Taraji P Henson hosted an 80's themed party to celebrate her 49th birthday, and best believe, her "Empire family" showed up and out. Co-stars Trai Byers and his wife Grace Gealey were at the party and had the clips to show it.
Grace shared a couple of videos where she and her 36-year-old husband show off their moves. The first footage shows the couple dancing in each other's arms before Trai lets Grace go for a spin.
In the second clip, Grace is seen mouthing the lyrics to Color Me Bad's "I Wanna Sex You Up" as she shows off her dance skills to her husband.
The couple continues to personify Black love and fans are here for every single moment of it; as they so rightly explained in the comment section.
One fan commented:
"So nice. I can't wait to have my own Soulmate. God help me.
Another fan, who loved how "real" the couple is, said:
"Still keeping it real. Ain't nothing like seeing stars so natural acting like ordinary people."
There was also a comment from Taraji who was grateful for the couple's appearance at her party. The couple announced they were married on April 2016 via an Instagram post according to E! Online. The then 31-year-old bride captioned the wedding post:
"We're married! God is so good. To all who have extended congrats and well wishes, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Love, Mr. & Mrs. Byers."
The report also states that only fifty guests were invited to share the happy day with the couple. And that the guests danced to hip-hop, disco and reggae music and had their fair share of lobster and steak at the reception.
Grace and Trai began dating after they met on the set of "Empire," a sourcetold
Bustle back in 2015. The sourcesaid
"They started seeing each other during the shooting of the show. There was an instant attraction; people working on the show are aware of it. When they all hang out together, they'll cuddle and give a kiss, but it's nothing obscene."
Grace played the role of "Anika Calhoun" until her death in season four finale while Trai plays "Andre Lyon" on the Fox series "Empire" which is in its final season.
