Cynthia Bailey and Mike Hill iz married, y’all! “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star and her television host husband were wed on Oct. 10 in a lavish ceremony in the Atlanta suburb of Acworth, Georgia.
The 53-year-old model and her 50-year-old sportscaster fiancé said their “I do’s” in front of family and friends at the posh Governors Towne Club during a day filled with love and laughter. Bailey looked snatched and stunning in her Nneka C. Alexander of Brides by Nona gown, Badgley Mischka shoes, and headpiece. Mike cleaned up pretty nicely himself, in a shimmering silver and black tuxedo jacket.
“Mike and I are elated that today has finally come! 10/10/20 is and always will be our perfect date. We are not perfect, but, are perfect for each other,” the happy couple told People magazine. “We are living in a very different time, and now more than ever we realize that life is too short, and to never take anything for granted. We are so grateful to have found each other. Love with the help of God conquers all.”
The couple nodded at protecting their 250 guests in the age of COVID-19 by hiring a sanitizing team to deep-clean the venue, as well as requiring all guests to sign a COVID-19 waiver and undergo temperature checks.
(It’s not clear how signing a waiver would prevent transmission of aerosolized SARS-Cov-2 particles from an infected person, and temperature screenings alone are not an effective method for detecting an infected person.)
Bailey’s “RHOA” girls Kandi Burruss, Kenya Moore, and Eva Marcille were part of the bridal party but not the only Atlanta housewives in attendance. Current and former “RHOA” cast members Porsha Williams, Claudia Jordan, and Sheree Whitfield showed up to support, as did as plenty of other recognizable reality stars such as Princess Love, Shamea Morton, Gizelle Bryant, Syleena Johnson, Quad Webb, and more.
Fans were thrilled to see the Black love in action, but many had questions about Cynthia’s appearance in her dress, which others remarked could have been due to her fibroid diagnosis.
“I know Peter done rode past the venue six times, punching the steering wheel 😭.”
“Definitely not pregnant she has fibroids 😩.”
“He got them Stallion knees”
“These comments are giving me anxiety for Cynthia. She’s openly talked about having fibroids. Sometimes they can be so large that it gives the appearance of a pregnancy and yall are just on here saying the same thing over and over again. Ugh. 🤦🏽♀️”
“i love black successful people gatherings 😍.”
The newlyweds went public with their relationship in August 2018 and were engaged in July 2019. The marriage is the second for both Hill and Bailey, following her 2017 divorce from Peter Thomas.
