Oscar nominated actor Terrence Howard recently proposed to his girlfriend Zulay Henao. The Hustle & Flow star was on location in Prague, filming Red Tails, and was met by his Colombian lady love in Europe. Howard, a divorced father of three, reportedly asked for Henao's hand in marriage during the visit, and she accepted.

A reporter for the celebrity photograpry agency Wenn blogged that Howard drunkenly declared his engagement while at a bar in Prague with friends and castmates from the film as well as his paramour, Henao. Apparently, Howard slurred, "I just got engaged!" to the blogger before
stumbling off to continue his celebration with Henao.

Although the couple has never officially confirmed their relationship, they have been photographed together since 2007. Howard said Henao helped him get through the heartbreaking death of his mother last September. The couple recently starred together in the film Fighting.

Howard, 40, has been married twice before to the same woman (and mother of his children), Lori McCommas. This will be the first marriage for Henao, who can be seen next in S. Darko, the sequel to the cult hit Donnie Darko.

When we contacted Henao's agent she replied, "She is not engaged to Terrence. She doesn’t even date him." Riiiiiiiiiiiight. Photographic evidence doesn't lie. Howard and Henao have been snapped together at events from Hollywood to D.C. for years now, not to mention the romantic vacation they shared in which they were caught making out! Sounds like someone needs to update their PR reps.
