Taraji P. Henson is getting married to her former football star Kelvin Hayden and we couldn’t be happier for the beautiful couple!
Henson reportedly dated Hayden for two years and pretty much kept the relationship under wraps until recently. The Empire Star shared the story behind Hayden’s Mother’s Day proposal and also gave us a glimpse of her rock on Monday saying:
“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. #sheisofficiallyoffthemarket and she is sooooooooooooo HAPPY!!!!!! #GODIS.”
Get em’ girl.
Last year she told Essence, “I’m happy in my personal life. Finally it has happened to me!” the Maryland native said when questioned about her rumored relationship status.
“I’m very happy. Everything is coming together,” the star said in an interview on Essence’s podcast “Yes, Girl!.”. “I’m happy in my personal life.”
No word yet on the wedding plans but Taraji P. Henson has a full schedule with roles in the upcoming Will Packer film, What Men Want. According to Deadline, the movie is a reboot of the 2000 Nancy Meyers hit romantic comedy What Women Want. The new version follows a female sports agent (Henson) who has been constantly boxed out by her male colleagues. When she gains the power to hear men’s thoughts, she is able to shift the paradigm to her advantage as she races to sign the NBA’s next superstar.
