Grace Gealey and Trai Byers

Us Weekly reports exclusively that 'Empire' stars Grace Gealy and Trai Byers are engaged.

Didn't they just start dating a couple of months ago? Who gets engaged after a couple of months?

Grace Gealey Trai Byers

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.

I thought they batted for the other team too.

      Even though you are acting, don't know if I could take my boo kissing up on someone on set.

    • Anna Maria

      Sandra makes up lies on people for fun. I think she is the one who bats for the other team.

    • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

      Because milk gets sour.

    • Anna Maria

      She doesn't know how to be happy for anyone. She pokes holes in EVERYONE. Also, have you noticed that whenever any couple breaks up she says the same thing: "the dopamine has left them." Everything is dopamine with her.

    • Anna Maria

      DOPAMINE!

    • L.T.L. Since 2007

      Congrats, I guess.
      But I really couldn't care less about either of them until Sept 23rd.....

    • Anna Maria

      Sandra is the most cynical blogger in the US. She gets down on everyone. I wonder if she has ever had a successful relationship?

    • shell

      or if they are happy and together its just "the dopamine" they dont really love or like each other. Its the chemicals in the brain..smh

    • iWasteTime

      lmaooooo!

    • harley_quinn2.0

      Congrats to them. They are a nice looking couple.

    • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

      Congrats to them! Love is a wonderful thing. Lately a lot of folk been trying to impose a timeline on when folk supposed to get engaged/married. We do know that's a personal decision don't we? Ain't no specific timeline on matters of the heart.

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      Nice looking couple.

    • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      Did you take the time to write my posts on Dopamine? I never said all couples who marry quickly are under the influence.

    • aRoth

      New post

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      SR making her way up the comments...ooooo you in troublleeeee....***whispers*** I got your back tho.

    • Smartypants

      Awwww! So cute. Love them on the show.

      Being engaged is a wonderful time. It shows you who's Facebook happy for you v. Who's HAPPY for you.

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      Wrong, dear. I said the Dopamine lasts up to 2 years. IF they are still together after that time period, it is real love. Maybe you should try Googling Dopamine's effects on the brain.

    • Its Me

      Me TOO. I literally dropped into someone Mary Kay party. Copped a lip gloss. Was like can I do Satin Hands? And bounced. ??Dub20 was like you so daggone RUDE ma! ?Whaaaa? Hell I bought something? ?

    • Smartypants

      This! I love hearing love stories <3

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      It is difficult for lesbians to maintain stable relationships for the simple fact that lesbianism goes against nature.

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      I see no problems...thats the only product I would buy but the seller be so worrisome.

    • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

      Some chick named Lola. Guess she work at this lounge.

    • iWasteTime

      I said that Saturday while watching the allstar game!

    • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

      Some gal named Lola.

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      This is why I didn't want to open the gates.

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      Why are you here then? Don't let me keep you here.

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      LOLA

    • SummerBaby

      A lounge?! No diss to lounge workers or nothing. Good luck to them #shrug

    • ramosyo

      The board hasn't been the same since!

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      Brittney is typical of a Dopamine addict. Watch how quickly they move in together and announce their "engagement". This will end badly for both of them.

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      Now this I agree with...How are you going from engaged to leaving you wife to dating someone....

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      She a stripper?

    • PettyEyezPrime

      My grandparents. Gpa seen Gma getting off bus then in next building over from window. Said he was going to marry her. He was 20, she was 21. His mom signed on that dotted line after a few months and 58 years later (in Sept) they still here. My idols!

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      B/c of a joke?

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      And she professed her "love" for Glory even after Glory went on national TV and said she wasn't a lesbian. A judge should appoint a legal guardian for Brittney.

    • http://browngirltightcurl.blogspot.com nellboogie

      Do it...I'm having fun with mine, it is a commitment so be prepared for that...

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      Serious Question: I went to an all girl college...I watched A LOT of girls play gay and actual gay women fall for it..Why is that?

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      Exactly. Success stories are rare. The reality is the divorce rate is still over 60%, because people jump into relationships based on their feelings. Love is never about your feelings. Feelings fade. Real Love lasts a lifetime.

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      You act like I'm making up the facts about Dopamine. I'm just trying to be helpful so you understand why some people can't maintain a stable relationship.

      Please read "The Science of Love" to understand why everything you do or feel is controlled by brain chemicals.

      Stage 2: Attraction

      This is the amazing time when you are truly love-struck and can think of little else. Scientists think that three main neurotransmitters are involved in this stage; adrenaline, dopamine and serotonin.

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      Successful stories are nice, but the reality is most marriages end in divorce. Good luck to you.

    • Anna Maria

      Could there also be other factors such as it irritates others who only believe in heterosexuality?

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      Please read "The Science of Love" to understand why some relationships last > 10 years while your relationships don't last 10 months.

      http://www.youramazingbrain.org/lovesex/sciencelove.htm

      Dopamine

      Helen Fisher asked newly ‘love struck’ couples to have their brains examined and discovered they have high levels of the neurotransmitter dopamine. This chemical stimulates ‘desire and reward’ by triggering an intense rush of pleasure. It has the same effect on the brain as taking cocaine!

      Fisher suggests “couples often show the signs of surging dopamine: increased energy, less need for sleep or food, focused attention and exquisite delight in smallest details of this novel relationship” .

    • Shira Harding-James

      They are such a stunning couple. I've watched them in interviews and they are just beautiful. I'm happy for them, sometimes time isn't of the essence for some,SANDRA! . I wish them well!

    • Full Monty

      Oh geez every relationship is not the same and you can't categorize with simple theories. You can know someone for years on years and marry them and still not really know them. We don't know how long they were dating before they officially came out as a couple just like Ciara and Russell. Every couple just like every situation is different. Good luck to the couple!

    • shell

      well i just read your post up top and you stated our relationships (your readers) only last 10 months which again isnt truth. so again you are never truly happy for people because you don't believe in love of two people. i dont need to google dopamine ive been in relationships and i get it. your just a negative nancy thats all

      I'm sure Trai Byers is trying to get married ASAP to escape Lee Daniels' clutches. He's the only male actor who has successfully avoided being captured in a pic receiving the lustful obsessive stare from Lee Daniels. Almost ever man that Lee D. is in a pic with he's loving with his eyes. :)

      Met at a bar, had sex on our first date (and most nights thereafter!), married a year later, still kicking it 17 years later.

      Dopamine fades, and lust will come and go but true love and friendship never dies.

    • aRoth

      Yes it will. I just don't want anything SHAVED. Short, but not shaved, if that makes sense?

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      No. I mean stripper.

    • http://browngirltightcurl.blogspot.com nellboogie

      Makes perfect sense...they have different guards to take it down to different lengths... I constantly switch between the 5 and 6 guard depending upon what look I'm going for that month.

    • aRoth

      I want a Toni Braxton cut. I hope they didn't take clippers or guards to her head. It doesn't look like it. #scissorsonly

    • http://browngirltightcurl.blogspot.com nellboogie

      Yep. I had that cut first and she used scissors and a razor in the top for movement. I loved it but I'm short which means I have a short neck and those wisps on the back of my pixie-cut kept flipping up and driving me crazy! LOL! If you're on Instagram, check out thecutlife. Dope pics of all sorts of fly cuts...

      Not sure but the girl who is dope on IG is Khimandi. You should be able to view on IG by searching for her name...she's not private. She may go under this same name on FB. I hope it helps. I think you will find her work super dope if you are a fan of the Toni Braxton cut...
