Earlier tonight, “Empire” star Taraji P. Henson had some fun on the Emmys red carpet!

“Extra’s” Renee Bargh and Adam Glassman spoke with Taraji about the pregnancy rumors that started swirling after reports she wasn’t drinking at the U.S. Open. She commented, “I was loaded, and the story was so elaborate, ‘Kelvin Hayes, her fiancé, coddling her,’ and I’m like, ‘That’s why I love him,' cause he takes good care of me.’”

Henson proved them all wrong by drinking tequila with Renee and Adam. She laughed, emphasizing, "No, I’m not giving tequila to my nonexistent baby!"

Taraji was without her fiancé, who is busy working. She shared, “He is coaching, inspiring young guys to do what he did.”

Henson took her sister as her date to the Emmys.

During the interview, Taraji revealed that she was excited to see Emmy nominee and winner Regina King, pointing out, “That’s my sister-friend!”
