Taraji P. Henson is officially off the market!

The actress announced her engagement via Instagram Monday morning, showing off her brand-new ring.


“I said yes y’all!!! He started with the Cartier love bracelet BUT that was my #Mothersday gift and then he dropped to his knee and I almost passed out!!!” she captioned a shot of her new bling. “#sheisofficiallyoffthemarket and she is sooooooooooooo HAPPY!!!!!! #GODIS,” the star wrote under the caption.

As E! Online notes, Henson had been quietly dating former NFL player Kelvin Hayden for two years before he popped the big question. But it looks as though the two kept their private life very private, while they were blossoming all along.

Congrats to the happy couple!
