Taraji P. Henson Said “YES” And Gave Her Hand For Marriage To Kelvin Hayden #OffTheMarket

Looks like we are going to witness another “Royal” wedding and I’m here to watch it all. With that being said, we are glad to see one more deserving woman get her just due, a great partner, which in the end, is all a woman wants for her new beginnings of living the life of love. Wishing these two plenty of blessings and nothing but the best!

(ENews) Taraji P. Henson is going to be a bride! After quietly dating former football star Kelvin Hayden for more than two years, the NFL pro put a ring on it. The Empire star announced the happy news and showed off her new sparkler early Monday morning.

“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!!!” she captioned a shot of her new bling. “#sheisofficiallyoffthemarket and she is sooooooooooooo HAPPY!!!!!! #GODIS.”

The engagement may come as a surprise to some considering the actress has kept their romance out of the spotlight. It wasn’t until late December 2017 that Henson addressed their longtime relationship publicly.

“I’m very happy. Everything is coming together,” the star said in an interview on Essence’spodcast “Yes, Girl!.” at the time. “I’m happy in my personal life.”
