An Atlanta entrepreneurial couple is melting the internet with a public proposal.
Hayes was on a panel at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center with Cole who’s expecting his second child, and he got down on one knee.
An emotional Cole was seen crying while Hayes thanked her for having his back and placed the ring on her finger.
The couple’s engagement at Essence is especially serendipitous because the couple covered a recent issue of the magazine.
Inside their “Hot In The Kitchen” cover story, the business owners discussed everything from food, community, their love for each other, second chances, and how they turned their multimillion-dollar businesses into a family affair.
“I think that our relationship is symbolic of what the world should look and feel like…It should look and feel like a place where there is no judgment,” Cole told Essence about their love story. “Just because you might not believe in the things that I believe in, doesn’t mean that we can’t come together in friendship, love and spirituality…”
Congrats to the happy couple!
