While raising two young children together, the college student and Leonard had been pondering their romantic future.

“We want to take some time just to ourselves,” Martinez said exclusively Us weekly in December 2020. β€œThe last three years have been so much about kids. We say, ‘okay, maybe we can do something about ourselves’, but we want to wait until COVID is over. We want to have something like a huge wedding and we can’t really do that at the moment.

She continued at the time: “I love children. I love having a full house. I’m one of five kids and I just love it. My body needs a break and we’ve talked about exploring the possibility of foster care so we can be a home for other children, even if it’s only temporary.”

Though Martinez said “yes” to the studio owner’s July romance proposal, it wasn’t the first time he’d popped the question.

“I wonder how my boyfriend is going to propose,” she captioned a TikTok video last month. “I remember he proposed to me three years ago and I said no but still took pictures.”

After answering questions from curious followers, Martinez explained that her now-fiancΓ© first proposed shortly after Ruth’s arrival.

“I was like, ‘This is so cute, but now is just not the right time. I’m still super hormonal. I’m in the middle of postpartum.” And besides, our relationship still wasn’t at its best,” she recalled on her June social media message. β€œWe had a lot to clarify, a lot to talk about. Now I feel ready to say yes. So, we’ll see what happens. I foresee a proposal in the near future.”
