Taraji P. Henson was completely shocked by Kelvin Hayden’s marriage proposal.
The Academy-Award nominated actress, 47, says Hayden made dinner plans at a restaurant where they had their first date, but she didn’t quite catch on until later.
“I didn’t put it together,” she quipped to Entertainment Tonight on Monday. “I didn’t put it together until we went into the party room after we ate, and I saw a violinist.”
Hayden, 34, who played in the NFL nine years, tricked Henson into thinking they were celebrating a friend’s birthday that night as well.
“I go back there and I go, ‘[Their friend] Ronald’s not into violins, what’s going on here?’” she laughed. “And as I’m putting the dots together, I turn around, he’s on his knee and then the river of tears started and my lashes ended up on the floor.”
Now the wedding planning begins.
“People are hitting me up,” she said. “It’s starting to get overwhelming and we’re thinking, we’re talking a year from now, and I know how fast that’s going to go, so it’s a lot. I’m trying to just enjoy being blissfully engaged for a minute.”
The pair has been quietly dating since 2015.
