About time! In the season finale of her reality series Just Jillian, fitness pro Jillian Michaels proposed to her longtime partner, Heidi Rhoades, with a romantic video history of their relationship. The Biggest Loser alum, 42, has been grappling with the idea of this final commitment throughout the show’s freshman season, but in Tuesday’s episode, she finally popped the question.
The video, which was played in a movie theater with Michaels and Rhoades’ friends and family present, featured highlights from their lives together, ending with their pals holding up signs asking Rhoades to marry Michaels. After the clip ended, the workout queen got down on one knee to properly propose.
“I know I’m an a**hole a lot of the time, but if you will continue to put up with me, I would like you to marry me,” Michaels asked her tearful partner.
Naturally, she said yes, and their loved ones cheered in the background. The couple share daughter, Lu, and son, Phoenix.
“Heidi is the perfect person for me. The only place where there's like a solace…a safe-haven is with my family," Michaels said following the proposal.
The fitness instructor even got an engagement ring for herself to make things a bit more official. She told a fan on Twitter that the proposal happened, “About 4 months ago :) but @PerezHilton busted me with the ring on!”
The ring Michaels is referring to is an emerald cut, diamond Eternity band set in platinum by Martin Katz. Rhoades' ring, also by Martin Katz, features a small white diamond, Irena Eternity band set in 18 karat white gold.
