BET Founder Bob Johnson popped the question to his girlfriend Lauren Wooden in a major way. Find out how he got down on one knee inside…
When a man goes out of his way to pull off an extravagant proposal, it’s hard for a woman to say no.
BET founder Bob Johnson is getting married! He pulled out the red carpet for his girlfriend of five years Lauren Wooten when he asked for her hand in marriage.
According to the Washington Post, the 69-year-old popped the question to his 36-year-old girlfriend -- who is currently pursuing an international business management doctorate in Paris -- last month. And it was big.
Bob gifted Lauren a really big ring, 7.5 carats to be exact. Setting the atmosphere just right, rose petals were scattered on the floor, a bottle of Dom Perignon was available and a private after-hours tour and dinner at Musee Rodin. Nice!
By the way, he first popped the question on their first date. Of course she declined, but five years later it’s the real deal. Wedding deets haven’t been released just yet, but they hope to trek down the aisle this summer. This will be the 2nd marriage for them both.
Congrats to the couple!
