Budden, 36, surprised Santana, 26, during the live taping of his hit podcast, The Joe Budden Podcast with Rory & Mal in New York City.
“This is the best relationship I’ve ever had,” Joe Budden said in front of the sold-out crowd.

He continued, “I’m here to ask you the same thing. Is this the best relationship you’ve ever had?” Santana responded from the audience. After a brief pause, Budden said, “Prove it to me,” before getting down on one knee.
Congratulations to Cyn Santana and Joe Budden on their engagement!! #SHESAIDYES!

After getting onstage, the 26-year-old told her now-fiancé, “I want to spend this life and the next with you.”
The couple appears on the current season of Love & Hip Hop New York. They both previously on Season 3 and 4 of the series with former lovers.
Santana was weary of Budden at first, telling Latina magazine, “I couldn’t stand Joe because he comes off as a f***ing d**k.”
In July 2016, they officially began dating. “I don’t know. It just happened. It was very organic. I’ve known Joe for like six years and never looked his way.”
More than a year later, they welcomed their son, Lexington, on Dec. 15, 2016.
