Love is in the air! It looks like things are pretty serious between The Real Housewives of Atlanta's Cynthia Bailey and her new boyfriend, Mike Hill, who began dating earlier this year. Not only do they have the cutest couple name (with a corresponding hashtag, of course), the two can't stop gushing about each other on social media.
Since the relationship is heating up quickly, it's only fitting that we learn a little more about the leading man in Cynthia's life. Keep reading to see everything you need to know about Mike Hill before Season 11 of RHOA premieres on November 4 at 8/7c.
1. Mike Hill is a broadcaster on FOX Sports
Mike has a successful career in sports journalism. With more than 20 years in the business, he began covering sports on local TV stations, which led him to win two Sports Emmy Awards in 1997. He moved to ESPN in 2004, where he hosted television and radio shows, including Sports Center, NFL Live, Baseball Tonight, and NBA Tonight, before landing his current job at FOX Sports 1. Now, you can catch him giving live NFL and NBA game breakdowns on the air or hosting MLB Whiparound and Inside the Big East.
2. He's a family man
One look at Mike's social media proves that family always comes first. He has two daughters, Ashlee and Kayla, and the way he talks about them will seriously melt your heart.
3. He's already tight with some of the RHOA cast and alums
Mike is good friends with Claudia Jordan, a former Atlanta 'Wife who appeared on Season 7. Not only do they co-host Unstable'D, a weekly podcast about news, sports, entertainment, and everything in between, they hang out outside of work, too. She helped celebrate Mike's birthday earlier this year, calling him "my brother."
But that's not all! Mike also celebrated his birthday with a separate, impromptu party, which NeNe Leakes and Gregg Leakes attended. And Cynthia even shared that Gregg made a "beautiful speech" for Mike! Clearly, he's already fitting in well with Cynthia's crew.
4. He might be the one for Cynthia
While the couple, nicknamed #CHill, only made their relationship Instagram official on August 21, Cynthia already has a pretty good feeling about Mike. "50 Cynt is gone and 51 Cynt is in full effect. She's in love ... she has a guy," she explains in the video above. "It's exclusive. I think he's the one."
5. He's a fitness fanatic
When he's not working or spending time with his family, there's a good chance Mike is at the gym. Not only does he often share clips from his intense workouts, his fitness transformation is pretty impressive. TBH, you might break a sweat just by watching these videos.
6. He can thank Steve Harvey for introducing him to Cynthia
What does Steve Harvey have to do with #CHill? Everything, actually! Cynthia appeared on his talk show, Steve TV, earlier this year where she got the chance to interview three bachelors and choose one lucky guy as her "match" to go out with. Mike was one of her potential suitors, and, well, the rest is history!
