American fitness trainer Jillian Michaels, 47 is elated. She and her lesbian partner, DeShanna Marie Minuto, 36 decided to take their relationship to the next higher level. Jillian proposed to her girlfriend on Saturday 27th November 2021. Jillian told People magazine:

“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.

Jillian added:

“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,”

The couple is in a romantic relationship since 2018. They celebrated their third anniversary recently. Jillian wrote on her Instagram on the occasion:

Earlier in 2020, during their second anniversary, Jillian had again taken to social media to thank DeShanna for her intense love and teachings. She had captioned a photo of DeShanna:

“I thank you for showing me how much love gives and how hard it works” and “for teaching me something new everyday.”

Jillian and DeShanna and their workouts

Earlier, the personal trainer had revealed to People how she and DeShanna do their workouts together. She had also expressed that though DeShanna was a college athlete, Jillian’s workouts are tough for her to perform. She had said:

“What’s interesting about DeShanna is she was like, a D1 athlete — some crazy great athlete … and is very fit, very lean, and was like, ‘Okay, I’m going to start working out. And so I was like, ‘Alright babe.’ ” 

“I gave her a little routine and she was like, ‘I can’t walk, I’ve been zombified, I hate you,’ and then, over a couple of weeks … she’s like, I just ran my mile in seven minutes and 15 seconds,”
