Jillian Michaels Is Engaged!

And her surprise proposal will bring you to tears.

We all know Jillian Michaels as the hardcore and intense fitness guru, but on the season finale of her reality show on E!, we saw a side of her we have never seen before. 

The proposal begins in a private movie theater. Michaels and long term girlfriend Heidi Rhoades are gathered with friends and family to watch a movie. But not just any movie. What appears on the screen is the beginning of a proposal — a montage of all of the hallmark moments the couple has shared throughout their years together.

From adopting a child and having one of their own to travelling the world together and experiencing what it's like to be a family — the movie highlights everything. It ends with the couple's family and close friends holding four words every girl wants to hear’will you marry me?’

Quickly after, Michaels gets down on one knee and with a trembling voice tells her future wife, "I know I can be an ass**** sometimes, but if you will continue to put up with me, I would like you to marry me." How could anyone say no to that? 

Michaels had already bought a ring for Rhoades a while back, and there were rumors about the couple's engagement. But after Rhoades says yes, Michaels put a ring on her own finger, formalizing the engagement. 

Who knew the Jillian Michaels we've all learned to love (and hate) could be such a softie? Congratulations to the wonderful couple!
