Taraji P. Henson is engaged to her boyfriend Kelvin Hayden.
The actress revealed on Monday, May 14. The former NFL star proposed to Henson on Sunday, May 13, during an extra special Mother’s Day celebration.
The Proud Mary actress, 47, shared an Instagram photo of herself holding her beau’s hand and displaying her stunning round diamond ring. A plate of chocolate-covered strawberries with “Congratulations” written in chocolate syrup was in the background.
Henson who has a 24 years old son from her previous relationship, shared a photo showing off her new rock and let her followers know “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!!!,” she continued in the Instagram post.
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.”
Henson, 47, and Hayden, 34, have dated for more than two years.
