New Kids On The Block’s Jonathan Knight Engaged To Partner Harley Rodriguez

During a recent appearance on Sirius XM’s The Jenny McCarthy Show, Jonathan Knight of New Kids on the Block revealed that he asked his boyfriend, Harley Rodriguez, to marry him during their recent trip to Africa

“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 told host McCarthy on Tuesday.

Creating more beautiful memories together!

“We were on the Zambezi river — it’s right above Victoria Falls — we took a night time raft dinner, just the four of us out on the river, there was like a hippopotamus in the background.”

“Oh, and it was a super moon. It was just absolutely beautiful, it was so romantic.”

Knight and Rodriguez have been together for more than eight years.

“I went out and bought rings three weeks before we left for Africa. He had no clue,” he said.
