Congrats are in order, y’all! Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey got engaged to her sportscaster boyfriend, Mike Hill, on July 26 — with the Bravo TV cameras rolling to capture the romantic moment.
“This happened today as Cynthia opened up her wine store called Bailey’s Wine Cellar,” a source dished to Radar Online. “Mike’s daughter and Cynthia’s daughter were there, her mom and sister were also there.”
After making sure all of the model’s most important peeps were there, he started with the surprises. “He made a toast with a bottle with a big question mark on it, and Cynthia was confused,” the eyewitness told the outlet. “Mike got on one knee and proposed, he gave her a huge rock!”
“She said yes,” the insider raved about her reaction to the surprise proposal. “Cynthia was in shock, she started crying, she couldn’t believe it.” Talk about a moment to remember!
The couple started dating back in May 2018 and things got so good between them, Cyn decided to hang up her “player” hat for good. In fact, she dished to Life & Style exclusively about realizing she wanted to settle down with Mike back in October 2018.
“I think one of the main things that I love about Mike as a boyfriend, one of the reasons why I decided that it was time for me to shut down being Cynthia the player, settle down with one guy is because I think more than anything,” she revealed. “I think it’s not really one word that I can say, one thing that I can say, it’s just knowing, and just a feeling.”
“He just felt like peace and he just felt very comfortable to me,” she explained about her relationship with her man. “It just feels right and you know it didn’t happen overnight.”
Clearly, the couple is thrilled to take the next step — and Cynthia even had her RHOA babes there as well to help celebrate the big news.
