Cynthia Bailey from the Atlanta Housewives and her longtime boyfriend Mike Hill were engaged yesterday, MTO News can confirm.

Mike popped the question during the grand opening of Cynthia's new wine shop in Atlanta.

It all popped off in front of the Bravo cameras, and Cynthia Bailey appeared to be very surprised when her boyfriend Mike Hill got down on one knee to ask for her hand in marriage.

Hill reportedly pretended he was giving a toast at the grand opening before being interrupted by the teens who presented Bailey a sign that read, "Can we be a family?"

Hill then popped the questions and Bailey broke down into tears as she said yes. The crowd started cheering, "Congratulations Chill!" which is the nickname Bailey created.

The 52-year-old Real Housewives of Atlanta star accepted the 48-year-old sportscaster's proposal — and his massive diamond ring.

Here are pics from the proposal:

Cynthia and Mike's engagement is expected to be a featured storyline on the upcoming season of the Bravo reality series Real Housewives Of Atlanta.

The two began dating two years ago - they were introduced by Steve Harvey on his talk show.

"We talk about getting married all the time. I’m hoping a proposal will happen soon, if not before the end of this year, then hopefully next. I’ve certainly been dropping enough hints! But God has a plan, so I’m just letting it go," she added.

“You know, we’ve both been married before, so marriage is something we both understand,” Bailey explained. “We’re not jumping into this blind. We both have kids and we both love each other very much. We know marriage is the next step.”

The entrepreneur has been very open about her desire to tie the knot again. She told People magazine previously, “I want to marry Mike. I love Mike. He’s my soulmate."

Congratulations to Cynthia and Mike.
