Has Taraji tied the knot?
Taraji P. Henson is a talented actress and author, and she might be a wife now as well. The star of Empire got engaged to former NFL player Kelvin Hayden earlier this year, but fans are speculating that the couple has tied the knot already. Hayden retired from the NFL in 2014, and he won a championship with the Indianapolis Colts in 2006. His latest trophy may be his new queen.
Taraji hasn’t shared any wedding photos, nor has she confirmed the marriage herself. Rumors started to circulate online last week when the actress went on a spontaneous trip with Hayden to Anguilla. A group of their close friends a family accompanied them. Media Take Out reported that the two got married during the trip, although their findings are unconfirmed. The speculation increased when Taraji posted an Instagram Story over the weekend where she refers to Hayden as “hubbybear.”
Taraji spoke with ET about the engagement briefly back in May. “I think he was trying to wait, and he couldn't wait, 'cause he had the ring, and I guess it was burning a hole in his pocket,” she explained. “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.”
