Cryptically the movie veteran added “#4/4/20” which many presumed to be their wedding date.

As well as a glittering acting career, Henson has also forged ahead with her humanitarian work.

The Hidden Figures star founded a nonprofit organization in memory of her late father.

The Boris Lawrence Henson Foundation aims to erase the stigma surrounding mental health in the African American community.

In June, she hosted the foundation’s inaugural “Can We Talk?” Conference and Benefit Dinner In Washington, D.C.

The event raised money to provide free therapy sessions for those in need. 

“Mental illness is a huge issue in the black community. The suicide rate of young people has doubled in the last 15 years, this is a national crisis,” Henson said in a statement at the time.

“We are working to normalizing the conversation in our communities at a younger age to eradicate the stigma. We have to start somewhere – and I believe openly talking about it is a good place to start.”

Boris Lawrence Henson died in 2006 at the age of 58 after battling liver cancer. 

“My dad fought in the Vietnam War for our country, returned broken, and received little to no physical or emotional support,” Henson wrote in her 2016 memoir Around the Way Girl. 

“I stand now in his absence, committed to offering support to African Americans who face trauma daily, simply because they are black.”

Meanwhile the talented actress will be back this fall for the sixth and final season of Fox’s TV series Empire. She will reprise her Golden – Globe winning role of Cookie Lyon opposite Terrence Howard as her hip hop mogul ex Lucious Lyon.
