Is there a new man in Taraji P. Henson‘s life?

The Empire actress was photographed Monday holding hands with NFL player Kelvin Hayden while on vacation in Miami.

In one picture from the romantic getaway, the stars stroll along the beach. Henson wore a colorful Emilio Pucci bikini and matching shorts, accessorized with sunglasses and a Chanel tote, while Hayden showed off his athletic body in red board shorts and a backwards hat.

Hayden, a 32-year-old Chicago native, has previously played football for the Chicago Bears and Indianapolis Colts and is currently a free agent, according to the NFL.

Henson, 45, spoke to Harper’s Bazaar earlier this year about her “type.”

“He is funny, has personality, he doesn’t take himself too seriously,” the Golden Globe nominee 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.”
