The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Cynthia Baileyand sweet sixteen daughter, Noelle Robinson, share a striking pose as they grace the cover of the latest issue of Heart & Soul Magazine. The mother and daughter beauties have never posed together professionally for a magazine cover, so they were over the moon when asked to appear on the African-American women’s publication that focuses on physical, mental and spiritual well-being.

The pair seemingly had a kind of dress rehearsal engagement on the final episode of the show. In actuality however, Ray reportedly popped the question again and with more flair on Boxing Day last month, while down on one knee and in front of a private jet before they were scheduled to take off.
The romantic engagement was completely planned by Ray J, who wanted to orchestrate a memorable and romantic event Princess would never forget. The crooner called his girl’s closest friends, as well as her parents to meet him at a heliport the day after Christmas. When the group arrived on the scene, Ray J asked them to hide on the jet, then surprise Princess once the romantic deed was over. According to the news outlet, Princess claims, she cried like a baby when Ray J presented her with a huge riveting yellow teardrop cut diamond framed by two rows of smaller ones.
