Please join us in congratulating THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS alum Abhi Sinha (ex-Ravi) on his engagement to Helen Kim! The couple were on a safari vacation in Africa in the middle of June, and he found the perfect moment to pop the question. "While at Sabi Sands we saw a beautiful bird called the Lilac Breasted Roller," Sinha explained. "Our guides told us that the feathers of these birds are very rare. They are so rare and valuable that often, local men will use the feathers to propose to women.
"While i wasn't able to obtain a Lilac Breasted Roller's feather, I did have a ring that I had been carrying close to the vest non-stop for several weeks," he continued. "And I couldn't think of a better place to propose than in Aboseli, right in front of Kilimanjaro. On June 17, 2019, I asked the love of my life to marry me. Best decision of my life. (Because she said yes!) I love you so much, Helen, and cannot wait to marry you. Fiancé has a nice ring to it for sure."
Sinha thanked his sister, Ava, for the beautiful photos of the proposal that he and his new fiancée shared on social media. Kim also thanked their family photographer when she shared her own perspective on the incredibly romantic moment.
"I knew going to Africa would be a special experience, but I didn't know just how much," Kim confided. "On June 17, while we were overlooking Mt. Kilimanjaro, my best friend asked me a question and I said yes! Seriously felt like I was in a dream and I'm still pinching myself expecting to wake up. But this is not a drill! Aabhi and I are for real engaged! Abhi, I love you so much and I'm so excited to plan the rest of our lives together!"
Best wishes to the happy couple for a lifetime of happiness together! For more on your favorite Y&R stars — past and present — keep reading the CBS edition of Soaps In Depth magazine.
