Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey sparked rumors that she and fiancé Mike Hill had already tied the knot after they were photographed in wedding attire. However, her agent shot down the speculation and explained that the couple dressed up to shoot a magazine spread for Sophisticated Weddings in New York City.
"Not to worry, this was merely a photoshoot in preparation for their big day! Cynthia looked lovely today! Be sure to check out the magazine for Mike and Cynthia’s full photoshoot, coming soon," her agent Nick Roses told People.
Mike, 49, popped the question to Cynthia, 52, in July 2019 after 14 months of dating. Their engagement was caught on camera and recently aired on RHOA. It will be the second marriage for both of them. Cynthia wed ex Peter Thomas in 2010 and they divorced in 2017. Mike was previously married to Camille Hill and they share two teenage daughters.
Cynthia revealed in November 2019 that they had already selected a date to walk down the aisle.
"I actually have to thank Kandi Burruss for helping us with the date. We had been wanting to do it in October, but I didn’t actually know when. We were actually in Greece, we were on the bus just bored and talking about wedding stuff. And she said, ’10/10/20 — like 20/20 vision.’ It falls on a Saturday. It’s perfect. Perfect vision, perfect date. And our little mantra is, ‘We’re not perfect, but we’re perfect for each other.’ So it works," Cynthia told People TV's Reality Check.
Cynthia's costar Kenya Moore almost ruined her proposal. On the December 22 episode of the Bravo show, Kenya caught heat from Kandi after repeatedly hinting to Cynthia that Mike was going to propose at the opening of The Bailey Wine Cellar. "Mike said to me, ‘Don’t leave yet. Don’t leave early.’ Basically giving me a heads up that he’s about to do something big, right? I give Kenya a little text: ‘I think he’s going to pop the question.’ Then all of a sudden she just blurts it out. Like, why? Why would you do that? B***h," Kandi said during her confessional.
