We are fans of “The Real” around here. And as the name suggests, the show really shines a light into the lives of their co-hosts. We know quite a bit about the ladies. And since they come across as so authentic, we can’t help but like and feel connected to all of them.
And as we’ve been watching, we’ve heard all of the women talk about their relationships. Of course, Tamar, Tamera and Jeannie Mai are married but Adrienne has been open about her longterm relationship with boyfriend Lenny Santiago, senior vice president of A&R, artist management at Roc Nation and manager to Fabolous.
And it looks like after today, the two are taking their love to the next step.
Recently, on “The Real” (which will air on Monday) Bailon, 31, revealed that the two are making it official. She announced it so dramatically. She was flipping through a tabloid looking for a bit of news. But of course she couldn’t find it.
She said, “It’s not in here, you know why? Because no one knows.”
Then she pulls her hand up from under the table and says, “I’m engaged.”
According to E Online Bailon explained that during a recent trip back to New York City, Lenny, her boyfriend for the past six years, convinced her to change out of her pajamas and go out to dinner with the family. When they got to the restaurant Santiago gave a speech to her family about how much he loves their daughter, saying he had a gift for everyone.
So he gives her a box, Adrienne rips off all of the paper to find carrots. Not carats, carrots.
Bailon took it in stride though, saying “Was this like the harvest of our love?”
And since she was so cool under pressure, Santiago said, “Well, since you said yes to those carrots…” and then he got down on one knee and hit her with the bling.
Congratulations to Adrienne and Lenny!
