Taraji P. Henson is happy in love! After years of their rumored romance, the 47-year-old is confirming she’s in a relationship with former NFL star Kelvin Hayden.


In an interview with Essence’s Yes, Girl! podcast, she told the hosts, “I’m happy in my personal life. Finally it has happened to me!,” when asked about her rumored love life.


Speculation of the couple started two years ago when they were spotted holding hands on the beach in Miami.

Since then several women came forward, claiming to be Hayden’s girlfriend, but it seems the two have gotten past the allegations. The former NFL star even gave Henson an early Christmas gift.


We just love seeing our girl happy!
