What will Cookie think about this?!

EMPIRE stars Grace Gealey (Boo Boo Kitty) and Trai Byers (Andre) have gone off script and gotten engaged.

According to Us Weekly, Byers proposed while celebrating Gealey's 31st birthday on Sunday.

The couple have been quitely dating since March and have been spotted on various red carpets together.

While their love burns hot off screen, on the FOX hit the stars keep their distance as Grace aka Boo Boo Kitty plays the ex-fiance' of Trai's character's father Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard).

Although there's no word when the newly enaged pair will tie the knot, save the date for September 23rd when EMPIRE makes its second season premiere.
