Taraji P. Henson Dishes on Fiance Kelvin Hayden's Romantic Proposal (Exclusive)

In addition to being the leading lady on FOX's hit drama Empire, and producing and starring in her upcoming film Proud Mary, Henson is enjoying her romance with Super Bowl winning former National Football League star Kelvin Hayden too. She wrote, "I said yes y'all!"

She continued, "He started with the Cartier love bracelet BUT that was my #Mothersday gift and then he dropped to his knee and I nearly passed out!#sheisofficiallyoffthemarket and she is sooooooooooooo HAPPY!"

While Henson is officially confirming that she and Hayden are dating, don't expect the Oscar-nominated actress not to continue to keep the details of her private life under wraps.

But Taraji is pleased she let the proposal play out as it did, and added she's "very very happy". The 47-year-old also thrilled with the diamond Kelvin chose for her, adding to Entertainment Tonight: "It's flawless". Now, she can add a fantastic proposal story to the day.

Just weeks before Christmas, Henson shared on Instagram that Hayden already gave her a present that she loves. "It's starting to get overwhelming, and we're thinking, we're talking a year from now, and I know how fast that's going to go, so it's a lot". I just am. And you know, we've been together for two years.


"People are hitting me up", she admitted.

"I think that he did a wonderful job", said Terrence Howard, who plays Henson's onscreen husband, Lucious Lyon.

"Mom's Day is a threesome for me", she gushed to the outlet. Taraji continued, "I just lost it!"

How many selfies have you taken today?

"I already knew he was going to Dubai to get my ring". Empire returns for its fifth season this fall on Fox.
