Taraji P. Henson Is Engaged to Kelvin Hayden

Actress Taraji P. Henson shared the news of her engagement to boyfriend Kelvin Hayden early Monday (May 14) morning.

“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!!!” Henson, 47, wrote under a photo of her massive rock. “#sheisofficiallyoffthemarket and she is sooooooooooooo HAPPY!!!!!! #GODIS.”

It was long speculated that Henson was dating the former NFL player. Hayden, 34, played for the Chicago Bears and the Indianapolis Colts. The couple was first spotted holding hands in Miami in 2015 and went public with their relationship in December 2017. Since then, the two have openly expressed their love for one another on social media.

Congratulations are in order for the beautiful couple.
