Leonard proposed to Martinez three years ago, she revealed in a June TikTok. In the video, she said she was ready for another proposal from Leonard, after turning down his first marriage inquiry.

"My boyfriend and I got pregnant only three months into dating in 2018. So, we barely knew each other," she said. "The whole pregnancy was really difficult and really not fun. We were both really pissed at each other for a number of reasons," she said in another TikTok post.

"Our daughter Ruth was born February 2nd, 2019. And immediately when she was born, so much of our stress and anxiety and resentment that had been happening throughout the pregnancy kind of faded away. And I felt like, this is the first time where we really got a chance to fall in love with each other."

"We sorted through a lot in couple's therapy and now I feel ready to say yes. So, we'll see what happens. I do foresee a proposal sometime in the near future."
