You might know them as Andre and Anika (or Boo-Boo Kitty) on Fox’s hit show “Empire,” but in real life they’re Trai Byers and Grace Gealey. And they’re reportedly engaged.

Byers, a Kansas City, Kan., native, apparently proposed to Gealey while celebrating her 31st birthday Sunday.

According to Us Weekly, Byers “totally surprised” Gealey, who couldn’t stop admiring her ring as the two celebrated throughout the night.

Although the duo has not confirmed the news, Byers called it an “unforgettable night” in an Instagram post dedicated to his lady Monday.

Speculation of their offscreen romance began last spring when the two were seen attending a wedding together.

Cheers to the happy couple and a happy, healthy empire of their own.

Also, let’s not forget season two of “Empire” returns September 23. Here’s a trailer, in case you haven’t seen it yet:
