HomeTVThe Young and The RestlessY&R’s Julia Pace Mitchell Gets Engaged Luke Kerr July 11, 2011 The Young and The Restless 9 Comments Congratulations are in order for The Young and the Restless star Julia Pace Mitchell. According to Essence.com, her boyfriend Stephen L. Hightower proposed to Mitchell over the recent holiday weekend, after accidently texting a picture of the ring to her instead of his sister. “Stephen came running in the door after texting me a photo of the ring,” Julia says. “He dropped to one knee and said, ‘I was trying to find the perfect moment but every moment is perfect with you. Will you marry me, please?’ I was overwhelmed with joy, I immediately yelled ‘YES!’ and jumped around thanking God! I had a wave of joy, and then came tears and a sense of calm and comfort. 9 Responses Ryan-Scott July 12, 2011 Congrats to her! Log in to Reply An_Emmy_For_Julia_Pace_Mitchell July 12, 2011 She looks so beautiful and did you know Julia was named by CBS Soaps in Depth magazine as ‘The Most Beautiful Woman in Soap Operas’? Most people find it difficult to look past that exterior beauty of hers and see what a complex and brilliant actress she is. She brings vulnerability, intense devotion and comedy to the role of Sofia Winters. BTW, HAPPY ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY TO PACE-MITCHELL. She joined the cast of Y&R one year ago this week.

Just don’t tell me he is a high school teacher. Log in to Reply Angie Lucy July 12, 2011 The proposal will probably be more memorable this way. It’s sweet and goofy. Congrats, Julia!

Heck, he looks a little like Steve Harvey! I like Julia but wearing pink eyeshadow to match your pink dress is kinda high school;)and that black has gotta go!
