Taraji P. Henson is sporting some new bling!

The Empire actress has reason to celebrate after getting engaged to former NFL star, Kelvin Hayden.

The 47-year-old has been very private regarding her relationship, but revealed during a podcast of Essence’s Yes, Girl!: “I’m happy in my personal life. Finally, it has happened to me! 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. And no one would really know that, because I don’t blast my info like that, but I’m very happy.”

During a Mother’s Day celebration (Taraji has a 24-year-old son), Kelvin popped the question, and she, of course, said yes.

Congrats, Cookie!
