“Empire” star, Taraji P. Henson, was pictured cuddling up to her fiancé and looked very much in love. The actress also recently revealed new details about her upcoming wedding.


The Shade Room shared the photo of Henson and her man, ex-NFL player, Kelvin Hayden sharing a special moment. In the close-up shot, Hayden placed his head on Henson’s chest.

The “Acrimony” star wore a white top and threw a mischievous look at the camera while appearing to kiss Hayden’s forehead. On the image was written, “Baby made it!!!” along with a couple of red kiss emojis.



In a recent appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” the 48-year-old star couldn’t hide the excitement for her latest project, a Disney animated film called “Ralph Breaks The Internet.”  

But what had fans more interested was what she had to say about her upcoming nuptials with Hayden. After revealing that her fiancé traveled to Dubai to get her ring, Henson said their wedding is still a long way off.


"I was pressuring myself because everyone was like 'when is the date, when is the date?'... And finally I was like, you know, I'm in control, we're in control, so we're going to wait. When we have a date, we’ll let everyone know."

The “Think Like A Man” actress also said she wants an intimate wedding with only her closest family and friends. According to her, Hayden, 35, is fine with whatever she wants.

“He’s just like, ‘Baby, whatever you want. As long as you’re happy,’” Henson added.



Although Henson now claims not to have a date in mind, she said in September that the wedding would be in the summer of 2019. While sitting as a guest on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," she said:

“It’ll be next summer, end of June, early July. All my family, all his family are close friends. Small, intimate”



The Hollywood celeb first went public with her relationship last year when she appeared on the “Yes, Girl!” podcast by Essence.

Henson disclosed:

“I’m happy in my personal life. Finally it has happened to me! 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.”



In May, Henson was surprised by Hayden at what she thought was a friend's dinner. The former Chicago Bears cornerback got down on his knee and asked his woman to marry him.

Alongside a photo of her huge diamond, Henson announced on Instagram: "I said yes Y'all!!!"

Since then, the lovebirds have become more open with their relationship and regularly feature on each other’s social media pages.



About two months ago, Henson was plagued with pregnancy rumors and wasted no time in shooting them down.

The “Proud Mary” lead lady, who already has a grown son from a previous relationship, explained that her fiancé also has three kids who “aren’t teenagers yet” and assured fans that they were both done having kids.
