“When we did scared famous I use to say so many things jokingly not knowing it would become real life,” he wrote in January 2019. “I am so in love with you. The respect you give me, the way you uplift me and make me feel like a man is something people wouldn’t believe. I get to be with the real you and I love every second of it. You make me feel like I can do anything and I love you so much for it. I don’t need to look any further because I found you.”

He continued, “I wanna scream from the highest mountain on earth how much I love you but until I get there I’ll just tell you here. I love you so much ❤️ you complete me and I can’t wait for you to officially be my wife.”
