Taraji P. Henson reveals details about her upcoming wedding

She said: “I’m taking the summer off. It’s too late! A wedding you have to plan in a year… I’m just going to take this summer and be normal, take a vacation – a couple, a few – I have a girlfriends’ trip coming up, then me and my fiancé have to do something.”

Before settling down with Hayden, the “Empire” star was a single mother to Johnson and moved to LA with him when she finished college in order to pursue her dreams.

Speaking about the decision to start her acting dream despite her hardships, she said previously: “In your 20s, you’re not scared. You feel invincible. I was an artist with a dream, and now that I was a mother I felt like it was do or die. Being a parent is what kept me focused. I didn’t go to the clubs, even though they say that’s how you’re supposed to network. I have common sense, and nothing about that seemed right to me. What networking happens at a club where people are inebriated? Tell me, what contracts are being signed? That’s stupid. I knew what I had to offer; I just had to find somebody to hear me. Anytime I felt scared, I’d call my dad.”
