Taraji P. Henson is revealing the details of how Kelvin Hayden asked her to be his wife!
“It was Mother’s Day. I was filming in Atlanta. I told him, I said, ‘I’m going to come for Mother’s Day.’ I [was] going to fly my son out because his birthday is always on or around Mother’s Day,” Henson said to Jimmy Fallon during an appearance on the Tonight Show. “So I go and apparently he had spoken to [my son] Marcel already. Marcel knew. He took me to the restaurant where we had our first date.”
The Empire star said that she actually had no idea what was going on.
“So I get back in the back room and there’s a violinist playing ‘Adorn’ by Miguel, which is one of our favorite songs, and I go, ‘When has [Ronald] been into instruments?’ So I turn around. I’m putting two and two together. I see a photographer… and I turn around and he’s already down on one knee,” Henson revealed. “Of course I’m crying and gushing. My lashes come off [and] they look like a spider on the floor. And then the rest is history.”
Henson has not set a date, but she says that the ceremony will be totally stress free!
