On Saturday, Michaels, 47, proposed to Minuto, 36. In an exclusive interview with People, the American personal trainer gushed about her fiancée, describing the characteristics she admired the most about her.
“DeShannon is ‘everything’ — gorgeous, intelligent, witty, artistic, quirky, and passionate… I could go on and on with adjectives. Those qualities clearly draw you to someone. “But it’s the character quality of this person [sleeping]next to me that makes you think ‘Thank God for this person [lying]next to me every night when you fall asleep,” Michaels told the site.
She went on to say that while things are going well, it’s easy for couples to stay together, but when things become chaotic and frightening, many people leave in real life. She highlighted Minuto’s individual identity.
“And this woman has proven to be a force to be reckoned with, smart beyond her years, and loving beyond my greatest expectations.” Michaels continued, “I am very grateful to be able to formally name her mine.”
Minuto was proposed to by the founder of the Jillian Michaels Fitness App, who presented her with a 7-carat emerald-cut diamond surrounded by two single-carat trapezoid diamonds. The bling was created by a family friend and jeweler from H&H Jewels in Miami.
On Sunday, Michaels posted an Instagram photo of Minuto wearing the diamond ring she gave her. “Here’s to another 1153 days… and thousands more.” “She said yes,” she captioned the photo.
Michaels and Minuto have been together for three years. Michaels uploaded a video from one of their many vacations in October 2020 to commemorate their second anniversary as a couple.
“It’s hard for me to realize it’s been two years.” Thank you for showing me how much love provides and how hard it works, @deshannamarie,” the fitness instructor wrote. “Thank you for always teaching me something new. Thank you for helping me grow as a person.
Thank you for being who you are and for sharing that with me. I adore you even more… [red heart emoji]Happy Anniversary, darling.” Michaels re-enacted the scene last month by posting a photo of them on the bed. “Until we fall in love, we’re all sleeping.” @deshannamarie [red heart emoji]Happy Anniversary! “I adore you,” she captioned the photo.
Michaels and Minuto began dating in 2018. The former recently told People that she and her fiancée exercise together, but that even her fiancée, who is “extremely fit and very thin,” found her workout routines difficult.
