It wasn't until late December 2017 that Henson addressed their longtime relationship publicly.

"I said yes y'all!", Henson wrote, sharing an Instagram photo of her engagement ring near a dessert plate of cake and chocolate-covered strawberries, with "Congratulations" written on the plate.

As for how the surprise proposal went down, Taraji shared, "He took me to the restaurant where we had our first date in Chicago... and we walked by the table we sat at and I said, 'Babe, you remember?'".

When asked why she made a decision to confirm the romance recently, Taraji told E!

Earlier this year, Henson revealed she had been in a relationship with the sports star for two years.

"He was trying to wait until my birthday", she added. She told the hosts, that's just not her style. "I'm making an attempt to only get pleasure from being blissfully engaged for a minute".

"I think that he did a wonderful job", said Terrence Howard, who plays Henson's onscreen husband, Lucious Lyon. "She had no [idea], and next thing you know, he was on his knees and she was just crying..."

"When good people find each other, they should be together".

"Mom's Day is a threesome for me", she gushed to the outlet. No one would really know that because I don't really blast my info like that.

However, Smollett warned the the Lyon pride takes their protectiveness of Henson seriously, laughing, "We always gonna have our eye on you, Kelvin! Her heart is safe".

Empire airs Wednesdays (eight p.m. ET) on Fox.
