Cynthia Bailey Teases Her New Relationship

When we first found out that Cynthia Bailey had a new man in her life, an individual she has already dubbed "the one," we were not only dying to know who the lucky fella is but also how these two first met. Cynthia made things Instagram official with her new boyfriend, Mike Hill, in August, and we just got the answer to our second most important burning question, too.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta on Bravo Sundays at 8/7c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

Cynthia shared a throwback photo of the day she met Mike for the first time on Thursday. The pics showed that Mike appeared as one of three potential matches for Cynthia on Steve Harvey's talk show in April. "Never question how or when God shows up," Cynthia captioned the photos on Instagram, adding "#baeday," "#godsplan," "#blessed," and "#faith."

Cynthia was clearly smitten with Mike during the episode, so it's no surprise that she ultimately chose to go out with Mike. He gave her a quick hug and a kiss, and you could totally feel the electricity. "The reason you stood out to me a little bit more is because I have the type of personality where I live in the moment. I really feel like you've just got one life to live, and you should just be happy," Cynthia said on Steve. "I'm always constantly on a quest for peace and happiness, and peace is very much a part of being happy, and I loved your answer for that. That was something that I really resonated with."

Who knew Steve was such a marvelous matchmaker?

Since that fateful day, Mike has officially become Cynthia's "bae," and they even have their very own couples hashtag, "#CHill."
