For Baby Boy fans, the reunion we've been waiting for is finally happening. Tyrese announced on the Wendy Williams Show that he'll be playing Taraji P. Henson's love interest this season on Empire. Of course, Ty and Taraji played one of the most memorable couples in Black rom-com history as Jody and Yvette in Baby Boy, and fans of the film have been holding out for decades for a sequel.

"Me and Taraji, we gotta do what we do. I'm coming to get my girl back," Tyrese told the audience. "All them dudes on [Empire] kissing on my girl. I'm kind of done with seeing all of that," he joked.

These two have no shortage of chemistry, so we're sure sparks will fly when Tyrese tries to woo Cookie. Watch Tyrese share the exciting news with Wendy below!
