Taraji P. Henson Announces Engagement To NFL Baller Bae & Shows Off Gorgeous Engagement Ring & New Cartier Bracelet — Photos

No one will ever be good enough for Taraji P. Henson in our minds. She is just a treasure.

But we are still extra super excited for her today! 

Why? She’s engaged.

On Mother's Day too! 

Yup. The actress is going to be walking down the aisle with former NFL star Kelvin Hayden, she revealed via Instagram on Monday.

Sharing a photo of her new very sparkly diamond, she wrote, “I said yes y’all!!!”


In the background of the snap, a dessert plate with cake and chocolate-covered strawberries had a message that read, “Congratulations.”

“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!!!,” continued Henson on Instagram. Adding several emojis, Henson wrote, “😩😩😂😂😂#sheisofficiallyoffthemarket and she is sooooooooooooo HAPPY!!!!!! #GODIS 💍💋💋💋.”

While her future husband hasn’t addressed the news yet on social media, he did share a photo of himself and Taraji enjoying a glass of wine to his Instagram story on Sunday night.

The 47-year-old stunner and the 34-year-old athlete first confirmed their relationship back in December.

Taraji opened up about staying relatively quiet about their courtship a few months back (and finally spreading the word).

"It was all over TheShaderoom anyway. You know, 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’m very very happy. I just am. We’ve been together for two years. And no one would really know that because I don’t blast my info like that but I’m very happy."


Taraji also shared, "It wasn't even about talking about my life, I just had a question, they asked me if I was happy and I said 'I'm very happy' and they ran with it, did all the research."

"So it wasn't like, 'Let's sit down and talk about my life!' No it wasn't [...] But I am very happy."

"It’s very serious. I did, I confirmed it. It’s fine. They asked me if I was happy and I said yes and they just ran with it. Y’all know how it is. When you’re in love and you feel secure with it, once you start talking, the floodgates are opened."

#ForeverKindaLove 💋💋💋

So, huge congrats to this duo! Ah. 


We’ll be anxiously awaiting the big day and, of course, following along the way.
