She thanked her for teaching something new every day, making her a better person, being her true self, and sharing herself with the fitness coach.
The happy couple recently celebrated their third anniversary. And for her third anniversary, she shared a cute selfie of her and Marie relaxing in bed with a caption- we are all asleep until we fall in love. Then she wished a Happy anniversary to her lady love and wrote I adore you.
Jillian Popped The Question
In November 2021, Michael popped up a yes or no question to Minuto with a ring in her hand. And her girlfriend said yes and agreed to continue her life journey with her. The big name in the fitness industry proposed a 7-carat emerald cut diamond flanked by two single carats on both sides, crafted by a family friend and specialty jeweler at H&H Jewels in Miami.
The Keeping It Real: Conversations with Jillian Michael show host soon shared the news on Instagram. Jillian mentioned the days of them being together and cheered for the future. She wrote- 1153 days, and here’s to thousands more. She then blissfully told her fans that Minuto said yes.
Jillian Praised Marie Minuto
The founder of fashion label Letterino 85, Minuto, also shared a selfie of them showing the stunning ring on her account.
In an interview, Jillian praised Marie Minuto for being all the things. She said that DeShanna is beautiful, smart, creative, quirky, and passionate, and she can keep going with new adjectives. Jillian said such characteristics are attractive, and these qualities make you grateful to God that- Thank God for this person is laying next to you every night. She further continued Minuto has revealed herself to be strong beyond measure, wise beyond her years, and loving beyond her wildest dreams. The 47-year-old trainer is grateful to call her hers officially.
Jillian Michaels Splits With Heidi Rhoades
Before Minuto, Jillian Michaels was engaged to her long-term fiancee Heidi Rhoades. They got engaged in 2015 and called to quit in 2018. Michaels and Rhodes were together for nine years and had two children. They adopted Lukensia, their 12-year-old daughter in May 2012 and Heidi gave birth to their 10-year-old son, Phoenix also in May 2012.
Now, the ex-couple are friends and co-parenting. Jillian said that kids demand 100 percent of your attention. So it is a nice thing and a welcome distraction to get her out of her head.
