Just married! Empire Stars Trai Byers & Grace Gealey Tie The Knot

Empire stars Trai Byers and Grace Gealey have tied the knot.
The 32-year-old onscreen eldest son of Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard) wed his 31-year-old girlfriend, who plays Lucious's ex-fiancée Anika Calhoun.
TMZ reported that the duo exchanged 'I do's' in a private ceremony at a mansion on Grand Cayman Island on Thursday, with a very limited guest list which reportedly did not include any of their Empire co-stars.

The short, five table, guest list was limited to close friends and relatives, who dined on steak and lobster during the following celebration.
Following the ceremony the happy couple - and guests - celebrated dancing to hip-hop, disco, and reggae.

Trai proposed to Grace on her 31st birthday this past July, with Us Weekly reporting that he 'popped the question and she was totally surprised and elated. She can’t stop looking at the ring! They celebrated all night.'
Prior to their engagement, rumors of a relationship between the two Empire stars had circulated for months.

Grace seemed to first confirm the engagement while appearing on an October episode of FABLife, hosted by Tyra Banks and Chrissy Teigen.
She had been speaking about her thoughts on relationships with co-workers, sharing that she believed it was less likely to be trouble if you established it wasn't a fling or 'frivolous and fleeting.'
'[You have] to have the maturity to say that if this doesn't work out, you're not going to you know, throw staplers,' she said.

This prompted Tyra to ask about Grace's relationship with co-star Trai, after which she flashed her engagement ring, noting: 'For real, for real. Not a fling!'
And when Tyra asked if the actress had told anyone the big news yet, she hinted that her FABLife appearance was the first announcement, quipping: 'I just did!'
The newlyweds star on Fox's smash hit empire, which airs Wednesdays at 9pm.
