Congrats are in order for Cynthia Bailey, who just days ago confirmed her engagement to Mike Hill. And now that these two are planning to make it official, it also means they will be blending their two families together. Cynthia is mom to a 19-year-old, Noelle Robinson, her daughter from her previous relationship with Leon Robinson. Meanwhile, Mike is dad to two daughters, Kayla, 17, and Ashlee, 19.
Weeks before Cynthia and Mike got engaged, The Daily Dish spoke to Noelle, who was on hand for the big proposal and even played a small part in it, about her relationship with her now future stepdad. "I love Mike. We have such a great relationship and it happened completely organically," she shared. "We have gotten super close. I really love how happy my mom is since she's been with him. I'm just really blessed that he came into our lives."
Of course, Noelle is close to her dad Leon, and she also confirmed that she remains tight with Cynthia's first husband, Peter Thomas, in the years since they divorced. "I do keep in touch with him as well," she said about her former stepdad. "So, it's like I literally have a dad and two bonus dads now."
She continued, "It's honestly really great. I don't think I would be the person that I am without it. And it's just so great because a lot of people don't really even have one dad that's there and I feel like I have three now," she said, also shouting out Cynthia as well for being so awesome: "And [I have] a great mom and a great family, so I'm extremely blessed."
However, Noelle's notes that her pop, Leon, "makes sure that his place is known and then he goes accordingly."
