After years of rumors, “Empire” star Taraji P. Henson is finally ready to open up about her love life!
Earlier this week, Taraji, 47, confirmed she’s dating former football player Kelvin Hayden, 34. She shared on Essence’s "Yes, Girl!" podcast, “I’m happy in my personal life. Finally, it has happened to me!”
“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,” she added. “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.”
On Thursday, Henson also posted a pic of Kelvin with a puppy, writing, “Big #KBall with Lil squirt #KBall watching daddy brush his teeth! 😩😂😂😂.”
In September, Taraji told “Extra’s” Tanika Ray that she’s “very happy,” but kept quiet about her romance, saying, “I like to keep my stuff, 'cause nowadays, nothing is private."
