Taraji P Henson of 'Empire' Shares Photos with Fiancé Kelvin Hayden Going for Date Night in Chic Looks

Taraji P. Henson is building excitement for her upcoming wedding after sharing new photos with her "husband to be" Kelvin Hayden while heading out for date night.

Brides to be are generally thought to be fussy and stressed out as their big day approaches, but Henson, 49, is changing the narrative.

SLAYING TOGETHER

In recent pictures shared on her Instagram page, the "Empire" star and her retired NFL player beau are the perfect images of laid-back and stress-free.

Henson channeled glamorous chic in a Gucci bomber jacket with puffy sleeves paired with black leggings and glittering gold boots. She also accessorized with a gold cross-body clutch and gold-rimmed oversized shades while wearing her hair blown-out with blond highlights.

LOVE & FASHION

Hayden, on the other hand, looked dapper in a brown coat worn over a white turtleneck and skinny black jeans ripped at the knees. The 36-year-old topped off his ensemble with brown boots, a black hat, and sunglasses.

Henson and Hayden posed for a mirror selfie in one snapshot and leaned into each other for a second, close-up photo.

"Love date nights with my husband to be @kelvinhayden," the actress captioned the post along with the hashtag "We 'bout to be married."

FANS REACT

Henson had fans and celebrity friends getting excited in the comments section as they eagerly wait for the big day.

"Yassss. I betta be invited!!!" actress Niecy Nash gushed while Tisha Campbell chimed in with, "I love y'all!"

"Y'all look amazing together!" added another fan. "Luv the hair and style too. Keep inspiring us with your #blackgirlmagic."

WEDDING BELLS ARE RINGING

Henson and Hayden got engaged in May 2018, but it wasn’t until two months ago that the "Proud Mary" star confirmed their wedding date. She shared some oh-so-cute snaps from their summer boat date and hashtagged the date "4/4/20."

In September, Henson confirmed to Entertainment Tonight that April 4, 2020, is the day she gets married; she also revealed the wedding would take place in California’s wine country.

Henson explained:

"That is where he said he fell in love with me. We both went to the wine country and it was our first time together at the same time. He had never been, I had never been, and I did feel him fall in love."

"Ladies, if you want him to pop the question, take him to the wine country," she joked.

As at the beginning of this year, however, Henson had no wedding date in mind. According to PEOPLE, the Oscar nominee revealed that her work schedule was getting in the way of planning the nuptials.

"I don’t have a date yet," she said at the time. "I'm trying for the summer. I have scripts coming in, you know — you got to strike while the iron is hot — and he is patient."

"We live together, we’re not going anywhere," she added. "But trust me, we are getting married, and soon! It won’t be a 10-year engagement!"
