When Henson broke her silence about their relationship with ESSENCE, she wanted to make one thing clear: things are going really well!

“You know, I’m not the type to blast my personal business, but you know, I think that it’s important for people to know that I’m happy,” said Henson. “I’m very very happy. I just am. We’ve been together for two years. And no one would really know that because I don’t blast my info like that but I’m very happy.”

Over the holidays, Hayden gave Henson a puppy for Christmas and the couple has been spotted globetrotting when the actress isn’t filming.
