‘Rooting for You’: Cynthia Bailey Reflects on the Day She Met Fiancé Mike Hill, Fans Eat it Up

It looks like Cynthia Bailey and her fiancé Mike Hill‘s love story may be one for the books.

The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” couple appear to be more in love than ever, and are months away from tying the knot. Over the weekend, Bailey reflected on the first time she and Hill met each other a few years ago on Steve Harvey‘s former talk show and gushed over the happy memory.

“2 years ago today i met @itsmikehill for the first time when we taped the @iamsteveharveytv show for his dating pool,” the model wrote via Instagram on Saturday, attached with a couple pic of her and the ESPN sportscaster.

“Although we were both optimistic, neither one of us expected to find love that day,” she continued. “God had other plans, so here we are ❤️ #CHill  #godsplan #2020 #everyonedeserveslove”

Fans instantly jetted over the couple’s love story and showered Bailey with well-wishes.

“What a beautiful loving couple who I wish all the blessings 💕. I like u two together beautiful couple 2020 is ur year…. Team Cynthia…”

“@cynthiabailey10 Cheers to many more years of happiness together🥂. I’m so excited about your wedding. I can’t wait!”

“I been rooting for you guys since the Steve Harvey show. You guys are a beautiful couple. My favorite along with Kandi & Todd.”

“Love you guys together! The proposal with the girls was so special, congrats 🤗💞 I am so happy for you! #HeQuichedYourThirst 😍”

Bailey and Hill met in April 2018 during Harvey’s matchmaking game on his former talk show.

The model was initially going to pick another potential suitor as her date rather than Hill, but Harvey talked her out of her decision.

“Cynthia Bailey was going to pick somebody else,” Harvey said to “Entertainment Tonight” in September 2018. “I told her, ‘You’re not picking that guy, you gon’ pick this guy [referring to Hill]. I talked her into him, they started dating. … She’s found somebody that she’s crazy about.”

When the couple re-appeared on the “Steve” show last November for an update on their relationship, the comedian suggested that Hill was Bailey’s “soulmate.”

Hill proposed to Bailey last July. The two are slated to walk down the aisle this October.
