Grace and Trai Byers met on the set of Empire in 2015. They got engaged in the fall of 2015 and married on April 14, 2016, in a private ceremony on the beach on Grand Cayman Island. They are now set to expand their empire.

The Empire actress revealed the happy news on Instagram on October 14. She and her husband of six years are expecting their first child together. In the picture, the couple is posed on the red carpet on the opening night of Trai’s Broadway show The Piano Lesson.

Grace is wearing a coral halter-neck gown and is cradling her growing belly in the first photo. Both parents-to-be have their hands lovingly on her baby bump in the second photo. “Happy Opening Night on your Broadway Debut, my beloved King,” she wrote.

Words absolutely fail when it comes to describing how deeply and overwhelmingly proud we are of you, @traibyers. What a night!


Producer Devon Franklin commented, “My brother was a revelation last night!!! Congratulations!!!! I’m so excited to be an uncle!!!!!! Love y’all forever and a day!!” And actress Teyonah Parris added, “CONGRATULATIONS to you both on the amazing journey ahead to parenthood!!” On October 13, the Byers family was celebrating not one, but two joyous occasions.

Trai made his Broadway debut in the revival of August Wilson’s The Piano Lesson, alongside Samuel L. Jackson, Danielle Brooks, and John David Washington. Grace has also kept herself busy after Empire’s six-season run concluded in 2020. Since 2021, she has appeared in Amazon Prime’s Harlem. She also appears in HBO Max’s Phoenix.

So far, neither the due date nor the gender of their future bundle of joy has been announced. The pair has a lot to be proud of, both personally and professionally. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
