We don’t know much about Taraji P. Henson and her relationship with her now-fiancé Kelvin Hayden because she was very intentional about keeping it under wraps until she was share about their commitment to one another. And in the months before he proposed to her, and now that she’s proudly his fiancee, she’s been sharing more about what brought them together.
In promotion of “Empire” and her new mental health foundation that seeks to help the Black community, The Boris Lawrence Henson Foundation, Henson also managed to sneak in a good piece of advice about love and romantic relationships with men as she explained how she knew Hayden was the one.
See what she had to say below.
“I knew he was the one when we met but you know guys get goofy and crazy. And so we had this moment and I shut him down for four months. And he fought. I mean, he was relentless. He made three different emails. And you know ladies, have you ever broke up with a guy and you wish he’d come to the door and fight for you? He did it. And I said, ‘That’s the one.’
My friends would always say, ‘You’re too hard. Why are you so hard on men?’ I say, ‘Because I’m protecting my heart. I’m protecting me.’ And if he’s about it, he will fight for it. And they saw it come true. They were like, ‘Oh girl, okay we’re taking a note from Taraji boo.’
You have to. You have to be willing to risk it all and walk away from it all. And if he’s about that. He will come and find you and fix it.”
