Ask any woman, including Kim Kardashian what would be the best birthday gift and chances are almost all of them would say an engagement ring, other than those that would of course want a Birkin bag.


Empire star Grace Gealey is now among those lucky ladies who has just possibly celebrated the most unforgettable birthday, after her co-star and boyfriend Trai Byers asked for her hand in marriage on her 31st birthday.


The marriage proposal came just months after the couple were seen together at public appearances initially sparking dating rumors back in March.


The couple was joined by their Empire co-stars to celebrate the special night. A source told Us Weekly; “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.”


Trai Byers who plays Andre Lyon on the hit Fox TV show shared some memories of the night via his Instagram page, but no mention or sight of the special gift he got his now fiance.



Let’s be honest, this is one smoking hot couple and we could not be happier for them. Can just imagine how cute their babies will be, but with the success of Empire growing we’re sure we’ll have a while to wait before we see those cuties.


The island beauty will resume her role as Anika Calhoun aka Boo Boo Kitty as her archenemy Cookie Lyon played by Taraji P. Henson so affectionately calls her. Empire is set to return for it’s second season September 23rd, we don’t know about you but the countdown has definitely started on our end.


Congratulations to the happy couple!
