Adrienne Bailon is engaged to her longtime boyfriend Lenny Santiago.
The star broke the news on her daytime chat show The Real during a taping on
Thursday, revealing her engagement for the first time in front of the studio audience and co-hosts Loni Love, Jeannie Mai, Tamar Braxton and Tamera Mowry.
During a segment, during which the ladies chatted about the latest Hollywood gossip, Bailon, 31, suggested there was a very important story that wasn’t included, adding, “It’s not in here, you know why? Because no one knows.”
She then showed off her new diamond ring much to the surprise of her co-hosts, who gathered around her, jumping for joy.
Bailon recalled the moment Santiago popped the question during a recent visit to her native New York – the couple was enjoying a family dinner when her romantic boyfriend presented her with a box filled with carrots. When she accepted the odd gift, he said, “Well, since you said yes to those carrots…”, and presented her with the diamond engagement ring.
Bailon has been dating the Senior Vice President of A&R, Artist Management at Roc Nation for six years.
She previously romanced Kim Kardashian’s younger brother Rob.
