Star 94 morning host Cindy Simmons has had a rough year after recovering from breast cancer. But she had a big announcement this morning: her boyfriend Eric gave her an engagement ring this past weekend, two years after their first date.
“I’m just glad to have some good news,” she said on the air today. “I’m really happy. I can’t stop smiling!”
“He’s such a good man,” she added. “I didn’t sleep at all. I’m so tired and I don’t care. I just want to run laps around the building.”
He had Maggiano’s food set up on a table at a park in Brookhaven, gave Cindy’s five-year-old daughter Lily a gold cross necklace, then presented Cindy the big gift.
They are tentatively planning a wedding between Thanksgiving and Christmas later this year.
Simmons, 39, divorced a few years back so this would be her second marriage. Eric has never married.
