Adrienne Bailon is engaged!
“The Real” co-host announced she and her longtime boyfriend, Lenny Santiago, are officially engaged.
E! News gave the scoop on how the proposal went down.
Bailon explained that while on a visit back home in New York recently, her beau of almost six years convinced her to get out of her pajamas one night and go to a nice dinner with the family. When they got to the empty restaurant in upstate New York, Santiago gave a speech to her parents about how much he loves their daughter and said he had a gift for everyone.
The surprise present—wait, it’s not what you think—was supposed to show the family that he knows Adrienne is worth it and will be able to give her everything she deserves in due time. Bailon continues to share that she ripped through the tissue in the box to find…carrots. Yep, carrots.
“Was this like the harvest of our love?” Bailon joked, and explained that she expressed her appreciation and love for the carrots, regardless. Then, Santiago says, “Well, since you said yes to those carrots…” and gets on his knee to propose with that gorgeous sparkler.
Lenny Santiago is Senior Vice President of A&R, Artist Management at Roc Nation and manager to hip-hop artist, Fabolous. He’s been in the business for decades, and is also a renowned celebrity photographer under the moniker KodakLens.
