Fans of Real Housewives of Atlanta raised their eyebrows when they found out that Noelle Robinson is living with her mom’s fiance in California while Cynthia Bailey resides in Atlanta. It turns out that the couple is making their one big unconventional family work.
Cynthia is going from having one single daughter to having three once she says ‘I do’ to her beau Mike Hill. Noelle not only goes to college in the land of the superstars but she is also starting a modeling career of her own.
A better idea than living on campus with a roommate or being totally isolated in her own apartment was to move with Mike — who has already become like a father figure to her.
The arrangement is now also allowing her to get to know her new sisters according to the RHOA star.
‘One of the things that a lot of people don’t realize is Mike’s other daughter’s Kayla’s in L.A. as well. She just started UCLA. Now Kayla’s been there as well. She just really started, you know, being on the campus. But she’s home on the weekends as well, so it’s not just Mike and Noelle, it’s really the three of them and we recently just discovered that [Mike’s other daughter] Ashlee wants to move to L.A. as well so it looks like all the girls are gonna be in L.A. so I can get out there,’ Bailey told the Daily Dish in a couple’s interview.
Although Noelle and Mike share a special bond, he admits that he doesn’t get to see her a lot.
‘I don’t see her that much. You know, Noelle’s busy, doing her thing and I got a lot — about six or seven jobs, so really it’s almost like she’ll go to her room and I’ll see her in the common areas every now and then,’ Mike said before adding that he sees her maybe ten minutes a day.
It’s great to see that this new dynamic is making the soon-to-be family happy.
