BET founder Bob Johnson, 69, recently announced his engagement to his girlfriend of 5 years, 36-year-old Lauren Wooden. Johnson proposed to the doctorate student in Paris with a 7.5 carats, but it wasn’t his first time proposing.
When Johnson spotted Wooden 5 years ago in a hotel lobby, he immediately popped the question. Of course she said no, but did take him up on a date. And as the saying goes, the rest is history.
Johnson and Wooden have both been married before, and they think they’ve finally found the ‘one’.
“I’ve found the absolute, unequivocally right person for me,” Johnson says. “Happiness only begins to describe how I feel.”
“I’m over-the-moon, madly, deeply, proudly in love with Bob,” Johnson stated.
