‘I Won’: Mike Hill Reminisces Over the Day He Met Cynthia Bailey as They Count Down to Their Wedding

It’s the one-day countdown to the exchanges of “I do” between Fox Sports1 sportscaster Mike Hill and reality star Cynthia Bailey of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta”

Hill took to the ‘Gram earlier in the week with a flashback video of him and Bailey on “The Steve Harvey Show” in 2018 when Harvey connected the two through his show segment “Steve’s Dating Pool.” At the time, Bailey asked him his most attractive quality. 

Hill responded by saying his personality and how he would like to put a smile on Bailey’s face, and, sure enough, he did.  

“Who knew? God did!!” Hill captioned the throwback video. “At the end of the day, that’s the only One who matters. I won this, btw!! I WON!! 10-10-2020,” he concluded.

“Amazing! ❤️🙏🏾! Wishing you both a lifetime of happiness!”

“Love, love Mike Hill! I pray you and Cynthia grow old together in Jesus’ name 🙏.”

“I love that phrase; stay positive, have faith, and live your life to the fullest. You never know where God is going to show up!👏 This just uplifted my spirit. Thanks 🤗.”

“You guys really love each other ❤️❤️❤️continue to cover them, Jesus.”

“This is so inspiring!!! 😢 Congrats, Mike!!!! 🙏🏾💪🏾🙌🏾🖤.” 

Bailey originally posted the throwback video, writing, “5 more days💍 some days I still can’t believe that in January 2018 (the show was aired April 2018), I met my now fiancé @itsmikehill through my friend @iamsteveharveytv on his dating pool,” she wrote.

“Honestly, I was initially reluctant to do the dating pool but was at a point in my life where for once, I just decided to not overthink everything, have fun, and go for it,” she continued. 

Bailey concluded by encouraging people having thoughts about giving up on love to “Stay positive, have faith, and live your life to the fullest. You never know where God is going to show up🙏🏽❤️💍.” 

The pair became engaged in July 2019. Fans will finally see Bailey marry her happily ever after, following her divorce from Peter Thomas in 2017. 

The couple will marry October 10, 2020 at an estate outside of Atlanta.

Who knew? God did!! At the end of the day, that’s the only One who matters. I won this, btw!! I WON!! 10-10-2020 Repost from @cynthiabailey • 5 more days💍 some days i still can’t believe that in January 2018 (the show was aired April 2018), i met my now fiancé @itsmikehill through my friend @iamsteveharveytv on his dating pool. honestly, I was initially reluctant to do the dating pool but was at a point in my life where for once, I just decided to not over think everything, have fun, and go for it. i had no real expectations, but was excited to step outside my box & have a good time. let go & let God. funny enough Mike was also not initially sure about doing the dating pool either since he was doing “quite well” in the dating world before we met lol. although, he was reluctant, he was curious to meet me. Fun fact: Mike actually wasn’t even one of the guys that the show was vetting to be in the dating pool, and ended up finding out about it through a friend of his that happened to be a producer on the show & mentioned it to him. Similar to my attitude, he decided to also not overthink it, have fun, and see what happened. Another fun fact: we both had said publicly numerous times that we would never get married again lol. so much for that. never say never! anyway, i never imagined in my wildest dreams that I would meet & fall in love with my best friend. Remember: Stay positive, have faith, and live your life to the fullest. You never know where God is going to show up🙏🏽❤️💍 #CHill #2020 #love
