Taraji P. Henson Is Engaged! Check Out Her Gorgeous Solitaire Diamond
Taraji P. Henson just got the surprise of a lifetime! During Mother’s Day yesterday, while other celebs were waxing poetic about their moms, wives, and partners, the mother of one was not only received 2016’s most googled piece of jewelry in the world (aka the Cartier Love bracelet), she also got a little extra something… in the form of an engagement ring!
The Empire star took to Instagram this morning to share the good news. Posting a shot of the gorgeous solitaire diamond, she wrote, “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!!!”
