Taraji P. Henson Is Engaged to Kelvin Hayden -- See the Ring!

The 'Empire' star said yes!

Taraji P. Henson is single no more.

On Monday, the 47-year-old actress announced her engagement to 34-year-old former NFL pro Kelvin Hayden.

"I said yes y'all," the Empire star captioned an Instagram photo of her new ring along next to a congratulatory dessert. "He started with the Cartier love bracelet BUT that was my #Mothersday gift and then dropped to his knee and I almost passed out!!! #sheisofficiallyoffthemarket and she is sooooooooooooo HAPPY!!!!!! #GODIS."

Henson, who confirmed her two-year-long relationship with the former NFL player back in December, has expressed how much she enjoys being in a relationship.

"I'm happy in my personal life. Finally it has happened to me," the Hidden Figures star shared on Essence's Yes, Girl podcast. 


Back in September, Henson exclusively shared with ET what she looks for in a partner. 

"It doesn't take much to make me happy," she said. "Just someone who's going to take care of my heart, you know? Someone who's going to make me feel safe, you know, and a home to go to."
