After only confirming that she has been dating Kelvin for two years during an episode of Essence's podcast Yes, Girl! in December, Taraji shared tiny details of her relationship with E! News in January.

Sharing why she decided to confirm her relationship, the 47-year-old said: “It wasn’t even about talking about my life, he just asked me if I was happy and I said, ‘I’m very happy’ and they just ran with it.”
