DeShanna also took the opportunity to show off her engagement ring.

In the photo, she had on a blue and white striped shirt.

Jillian wrote: “1153 days… here’s to thousands more.”

The engaged couple has been dating since 2018.

Jillian was previously engaged to Heidi Rhoades before breaking up in 2018. 

The TV star and Heidi share their two children: daughter Lukensia, 11, and son Phoenix, 9.


The fitness trainer confirmed the engagement news to PEOPLE.

She told the site: “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 continued: “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.”

The Biggest Loser star 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.”

The NBC star concluded: “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.”  

According to the outlet, the seven-carat emerald-cut diamond featured two single carat and trapezoid diamonds on each side.

The ring was crafted by a family friend, who happened to be a specialty jeweler, at H&H Jewelers in Miami. 


DeShanna is a New York City fashion designer with her own fashion line, Letterino, where she also has sold reconstructed vintage jackets.

A fitness junkie, who was also a D1 athlete, started working out with her partner, which was even tough for her.

Jillian also told People, “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.”

DeShanna traveled extensively and has visited Japan, Belize, and Spain with Jillian.

The two announced they were officially in a relationship until mid-2019.
