New Kids on the Block singer Jonathan Knight looked over at his boyfriend and personal trainer Harley Rodriguez.
“You got it,” he seemed to tell himself, holding back the excitement.
He may or may not have been planning to pop the question since summertime, but the time for mind games was through.
“We were in Africa, our parents were there — our moms were there — and I just figured this was the time to pop the question and make it official,” Knight recalled on Sirius radio’s The Jenny McCarthy Show on Tuesday.
“We were on the Zambezi River — it’s right above Victoria Falls. We took a nighttime raft dinner, just the four of us out on the river, there was like a hippopotamus in the background. It was a super moon. It was just absolutely beautiful, it was so romantic.”
The two have been hangin’ tough together for eight years, and the timing of the engagement comes just months before Knight joins the old gang for a nostalgia tour across the U.S., along with Boyz II Men and Paula Abdul.
