Taraji P Henson engaged to former footballer Kelvin Hayden

The loved-up couple only went public with their romance in December previous year, but at the time, Taraji admitted she was thrilled to have found love with Kelvin, 34. Alongside a photograph of her sparkling engagement ring and a congratulatory cake, Taraji wrote: "I said yes y'all!"

Emmy-nominated actress Taraji P. Henson revealed Monday via Instagram she's engaged to the former National Football League cornerback.

She went on to say that the ring must have been "burning a hole in his pocket" because he told their friends and family that he planned to propose later this year. "And no one would really know that, because I don't blast my info like that, but I'm very happy".

"We've been together for two years".

But Taraji is pleased she let the proposal play out as it did, and added she's "very very happy". And she said yes!

"She was like, 'You need to go out". "It's starting to get overwhelming, and we're thinking, we're talking a year from now, and I know how fast that's going to go, so it's a lot. You need to go out'". "That's exactly what happened", she recalled. He played five seasons with the Colts and helped them defeat the Chicago Bears in Super Bowl XLI, a game in which he returned an interception for a touchdown.

And when she has opened up about Hayden, the "Empire" star has had nothing but good things to say.

"Jussie (Smollett) came down to my room and screamed and did backflips", she said. "I go back there and I go, 'Ronald's not into violins, what's going on here?' And as I'm putting the dots together, I turn around, he's on his knee". "That's a big move right there for her'".
