Taraji P. Henson can barely contain her excitement in this Instagram post. Alongside a photograph of her sparkling engagement ring and a congratulatory cake, Taraji wrote: "I said yes y'all!" "And as I'm putting the dots together, I turn around, he's on his knee and then the river of tears just started and my lashes ended up on the floor".
In December previous year, Henson confirmed that she is in a relationship with the former American football cornerback. "And so I told him - I'm in Atlanta right now, filming 'What Men Want" - and I told him, I said, 'I'm gonna come home for Mother's Day, ' and he said, 'Come home!' And I noticed the look in his eyes, but I didn't put it together".
Henson confirmed her relationship with the football star back in December, opening up on Essence's "Yes, Girl!" podcast about keeping her two-year relationship under wraps for so long.
"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 just didn't know when. You're too fly. You're too unbelievable.' I was like, 'I don't know.' She's like, 'You're not gonna meet him at home. I'm very, very happy. No one would really know that because I don't really blast my info like that. In any case, we wish the two a lifetime of happiness.
According to her Instagram, not only did she get a diamond Cartier bracelet to commemorate the occasion - but she also got a diamond ring.
