Taraji P. Henson Sets the Record Straight on Pregnancy Rumors

“Empire” star Taraji P. Henson is living her best life!

“Extra’s” Tanika Ray sat down with Taraji on the set of her hit show, where she cleared up pregnancy rumors. She commented, “I am not pregnant, ya’ll, please cut it out.”

After reports she wasn’t drinking at the U.S. Open, Taraji addressed the rumors, which were buzzing on social media. She shared, “I was drinking a wine spritzer so yes, there was alcohol — I was just pacing myself.”

Henson was able to laugh about the stories, which pointed out that “her fiancé kept coddling her and holding her,” saying, “That makes me pregnant? He does that to me all the time.”

Henson says she and her NFL-player boyfriend Kelvin Hayden are not planning on having children together. Taraji, already a mother to a grown son, explained, “No, we’re done. He still has three little ones that aren’t teenagers yet. We’re good.”

Of her beau, Henson gushed, “We’re just really good for each other.”

The pair are planning to tie the knot next year. She revealed it would happen "one year from when he proposed — late June, early July.”

As for the wedding location, she said, “It’s probably gonna be home, somewhere with his family and my family, a nice meeting ground where everyone can get to… We'll find some mutual ground.”

Taraji emphasized that it’ll be a “simple” wedding.

Aside from wedding planning, Taraji is also busy working on the fifth season of “Empire.” She teased, “Season 5 is about rebuilding, starting over from a clean slate.”

“Empire” returns September 24 on FOX.
