Taraji P. Henson wants to go “somewhere really exotic” for her honeymoon.

The Proud Mary star is set to marry retired American football player Kelvin Hayden on April 4, 2020, and has said that after her nuptials she wants to head somewhere she’s never been before.

She said: “[We’re] looking for somewhere really exotic. He travels a lot and so do I. We are looking for a place that neither of us have been.”

The actress then said they might end up in Italy and joked she might even “be Italian” because she’s obsessed with wine and pasta.

She added: “I think I might be Italian. No seriously. I love wine, I love pasta and I love a good siesta — that’s the time when you drink all your wine.”

The “Empire” star and her fiancé are planning on marrying in wine country next year, as Henson says that’s where they “fell in love.”

Speaking to “Entertainment Tonight,” she said: “That is where he said he fell in love with me. We both went to the wine country, and it was our first time together at the same time. He had never been, I had never been, and I did feel him fall in love.

“I was like, ‘GOT HIM’. Ladies, if you want him to pop the question, take him to the wine country.”

Henson — who has son Marcell Johnson, 25, with late high school sweetheart William Johnson — recently confirmed her wedding date, and said she plans on tying the knot in a dress designed by Click here to see.
