The "Empire" star announced the news on her Instagram account Monday, writing in a caption: "I said yes y’all!!! He started with the Cartier love bracelet BUT that was my #Mothersday gift and then he dropped to his knee and I almost passed out!!!"

Henson, 47, added, "She is officially off the market and she is sooooooooooooo HAPPY!!!!!!"

She went on, "I’m not the type to blast my personal business, but you know, I think that it’s important for people to know that I’m happy. I’m very, very happy. I just am. We’ve been together for two years. And no one would really know that, because I don’t blast my info like that, but I’m very happy."
