On Friday, May 28 I proposed to the love of my life and they said Yes.

I feel so blessed and fortunate. We have both grown so much since we first met, and the fact that we have both been able to grow into better, stronger, more secure individuals while still being in a relationship together makes me have faith that this partnership will last a lifetime.

For the first time we’re both experiencing unconditional love. The truest kind of love.

The kind where we may not always like each other but will ALWAYS love and respect each other.

“I promise to always be your rock, support, and shoulder to lean on – no matter what. I got you. Ily.”

No More Drama

Courtney’s engagement to Chris has been a welcome-break from the drama of their daily life, as they recently revealed that Chrissy Teigen had told them to kill themself in 2011.

The influencer and wife of musician John Legend publicly apologised and wrote on social media: “Not a lot of people are lucky enough to be held accountable for all their past bulls–t in front of the entire world. I’m mortified and sad at who I used to be.”

Teigen’s sorries were not well received as Courtney shared on Instagram a screenshot showing the social media darling had blocked them.

Courtney wrote: “I accept her apology and forgive her. But the truth remains the same, I have never heard from her or her camp in private.

“In fact, she blocked me on Twitter.

“All of me wants to believe this is a sincere apology, but it feels like a public attempt to save her partnerships with Target and other brands who are realizing her “wokeness” is a broken record.”
