The Empire actress announced the news on Instagram on Monday (14May18) by sharing a close-up picture of the couple holding hands on top of a dinner table, and her diamond sparkler is clearly on display.
'I said yes y'all!' the Emmy favorite wrote in her announcement caption. She says the day started with a Cartier love bracelet before the 34-year-old cornerback dropped to his knee.
Sharing why she chose to confirm her relationship, the 47-year-old said: "It wasn't even about talking about my life, he just asked me if I was happy and I said, "I'm very happy" and they just ran with it". "Finally, it happened to me!" Then, in January, Taraji told "Extra's" AJ Calloway that the relationship is "very serious", which is why she made a decision to finally talk about her private life.
Congratulations to Henson and Hayden on their engagement! We don't hold anything back. But, you know, I think that's important for people to know.
Henson had previously been spotted with Hayden in December 2016 when the two vacationed together in Miami. I'm very, very happy. I just am. We've been together for two years. "But I'm very happy".
She explained: "He's just like, my number one fan, there for support". "What I love is that he doesn't really pay attention to it all". "What I love is that he doesn't really pay attention to it all".
