Fifteen months after being involved in a horrific car crash, Tracy Morgan made a surprise, yet emotional appearance at the 67th Annual Academy Awards.

Dapper in a burgundy tuxedo, the comedian presented the final award for Outstanding Drama Series and was welcomed with a standing ovation and loud cheer from the audience. “I miss you guys so much,” he said.

Morgan continued, “Last year Jimmy Kimmel stood on the stage and said ‘we will see you back here next year Tracy Morgan.’ Well, Jimmy, thanks to my amazing doctors, the support of my family, my beautiful new wife, I’m here. Standing on my own two feet. And God bless all of you, for your love, your prayers your positive thoughts over the past 15 months.”

The comedian went on to explain that it has “been a long road back. I’ve suffered a traumatic brain injury that put me in a coma for eight days … I finally regained consciousness” And in classic Tracy fashion, the 46-year-old couldn’t continue without adding in a perfectly timed quip. “I was just ecstatic to learn I wasn’t the one who messed up.”

“Only recently I started to feel like myself again, which means a whole lot of young women are going to get pregnant at the after party,” he said just before announcing that the winner for Outstanding Drama Series was Game of Thrones. 

Morgan was a passenger in a limo van on June 7 2014 when Walmart driver, Kevin Roper slammed into it causing it to overturn. The crash injured several and killed comedian, James McNair.

Finally! Taraji P. Henson Confirms Relationship With NFL Baller Kelvin Hayden

Published

on

Taraji is finally letting the world know what it already knew – she’s in a relationship with NFL cornerback Kelvin Hayden. Henson dished the (cold) tea while on Essence’s Yes, Girl! podcast saying that the reason she kept it a secret was because she’s a private person.

“I’m not the type to blast my personal business. But, you know, I think that’s important for people to know. I’m happy. I’m very very happy. I just am,” the “Empire” actress shared.

Rumors first circulated in December 2015 about Henson and 34-year-old Hayden, who played for the Chicago Bears and the Indianapolis Colts, after photos surfaced of the pair holding hands in Miami. Though Hayden has appeared on her Instagram feed, the Golden Globe winner never confirmed the intimate details until now.

“You know, we’ve been together for two years. No one would really know that because I don’t really blast my info like that. But I’m very happy,” she said.

Taraji girl we could tell. The Hidden Figures actress even broke out singing, “Finally! It has happened to me,”—quoting the CeCe Peniston‘s song “Finally.”

Henson also revealed the couple will be celebrating the holidays together with the new puppy Hayden gifted her with as an early Christmas present.

“Big #KBall with Lil squirt #KBall watching daddy brush his teeth! 😩😂😂😂,” she wrote, teasing a photo of her boo and new pup.

And speaking of Christmas, in case you missed it Taraji hosted her “White Hot Holidays” special on Fox Wednesday night. Peep the clips of Henson having some fun with her celebrity guests including Method Man, DJ Khaled, Neicy Nash, Salt-N-Pepa and The Ying Yang Twins.
