Taraji P. Henson & Boyfriend Kevin Hayden Are Engaged!

It was a Happy Mother’s Day indeed for our girl, Taraji P. Henson!

Early Monday morning, “Empire” star, Taraji P. Henson revealed that she and boyfriend, former football player Kevin Hayden, are taking their relationship to the next level. Hensen took to Instagram sharing the engagement news with her nearly 12 million followers.

“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 captioned a shot of her new bling. “#sheisofficiallyoffthemarket and she is sooooooooooooo HAPPY!!!!!! #GODIS.”

Henson and Hayden have been dating for 2 years, but have kept their relationship status private. It wasn’t until Henson sat down with Essence’s podcast, “Yes Girl,” back in December, that she addressed the news.

“I’m very happy. Everything is coming together,” the star said in an interview on Essence’s podcast “Yes, Girl!.” at the time. “I’m happy in my personal life.”

“I’m not the type to blast my personal business. But, you know, I think that’s important for people to know. I’m happy. I’m very very happy. I just am,” she added. “And you know, we’ve been together for two years. No one would really know that because I don’t really blast my info like that. But I’m very happy.”

Congrats to Taraji & Kevin, we can’t wait for the wedding!
