The Empire star and former Chicago Bears player Hayden were photographed walking along a beach hand-in-hand in Miami on Monday (28Dec15).

Henson has yet to comment on the reports, but she recently spoke to Harper’s Bazaar about her ideal man.

“He is funny, has personality, he doesn’t take himself too seriously,” she said. “He needs to be confident in who he is, confident to let me be who I am. And let me shine, you know? My light is only going to enhance his light.”
