She said yes! After 14 months together, “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Cynthia Bailey is officially engaged to boyfriend sportscaster Mike Hill.
According to People magazine, Hill, 48, proposed to the 52-year-old reality television actress at Friday’s grand opening of her new business, The Bailey Wine Cellar.
Bailey’s daughter, sister and mother and Hill’s two daughters were in attendance as the Fox Sports 1 journalist slid a 5-carat princess cut solitaire ring onto his new fiancé’s finger.
Celebrity event planner Courtney Ajinça helped pull off the surprise. A source told People the two made it seem like Hill was getting ready to toast to Bailey in honor of the grand opening. In the middle of a speech, Hill’s 17-year-old daughter Kayla handed him a bottle adorned with a question mark.
He then asked Bailey’s daughter, 19-year-old Noelle Robinson, to help open the bottle. As she passed him the ring box, Hill dropped to one knee, and the girls held up a puzzle piece sign that read “Can we be a family?” behind him.
Bailey’s “yes” quickly followed, and the crowd erupted in applause, according to the magazine.
This will be the second marriage for both lovebirds. The RHOA star was previously married to Peter Thomas.
