Despite the fact that they never acknowledged their relationship, Empire" co-stars Grace Gealey and Trai Byers are engaged!
Empire" co-stars, Grace Gealey and Trai Byers, never publicly acknowledged their relationship, but all of that is over as the acting couple are now engaged!
People started asking questions when the cute couple were always spotted hugged up in pictures, interviews, doing solo lunches away from the rest of the cast, and generally having that "we are in love" look.
However, they never publicly stated their feelings for each other until now.
Grace, also known as Anika Calhoun and "boo-boo kitty" by Cookie, celebrated her 31st birthday over the weekend which was where 32-year-old Trai popped the question.
Us Weekly reports:
“He surprised her on her birthday. He popped the question and she was totally surprised and elated. She can’t stop looking at the ring! They celebrated all night.”
Although Grace posted pictures from the special night without mentioning the engagement, Trai dropped a hint while posting his pictures with the caption:
“Had so much fun celebrating @gracegealey's life!! Happy Birthday to an exquisite human being! Thank you @kinmontchicago for hosting us. Amazing spot, wonderful food, UNFORGETTABLE night.”
Coincidentally, Trai and his on-screen wife Kaitlin Doubleday, share the same birthday, which was earlier in the month.
Grace celebrated with them saying:
"The HAPPIEST of BIRTHDAYS to these dolls right hurrrrrrr. Not only do they play husband and wife on TV but they share the same birthday!! Loving, kind, smart, funny - it's such a blessing to have you both in my life. Here's to an upcoming year filled with everything you could possibly dream of and desire. You both deserve the world and more. Love you guys @kaitlindday @traibyers"
Congrats to the newly engaged couple, we wish them all the best.
