The ‘Empire’ costars, Grace Gealey (Anika) and Trai Byers (Andre Lion) got engaged after Trai, 32, popped the question to Grace while celebrating her 31st birthday on July 26 in Chicago.

“He surprised her on her birthday,” a source tells Us Weekly. “He popped the question and she was totally surprised and elated. She can’t stop looking at the ring! They celebrated all night.” This is so sweet! Trai and Grace celebrated the engagement and her birthday with their costars. While an official announcement has yet to be made, both Trai and Grace gushed their love for one another on Instagram.

Trai shared a pics of their delicious looking meal along with a cute pic of him and Grace. He wrote: “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.” It sure seemed unforgettable! Grace also shared a collage of pics from the big night. What an amazing birthday!

Trai and Grace reportedly began dating since meeting on the FOX television series. There was an instant attraction between them, and though their costars knew about their romance, they publicly kept things on the down low. “Trai and Grace are super serious,” a source told US in March. “They started dating in the middle of the season and are completely in love.”

Congrats to them.
