Empire co-stars Trai Byers and Grace Gealey may be involved in some serious drama on the hit series, but the pair have found love in real life.
Onscreen, Gealey plays Terrence Howard’s ex-fiancee, while Byers portrays the actor’s son, Andre Lyon, but the two have eyes for no one but each other offscreen.
Gealey celebrated her 31st birthday on Sunday July 26th and boyfriend Byers wanted to make the day all the more special by popping the question. “He surprised her on her birthday,” a source tells Us Weekly, who broke the news. “He popped the question and she was totally surprised and elated. She can’t stop looking at the ring! They celebrated all night.”
Byers and Gealey both shared snaps from the birthday festivities, but made no mention of the engagement.
We previously reported that the two stars were rumored to have been dating, and just 3 short months later, it seems that the pair has realized their ready to tie the knot!
Congrats to the attractive couple!
