Cynthia Bailey has got a new man, and according to our sources he’s a keeper. HipHollywood got all the tea about Bailey’s new Fox Sports anchor boo, Mike Hill, and he’s definitely a stand-up guy.
Cynthia hasn’t been very lucky in love the past few years. Her marriage to husband Peter Thomas ended after he was caught cheating and former flame Will Jones, was reportedly with another woman when he started seeing Bailey last year. Now it seems she’s bounced back and is head over hills (pun intended).
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star told us back in July she met someone special. “There is someone I am quite focused on at the moment, but you know I’m going to take my time,” she explained.
Over the weekend Bailey went public with her romance, posting a photo and message wishing her new bae a happy 48th birthday. The photo included a candlelit dinner, balloons and candles that spelled out “Happy Birthday Mike.”
“Happy Birthday @itsmikehill. I hope you enjoy your special day baby,” she said in her caption.
Hill is also really into Bailey and he let her know it with a sweet message on his Instagram. “If you appreciate HER be man enough to admit it. @cynthiabailey10 Thanks for making this trip and my life special,” he wrote.
