While we all anxiously await the premiere of Empire’s second season this fall, a real-life love connection has gone to the next level for two of the shows starring cast members.
Grace Gealey and Trai Byers, aka “Boo-Boo Kitty” and “Andre Lyon” will reportedly be heading down the aisle sometime in the near future. According to US Weekly reports, Trai proposed to Grace during her lavish 31st birthday dinner celebration with friends and family over the weekend.
Although neither Trai nor his new fiance Grace have spoken out officially since he popped the question, they did each share a few photos from the memorable evening on social media.
Without going into much detail, both Grace and Trai described the evening as “unforgettable.”
The real-life couple played the roles of future stepmother and stepson on last season of the show, but it was soon revealed that their off-screen connection was one of another kind when they began showing up to events together and were even photographed out on several dates by paparazzi.
With season 2 just under two months away, it looks like Grace and Trai will certainly have their hands full with planning a wedding in their personal lives and flourishing on television’s most popular show in their professional lives!
