"He said, "My friend Ronald, it's his birthday. he's going to have a get-together in this little party room", Taraji recalled her beau had said. "He started with the Cartier love bracelet but that was my Mother's Day gift and then he dropped to his knee and I nearly passed out!" she captioned a shot of her new bling.
Fans rushed to congratulate the star, with one gushing: "I love you taraji and i am super happy for you i can't say it enough love is an fantastic thing". "I knew, I just didn't know when he was going to pop the question", she smiled.
"I've never known any person that she's worked with that's ever been able to go on a date with her, you know", Howard said. "And as I'm putting the dots together, I turn around, he's on his knee and then the river of tears just started and my lashes ended up on the floor".
Taraji, who's a mum to 24-year-old son Marcel from a previous relationship, revealed the proposal was the flawless end to Mother's Day, which was celebrated on Sunday in the US. "It's not too big".
Henson, who revealed the engagement took place on Monday, said the erstwhile footballer gifted her a bracelet for Mother's Day. "It's just flawless. He did great".
"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", said Henson. "I'm trying to just enjoy being blissfully engaged for a minute". No one would really know that because I don't really blast my info like that. "He loves me for me".
