Taraji P Henson & boyfriend are engaged

Taraji P. Henson Announces Her Engagement to Kelvin Hayden

Taraji P. Henson said yes to the ring!

On the dining table besides their hands sits a plate which has "congratulations" written in chocolate sauce besides chocolate cake and chocolate-covered strawberries.

Her announcement post on Instagram shows her ring-spotting hand affectionately holding her boyfriend's with a dessert dish providing the ideal background for the heartmelting photo.

"#ForeverKindaLove" is what Taraji captioned the photo of she and Kelvin in their matching Cartier Love bracelets. Aww!

"She continued, "#sheisofficiallyoffthemarket and she is sooooooooooooo HAPPY!"

The Hidden Figures star announced the happy news on her Instagram on Monday, May 14, showing off her exciting new bling.

"I'm very happy. Everything is coming together", the star said in an interview on Essence's podcast "Yes, Girl! Finally it has happened to me!"

She added: "I'm not the type to blast my personal business". I'm happy. I'm very very happy.

Henson and Hayden were first spotted together in 2015 but the actress officially confirmed their romance last December. But, you know, I think that's important for people to know.

The two both have children from previous relationships.

Weeks before he popped the question, Taraji revealed the secret to their relationship, telling "Extra's" Mark Wright, "We're very honest with each other. But I'm very happy". "I just am", she explained.
