Surprise! Empire costars Grace Gealey and Trai Byers are engaged, multiple sources confirm exclusively to Us Weekly. The happy news comes just months after Us exclusively revealed in March that the pair were dating.


Byers made the proposal extra special, asking her for her hand in marriage on her 31st birthday on Sunday, July 26. “He surprised her on her birthday,” a source tells Us. “He popped the question and she was totally surprised and elated. She can’t stop looking at the ring! They celebrated all night.”

Gealey and Byers celebrated their engagement and her birthday with fellow costars and both took to Instagram to express their love for one another.

“Had so much fun celebrating @gracegealey's life!! Happy Birthday to an exquisite human being! Thank you @kinmontchicago for hosting us. Amazing spot, wonderful food, UNFORGETTABLE night,” Byers captioned a photo collage on Monday, July 27.

Just last week, Byers celebrated his 32nd birthday.
