Adrienne Bailon and Lenny Santiago started seeing each other in October 2009, but began officially dating in March 2010.
The 31-year-old celeb revealed during The Real (airing Monday) 9 February 2015 that she's engaged to longtime love Lenny Santiago! But of course she didn't just blurt it out. She had a plan when it came to announcing the big news to her fellow co-hosts and the audience, and E! News has the exclusive sneak peek!
She explained while on a visit back home in New York recently, her beau of almost five years convinced her to get out of her pj's 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.
Adrienne Bailon revealed some sad news on the morning talk show earlier today. (September 16, 2015)
"Through the summer, I went on my little Eat Pray Love journey and it was a time for me to come to terms with my own truth and my honesty and I am not engaged anymore, and we're in a good place," she confessed.
Back in February, we learned that her longtime love Lenny Santiago popped the question, however, their time together ended before they reached the aisle.
