Taraji P. Henson Engaged to Kelvin Hayden — See Her Ring!

“Empire” star Taraji P. Henson has found Mr. Right!

After two years of quietly dating former football player Kelvin Haden, Henson is engaged.

Along with a pic of her ring, Taraji wrote on Instagram, “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!!!"

“#sheisofficiallyoffthemarket and she is sooooooooooooo HAPPY!!!!!! #GODIS,” Taraji added.

Last year, Henson told “Extra’s” Tanika Ray that she was “very happy,” but remained coy about her relationship, saying, “I like to keep my stuff, 'cause nowadays, nothing is private.

Five months ago, Taraji told Essence's "Yes, Girl!” podcast, “I’m happy in my personal life. Finally, it has happened to me!” Then, in January, Taraji told “Extra’s” AJ Calloway that the relationship is “very serious,” which is why she decided to finally talk about her private life.

Weeks before he popped the question, Taraji revealed the secret to their relationship, telling “Extra’s” Mark Wright, “We’re very honest with each other. We don’t hold anything back... We laugh a lot.”
