( 4UMF NEWS ) 'Empire' Stars Engaged:

It’s an Empire engagement but it’s for real.

The hit show’s stars Grace Gealey and Trai Byers are officially engaged, according to People.

Gealey plays “Anika Calhoun” on the show, known to many viewers as “Boo Boo Kitty” – a nickname given to her by Taraji P. Henson’s character “Cookie.”

Gealey had been rumored to be dating the 33-year-old Byers, whose character “Andre Lyon” is Calhoun’s soon-to-be stepson on the show.

Byers showed his full-out bias for Gealey when asked who he would choose between her and Tarji’s character “Cookie.” Byers told Essence Live:

There’s something about the realness of Anika. She’s been in a relationship with this man for five years. She’s the head of A&R because she’s smart and educated and really worked her way up. Some of the circumstances she’s going through seem to really hit hard in my core in regard to what relationships should be and how they fall apart.
