Wait, Mike Hill Knew Cynthia's Ex Leon Robinson Before He Met Her?!?!
"It wasn’t like I was breaking the bro code," the RHOA future hubby shared about Noelle's dad.
Cynthia Bailey and future husband Mike Hill have done an expert job in combining their two families. Both are parents to daughters and have managed to merge their families into an adorable unit.
And in addition to kids, The Real Housewives of Atlanta couple also come with exes — so has it been just as seamless for them to make that situation work as well?
"We all want our kids to be happy. And we’re all in relationships. Everyone’s moved on, so there’s no reason why we can’t co-parent effectively because we don’t want to be back together," Cynthia told The Daily Dish with a laugh. She added, "We’re all pretty grown over here as well."
And, as it goes, the entertainment industry is pretty small and Mike, who works as a TV broadcaster, knew Cynthia's ex, actor Leon Robinson, who is the father of her daughter, Noelle, before he even met the RHOA cast member.
"I knew Leon before I knew Cynthia," he explained. "It wasn’t like I was breaking the bro code or anything like that. I knew him in passing and we knew each other from each other’s work obviously. He’s a big sports fan and I obviously know who he is from his acting career. So we met and we was actually gonna do a show together, try to get a show together, which we’re still gonna try and get together long before the whole thing."
He continued: "And even when I met Cynthia, I didn’t even think about — this is Leon’s baby mama. We just met and it just kinda happened that way. But, you know, he’s been so supportive and so loving and caring. He’ll reach out and when we were in New York, he wants to hang out with all of us."
Cynthia has made it clear that everyone getting along is of utmost importance.
"I’m a package deal," she said. "Noelle is Leon’s daughter so it was important to me, for Leon obviously to get to know Mike and like Mike said, they actually knew each other before. But now, they actually have a relationship. He’s completely supportive of our union. We all just make it work."
As for Cynthia and Mike's exes, he shed some light on that situation as well. "Then my exes, I know she’s talked to Camille," he said. "We’ve had dinner before at Nobu or whatever,and they’ve been very respectful... There’s been no drama whatsoever and I love it that way. [It] just [makes] the whole process move a little bit more smooth."
His future bride noted that their three daughters always come first.
"When your children are involved, then it’s really not about us anymore," Cynthia said. "I don’t want to marry Mike and there’s like friction with Leon."
