Jillian Michaels got down on one knee and proposed to her longtime partner Heidi Rhoades on the season finale of her E! show, Just Jillian. Michaels and Rhoades have two kids together: Lukensia, who is 5 years old, and Phoenix, 3. Technically the pair have been engaged for about four months now, as the episode was filmed back in November, but they kept the big news under wraps so fans could hear it first on the show. "Heidi is the perfect person for me. The only place where there's like a solace," Jillian said on the show. "A safe haven is with my family, and Heidi is the nucleus of that family. She's the glue that really holds everything together and I think without that, I would be lost."

Michaels popped the question in a movie theater, surrounded by family and friends, after surprising Rhoades with a video that showed photos and videos of the couple's life and adventures together. It ended with photos of close family and friends holding up signs saying "Will you marry me?" After watching the adorable video, Michaels said to Rhoades, "I know I'm an a—hole all the time, but if you will continue to put up with me, I would like you to marry me."


Rhoades obviously said yes! And since she already has a ring, Michaels put one on her own finger. Both women were experiencing the waterworks, and after watching the video we have to say, we were reaching for the tissues, too.

A total girly girl, Jane loves everything about the wedding-planning process, but her favorite part has to be where it all starts: the engagement ring. She's a sucker for all things sparkly, especially in diamond form and sitting on your ring finger. But she can't count out those gorgeous bridal bouquets. They may not be diamonds, but they still hold a serious wow factor.
