In response to her post, Minuto, 36, also shared the same pic and wrote “YES,” in the caption along with an engagement ring emoji.
Michaels disclosed to People outlet that on Saturday, 27th November, she popped the question to her girlfriend Minuto with a 7-carat emerald cut diamond. The diamond was crafted exclusively for her by a family friend and designer jeweler at H&H Jewelers in Miami.
Michaels said, “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.”
She continued praising her with compliments and said, “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.”
They both celebrated their third anniversary as a couple and announced their engagement news after celebrating their three years of togetherness.
Michaels captured the special day with a selfie that seems to be taken from their bed.
Last year in 2020, Minuto uploaded a series of photos on the social media platform Instagram to recollect the trip they took to Japan earlier.
She recalled a hot air balloon ride they took together and time spent scuba diving with sharks along with other memories like cliff jumping, jet skiing, and more activities during their excursion.
Minuto mentioned in the caption by writing, “Taking it back to Japan where the adventures began. From go karting on the highways of Tokyo, to being woken up by a hippo at our bedroom door for a 5am boat ride across the Nile. Hot air balloon African safaris.”
She concluded her post by writing, “The list goes on but let’s just say YOU KEEP THINGS EXCITING. Words lack strength when it comes to describing you Ralphy. I’m thankful every single day that you are mine ❤️ I love you beyond and look forward to more life-threatening adventures.”
After staying together for almost ten years with Heidi Rhoades, Michaels called off her engagement with Rhoades in 2018.
Michaels and Rhoades share two kids, daughter Lukensia (11 years) and son Phoenix (9 years). In 2012, the couple adopted Lukensia from Haiti while Rhoades gave birth to Phoenix in the same year.
