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.

        Not trying to throw shade, but his black daughter married a white man. How do you feel about that?

    The age difference is enormous. They’re grown, so to each its own.

      Lmbo @ enormous. It is a rather large age gap. That’s more of an age gap than I have with my parents and my parents had me when they were in their 30s.

        Exactly. It is more of an age gap of my parents too. My parents’ age gap is about 6 years. The age gap of Bob Johnson and Lauren Wooden is about 33 years. That’s huge. It’s their business. Peace and Blessings to you Sister.
