Congratulations are in order. Taraji P Henson and her longtime boyfriend Kelvin Hayden got engaged yesterday. Kelvin proposed to Taraji - as a special Mother's Day present. Taraji has a teenage son from a previous marriage.
The couple have been dating OFF and ON for the past two years. Last fall the two decided to SPLIT UP - after Taraji reportedly caught her former NFL beau cheating on her.
But the Empire actress eventually TOOK HIM BACK, and he's changed his ways. According to most onlookers, Kelvin seems to be a changed man. No other reports of CHEATING have surfaced in the past six months.
Henson, 47, and Hayden, 34, shared a photo showing off her new rock and let her followers know "I said yes y’all!!!" She continued in her caption, ""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 continued in the Instagram post. "#sheisofficiallyoffthemarket and she is sooooooooooooo HAPPY!!!!!!""
According to USA Today, "Henson confirmed her relationship with the football star back in December, opening up on Essence's "Yes, Girl!" podcast about keeping her two-year relationship under wraps for so long.
"Everything is coming together," Henson said. "I'm happy in my personal life."
"We’ve been together for two years," the Proud Mary star said in the interview. "And no one would really know that because I don’t blast my info like that but I’m very happy."
Hayden has yet to share the news on his social media, but he posted a photo of the two of them on Valentine's Day earlier this year."
