Henson Is Engaged To Former NFL Star After Mother's Day Surprise

Taraji P. Henson got more than a card on Mother's Day.

The Empire star shared news Monday that her boyfriend, former National Football League star Kelvin Hayen, proposed to her on Mother's Day.

"He said, "My friend Ronald, it's his birthday. he's going to have a get-together in this little party room", Taraji recalled her beau had said.

So after opening up her Mother's Day gift, a Cartier Love bracelet, the two headed out for a dinner moment she'll never forget.

The 47-year-old was first linked to the former American footballer, 34, in December 2015, after they were spotted holding hands on the beach while on vacation in Florida, but she didn't confirm the relationship until December 2017.

But Taraji is pleased she let the proposal play out as it did, and added she's "very very happy". I didn't put it together until we went into the party room after we ate, and I saw a violinist, 'cause he was trying to say it was his friend's birthday - which it was, on Friday - 'Oh, Ronald's gonna have a little get-together in the back room.' And I was like, 'Aw, that's ideal. "He started with the Cartier love bracelet BUT that was my #Mothersday gift and then he dropped to his knee and I nearly passed out!" The Empire actress - who has a 24-year-old son, Marcel Johnson, from a previous relationship - shared: "I'm happy in my personal life". "It's not too big".

The "Empire" star says it was love at first sight when she met him. "It's just ideal. He did great". "I'm making an attempt to only get pleasure from being blissfully engaged for a minute". I just love her so much.
