Real Housewives of Potomac star Juan Dixon proposed to his longtime girlfriend Robyn Dixon yesterday, and the proposal was captured on video.
The couple will be getting married (for a second time) next year. And that’s just more good news for the couple – because as MTO News has already reported, Juan and Robyn are expecting a baby together.
The couple got engaged on Friday, at a Bravo holiday wrap party for season 5 of the Potomac Housewives. Neither Robyn or Juan posted about the engagement, as they are saving news of it for their show, but many party guests hinted at the good news. And some even shared photos of Robyn’s diamond ring.
“@robyndixon10 Holiday Party. Always a good time!!” wrote pal Erana Taylor, alongside a photo in which a smiling Robyn can be seen with the diamond sparkler on that finger.
“Great holiday party Robyn Dixon! Full of fun and surprises!” added Dr. Vicki Irvin, alongside a series of snaps from the bash, to which Robyn replied with a series of dancing emojis.
Here’s video of the proposal:
Juan and Robyn met as teenagers and began dating when they were just 16-years-old. Robyn and her family supported Juan after he lost his mother from AIDS. Though Robyn never met his mother, Juan has said that he felt his mother sent Robyn to him following her death.
Robyn and Juan stayed together through college and she was by his side when he was drafted into the NBA in 2002. They married in 2005 and had two sons, Corey and Carter. Financial difficulties and infidelity led to the couple’s divorce in 2012.
They remained close friends and co-parents. So close that after Juan returned from playing basketball overseas, he moved into Robyn’s home. They shared the same bed while raising their sons together. Though they admitted they loved each other, fear kept them from taking their relationship to the next level.
