When Noelle Robinson jetted off to Los Angeles to pursue a career in show business and move out of her home in Atlanta, finding a place to stay wasn't very hard. She just ended up moving in with her future stepdad, Mike Hill.
"I don’t see her that much. You know, Noelle’s busy, doing her thing and I got a lot — about six or seven jobs, so really it's almost like she’ll go to her room and and I’ll see her in the common areas every now and then," he said. " I think I’ve seen Noelle maybe — maybe like 10 minutes per day. If that," he added, with a laugh.
And the quarters are quite jam-packed at Casa Hill, as it turns out. "One of the things that a lot of people don’t realize is Mike’s other daughter’s Kayla’s in L.A. as well. She just started UCLA," Cynthia said. "Now Kayla’s been there as well. She just really started, you know, being on the campus. But she’s home on the weekends as well, so it’s not just Mike and Noelle, it’s really the three of them and we recently just discovered that [Mike's other daughter] Ashlee wants to move to L.A. as well so it looks like all the girls are gonna be in L.A. so I can get out there," Cynthia noted, with a laugh.
Mike is quick to point out that he considers Noelle one of his kids and "my family," even before he ties the knot with Cynthia later this year, noting, "If my daughters wanted to come out here and move to L.A. and, you know, it’s their home. So I feel like my home is her home and she’s got every right."
He added, "I went from having a four-bedroom house by myself to now looking like I need to upgrade my house... now Cynthia’s also spending a lot of time out there. So I like it. I love having a lot of people in the house and just feeling that love and that joy. But Noelle’s been a joy being out there and whatnot and she’s no bother at all and she’s just doing her thing. Noelle’s my daughter. I don’t look at her as my stepdaughter."
