Empire star Grace Gealey ended up with a new fiance after accepting co-star Trai Byer’s (who plays Andre Lyon in the series) shock proposal as she turned 31 on Sunday July 26th.
Grace Gealey who plays the role of Anika Calhoun, Lucious Lyon’s former fianceé, in the soap opera, is said to have been grinning from ear-to-ear after the hunk got down on one knee and asked for her hand in marriage on her birthday.
‘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.’
It is certainly clear the pair were enjoying a very special night together, as her other half posted an Instagram picture which showed them revelling together and some of their other co-stars.
The 32-year-old captioned the image: ‘Had so much fun celebrating @gracegealey’s life!! Happy Birthday to an exquisite human being.’
