Fitness trainer Jillian Michaels is engaged! Yes, she is all set to marry her longtime love, DeShanna Marie Minuto.
Speaking to PEOPLE, Michaels, 47, confirmed that she got engaged to Minuto, 36, on Saturday. Michaels reportedly popped the question with a 7-carat emerald-cut diamond that was crafted by a family friend and specialty jeweler at H&H Jewelers in Miami.
"DeShanna is 'all the things' — beautiful, smart, funny, creative, quirky, passionate ... I could run down the list of adjectives. Those characteristics obviously attract you to someone. But it's the quality of their character that makes you think 'Thank God for this person laying next to me' every night when you fall asleep," Michaels tells PEOPLE.
"It's easy to stay together when everything is going great, but when real life sets in and things get messy, challenging, scary, and even downright ugly — that's when the truth reveals itself. And this woman has revealed herself to be strong beyond measure, wise beyond her years, and loving beyond my wildest dreams. I am so grateful to officially call her mine," she added.
The two have been dating since 2018 and recently marked their three-year anniversary.
In an Instagram post, marking the anniversary, Michael wrote, "We are all asleep until we fall in love' Happy Anniversary @deshannamarie ❤️ I adore you."
Micheals had marked their second anniversary by thanking her partner for "showing me how much love gives and how hard it works" and "for teaching me something new everyday."
"Thank you for making me a better person. Thank you for being you and sharing yourself with me. I love you more," she had written on Instagram, along with a photo of them.
