You’ve met Ricci and Mbaye before.
Ricci is one of my nearest and dearest girlfriends. We met six years ago at the newspaper I still write for.
In 2008, she left Florida to work as a freelance multimedia journalist in West Africa, where she met and fell in love with a handsome Senegalese soccer player named Mbaye. Two years ago, I grilled them about their relationship and then last year I introduced you to their baby.
Now I’m asking you to vote for Mbaye in Redbook Magazine’s 2012 Hot Husbands contest.
If you got your hands on the July issue, you may have seen him striking a GQ pose on page 10. He’s now one of 25 finalists in the Hottie Hubby face-off, so please, please cast a vote for him by visiting this link or this link.
Never mind that she’s worked for The New York Times, Ricci desperately wants to claim that she’s married to Redbook’s Hottest Husband of 2012.
Seriously. Is there no greater claim-to-fame? 🙂
PS. Photo snapped at the Saturday Morning Market in downtown St. Pete – one of my favorite places to take visiting friends and family. If that knit hat with ears doesn’t scream sex appeal, I don’t know what does.
