It’s an emotional morning in America — as Republican Donald Trump gets sworn in as the 45th President of the United States of America, the country is saying goodbye to Barack Obama, the country’s first Black president.

Obama, an absolute standup character, served two terms with pure class, dignity and love. As Obama and his stunning family get ready to move on to the next chapter of their lives, celebrities are praising the now-former president and his team for a job well done.

Zoe Saldana took to Instagram Friday morning to simply say thank you for all Obama has done for this country. “We hope we make you proud. You taught us that love is the only way to move forward,” she wrote. “I learned so much from you and our First Lady Michelle Obama. I am honored I was able to witness your presidency , and I have been forever changed, educated, guided and inspired by you. Our children will know about you, we promise.”

Lala Anthony posted on Instagram: “Grateful to GOD myself and my son were alive to witness this.JOB. WELL. DONE.FOREVER MY POTUS AND FLOTUS!!!”

Zendaya shared an emotional message on Instagram, writing: “My president is black…feels good to say. Thank you for all you’ve done and all you represent. #ThankyouObama.”

Khloe Kardashian wrote on the social media website: I’m asking you to believe. Not in my ability to bring about change — but in yours.” Terribly sad to see you go but honored I was able to watch firsthand. I hope our history books will do you justice.

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



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.
