The Real Host Adrienne Bailon Is Engaged

Rob Kardashian's ex makes it official with her music exec beau.

Published February 6, 2015

Adrienne Bailon is engaged! The Real co-host is set to marry her longtime love Lenny Santiago, a music executive and celebrity photographer, she confirmed on the show Thursday.

Bailon shared the news with her co-hosts Tamar Braxton, Jeannie Mai, Loni Love and Tamera Mowry while the group was flipping through magazines looking for the latest in Hollywood news. "It's not in here, you know why? Because no one knows," Bailon began before showing off her bling. 


Santiago is Senior Vice President of A&R, Artist Management at Roc Nation and manager to Fabolous. He's been in the business for decades and is also a renowned celebrity photographer under the moniker KodakLens.

The couple have kept their relationship very private since they began dating nearly six years ago, a habit Bailon told us she attributed to her public breakup with Rob Kardashian. "I would be a liar if I said that I wasn’t keeping my current relationship more private because of what I experienced with Rob," she told in 2013. She added, "When I was younger, I wouldn’t have been able to keep a secret, but now that I'm older, it’s not important to me to get other people’s opinions on it. I don’t want to put my partner out there for people to talk about."

Bailon isn't the only celeb with happy news to share this week. Newlyweds Ashlee Simpson and Evan Ross also announced that they are expecting a baby girl. The exciting news comes just five months after Simpson and Ross tied the knot at his mother Diana Ross’s estate in Greenwich, Connecticut.
