Grace Gealey will never forget her 31st birthday. ‘Empire’ star got engaged to her co-star, Trai Byers. If you are still wondering why her birthday was unforgettable, it’s because he proposed to heron her 31st birthday, July 26.

According to sources, Byers threw a party for Grace at one of Chicago’s finest restaurants, Kinmont, and while our birthday girl, who plays the role of Anika Calhoun, head of Empire Entertainment A&R in Fox’s hit series, thought it’d only be two of them, she was surprised to see approximately twenty of her closest friends and family members.

Trai, who plays Andre Leon in ‘Empire’, posted a collage on Instagram from the party showing festivities that included dinner and drinks. He captioned the picture, “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.”


The 33-year-old actor decided to pop the question on Grace’s birthday, and made all arrangements for her surprise bash. Moreover, seeing these photos, it’s clearly visible that the newly engaged diva was totally surprised and ecstatic.

A source told Us Weekly, “She can’t stop looking at the ring! They celebrated all night.” Grace Gealey was spotted flaunting a stunning diamond ring at her birthday party multiple times.
