Taraji P. Henson Dishes on Fiance Kelvin Hayden's Romantic Proposal (Exclusive)

Kelvin Hayden's return to the limelight has nothing to do with football.

Taraji P. Hensonis going to be a bride!

She has son Marcell, 24, from her marriage with high-school sweetheart, William Lamar Johnson, who was murdered in 2003.

Though Henson confirmed that the two were dating in December 2015, it is believed that the relationship began about a year earlier.

On social media, Taraji wrote: "I said yes y'all!"

"I didn't put it together", she quipped to Entertainment Tonight on Monday. "I'm happy in my personal life".

"I'm not the type to blast my personal business, but you know, I think that it's important for people to know that I'm happy".

"I remember him grabbing me one night and he was like, 'Woman, you sure you want to get married?' And I was like, 'Why do you keep asking me the same question?" I'm very, very happy. "He takes me where we had our first date, I didn't put that together".

"I knew he was gonna pop the question because he all but told me himself. But I'm very happy".

If Taraji P. Henson is happy, then we're happy!

We're absolutely delighted for her!

The actress revealed this overwhelming news on her Instagram page flaunting an engagement ring on her finger.

There, the two went to dinner at the same restaurant they had their first date - another clue that Henson missed. As previously mentioned, she also starred in Proud Mary.

And while Taraji admits she was surprised by Kelvin asking her to be his wife, the Acrimony star admitted that she knew her beau had bought a ring. Empire returns for its fifth season this fall on Fox.
