Neither of the Empire stars have confirmed their engagement via social media, but Gealey posted a birthday Instagram about her "incredibly unforgettable day," which features an photo of the actress in front of a cake with what looks like a ring on her left hand.

Rumors have been swirling about the costars dating since early spring, despite the irony of their relationship on the show -- Gealey plays Anika Calhoun, Lucious Lyon's fiancee, making her the step-mom-to-be of Byers' character Andre Lyon.

Empire returns for a second season on Sept. 23.
