Is Taraji P. Henson Pregnant?
That is the rumor that was put out there last week about the 47-year-old actress by multiple sites. However, she decided to refute such claims with the help of social media over the weekend.
While sharing a picture of herself recently at the U.S. Open, Henson wanted to show everyone she’s not hiding a baby bump out here:
Henson is already mother to a 24-year-old son named Marcel. She hasn’t spoken about wanting to have another child, and she just started feeling comfortable enough speaking publicly about her relationship with Hayden.
“I’m happy in my personal life,” she said during a broadcast of the Essence’s Yes, Girl! podcast last year. “Finally it has happened to me!”
“It was all over The Shaderoom anyway,” she continued. “You know, I’m not the type to blast my personal business, but you know, I think that it’s important for people to know that I’m happy. I’m very very happy. I just am. We’ve been together for two years. And no one would really know that because I don’t blast my info like that but I’m very happy.”
Hayden popped the question to the Empire star on Mother’s Day, and Henson said the moment was so emotional her “lashes ended up on the floor.”
And as for when the two will actually tie the knot, Henson said she was going to give herself a year to just focus on being happy with her future husband, minus the stress of all of the planning.
“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.”
So no baby, as of right now at least.
