Yesterday, we told you that Phaedra Parks posted a picture of herself hugged up with a guy on New Year’s Eve, and based on the caption posted, she was trying to let the world know she’s off the market. She wrote, “2019 we are ready” with a heart emoji.

The guy was tagged as Chicago-based radio and TV personality Tone Kapone. Now, the 45-year-old former Real Housewives of Atlanta star didn’t say outright that Kapone was her new beau, but on Wednesday night, he confirmed that they are indeed dating. He kept it short and sweet.

“Yes, me and Phaedra are dating,” he said on Instagram Live. “Ok, cool? Is that it? That’s the big moment everybody was waiting for? Yeah, it was kind of self-explanatory on her page. I just didn’t want to repost it because it seemed like it would have been super weird like, ‘Yeah…look at me.’ Anybody who knows me knows I’m not that kind of guy.”

Looking at Kapone, one could say that Parks seems to have a type: men of a lighter complexion with muscles and tattoos. She was, of course, married to Apollo Nida from 2009 to 2017 before he went to prison for bank fraud and ID theft. They share sons Ayden and Dylan together.

But Kapone is far different from Nida. He’s a very busy man. As we shared with you already, Kapone hosts the 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. hours for Chicago’s 107.5 WGCI station, the 7 p.m. to 12 a.m. hours for Real 98.3 Indy, and appears on Dish Nation. He hosts a lot of events, including the New Year’s Eve shindig that Parks was in town for and snapped the above picture at.

If you’d like to see what Parks sees in Kapone (we’re willing to bet it’s the smile and the hustle), hit the flip and check him out:
