There, the "Hidden Figures" actress talked about her recently launched haircare line coupled with having her hands full with shooting the last season of "Empire."


She also talked about her upcoming wedding to former NFL player, Kelvin Hayden, which has been shifted.

Henson told Kryst that the initial date, which was the fourth of April, proved to have some weather hitches after the wedding planner informed her about the possibility of rain, so the time was rescheduled. 


The "Acrimony Star" however, did not reveal the new date as she went on to talk about the final season of the FOX-produced TV series, "Empire."

According to MADAME NOIRE, Taraji and Kelvin met at a party organized by her makeup artist Ashunta Sheriff in 2017.

Sheriff's had thrown the party so that Henson would meet eligible bachelors, and her plan had worked. While speaking about their first meeting, Taraji jokingly said:

"We shook hands, and I swear I heard angels. That's the joke I tell. But he just felt right."

"I said yes, y'all!!!" "He started with the Cartier love bracelet, BUT that was my #Mothersday gift, and then he dropped to his knee, and I almost passed out!!!"



Even though Henson's wedding has been shifted, her excitement and happiness can't be contained. 

According to ROLLING OUT, Taraji sat on the set of "The Late Night Show with Stephen Colbert" where she shared details of her upcoming wedding ceremony.
