Empire’s Taraji ‘Cookie’ Henson is engaged!

“Empire” star, Taraji Penda Henson is engaged to former NFL player, Kelvin Hayden.

Taraji says she “almost passed out” when the former NFL player got down on one knee and proposed.

Taraji took to her Instagram page to share the good news with her fans.

She wrote: “I said yes y’all! He started with the cartier love bracelet, but that was my mother’s day gift. He dropped to his knee and I almost passed out.”

Taraji, in her post, included the hash tag: “#sheisofficiallyoffthemarket” and “she is sooooooooooo Happy”.

Though Kelvin Hayden hasn’t spoken about the exciting news on his social media pages, he posted, on Instgram last Sunday, a photo of himself and Ms Henson enjoying a glass of wine.

The couple have been dating for slightly two years now.

Ms Henson officially confirmed she was in a relationship with the NFL player in December, 2017.

Ms Henson said in an interview, then, with Essence: “I’m very happy. Everything is coming together. I’m happy in my personal life. Yes, girl.

“I’m not the type to blast my personal business. But, you know, I think it is important for people to know. I’m happy. I’m very, very happy. I just am. 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.”
