Their actions are making watchers wonder: is the Empire actress expecting? Here's what we know so far:

1. Bling

The couple got engaged back in May with some gorgeous jewelry. They have been together for two years before their engagement.

2. Experience

Henderson already has a son so she knows the ropes on parenthood. Marcel Johnson is 23 and works as actor. His father was Henson's high school sweetheart, William Lamar Johnson, who was tragically murdered in 2003.

3. Change of Heart?

Back in 2015, Henson told Essence magazine she was done with babies. She told the magazine what she said when her doctor asked her about it, "“At 45, What I’ma do? That baby would come out looking like Benjamin Button! [The doctor] said I had a lot of eggs left. He was all happy like he was giving me good news. He was like, ‘Do you want to have any more? You have plenty of eggs.’ I said, ‘Do you want them because I’m done. Done.’ I’m not starting over with a grown son. I couldn’t imagine doing it at this age. My career wouldn’t allow for it.”

4. Protective

Observers say that Hayden was being awfully attentive to Henderson as the walked through the stands. He was offering her an arm on the steps and generally acting like a mother  or father — hen.

5. Teetotaling

Another big clue to her behavior this weekend was what she wasn’t doing - drinking. She was spotted conspicuously avoiding alcohol during the match, a detail that definitely raised some eyebrows. A source told MOT News, "She had a clear belly bump, and ate everything within arms reach. But no alcohol. Yeah, she's pregnant."

These pregnancy rumors will keep fans on their toes. Time will tell if this celebrity couple will make an official announcement.
