Cynthia Bailey is going strong with her boyfriend Mike Hill. “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star teased fans of the Bravo show that she was “in love” with her new man. In the new trailer for the upcoming season, the model admitted she could be “getting married soon.” But what is he all about? Below are five things to know about Hill.
He’s Younger Than His Model Girlfriend
In August, Hill celebrated his 48th birthday, making him three years younger than 51-year-old Bailey.
“What an incredible night! Thanks for helping me celebrate @itsmikehill 48th birthday,” Bailey said in response to her pals NeNe Leakes and Gregg Leakes helping celebrate. “Thanks for the beautiful speech, Gregg. Sorry I had to put y’all out in the end😂.”
He’s Got a Job as a Sportscaster
Hill currently works as a broadcaster with Fox Sports 1, where he’s been since the network’s launch in 2013. He’s worked in the business for 20 years and hosts shows like “MLB Whiparound” on FS1. Before joining that channel, he was on ESPN for nine years.
Big Birthday Celebrations Are The Norm
When Hill turned 48, Bailey celebrated by having an intimate celebration that included candles spelling out, “Happy Birthday <3 Mike.”
The birthday boy admitted such a small-scale celebration isn’t usually his style, as he typically opts for a blowout bash.
“Have to admit, this birthday caught me by surprise!!” he said on Instagram. “I’m so grateful and blessed. Thank you for being so awesome!!! I usually do a big party but sometimes you just have to Chill. #LeoSeason #JustBeHappy @cynthiabailey10.”
Steve Harvey Is Responsible for Hill Getting with Bailey
in the spring, Bailey appeared on “Steve” to get set up with eligible bachelors to begin a romance. The RHOA star had three men to choose from but if it were not for Steve Harvey, Bailey and Hill wouldn’t be an item.
“Cynthia Bailey was going to pick somebody else,” Harvey told “Entertainment Tonight.” “I told her, ‘You’re not picking that guy, you gon’ pick this guy.
“I talked her into him, they started dating,” he added. “So now it’s pretty serious and they’re exclusive. She’s found somebody that’s she’s crazy about.”
He’s a Father of Two Daughters
Much like Bailey is the mother of daughter Noelle Robinson, Hill is also the proud parent of daughters. In July, he visited his favorite Los Angeles restaurant with his youngest daughter, Nickol, while his oldest, Ashlee, was away.
