Taraji P. Henson got more than a card on Mother's Day.

The 47-year-old Empire actress got engaged to former Super Bowl-winning cornerback Kelvin Hayden.

Henson posted a photo on Instagram showing off her diamond ring. She related that the day started with a Cartier love bracelet before the 34-year-old cornerback dropped to his knee. She wrote, "I said yes y'all!"

Henson has a 24-year-old son from a previous relationship.

Hayden intercepted a pass for a 56-yard touchdown during Super Bowl XLI, in which his Indianapolis Colts beat the Chicago Bears 29-17. He also played for the Atlanta Falcons and finished his NFL career with the Bears in 2014.
