the Chicago Bears and the Indianapolis Colts, under wraps until December 2017, when she confirmed the longtime speculation.
“I’m not the type to blast my personal business. But, you know, I think that’s important for people to know. I’m happy. I’m very very happy. I just am,” the “Empire” actress shared Thursday on Essence’s “Yes, Girl!” podcast.
“I’m happy in my personal life,” she added. “Finally, it happened to me!”
Rumors of Henson and 34-year-old Hayden’s pairing began in December 2015 after photos of the pair holding hands in Miami surfaced
