Taraji P. Henson teamed up with the show My Houzz and PEOPLE to pull off a major surprise for her stepmother!
The Empire star says that she wanted to bless her stepmom Angie Henson with the gift of a home makeover because of how she changed her late father’s life.
“I met my step mom Angie when I was 16. She just made my dad a better man,” Henson says in a new episode of My Houzz that premiered exclusively with PEOPLE. “My dad was just lost. He was homeless at one time when I was really young. She stepped into his life and she was everything he needed. I was so happy. I just loved her right away.”
