Empire actress Taraji P. Henson has announced her engagement to 34-year-old former American footballer Kelvin Hayden on photo sharing social media platform, Instagram on Monday, May 14, 2018.
Adding that, “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!!! (crying with laughter emojis) #sheisofficiallyoffthemarket and she is sooooooooooooo HAPPY!!!!!! #GODIS,” followed by ring and lips emojis.
The couple were first linked together in December 2015 when they were spotted holding hands on the beach while on vacation in Florida, but she didn’t confirm the relationship until December 17.
“I’m happy in my personal life. Finally, it has happened to me!” she told Essence’s Yes, Girl! podcast. “You know, 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.
“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.”
