On Tuesday, a woman took to social media to share a video of her bae popping the big question. The lady, who has been identified by her Twitter handle @TheJazzyType, detailed their love story.
"This began when I was 14 and he was 17. At 16, I gave birth to our now nine-year-old son. Fast forward, I just graduated with my MPH & he is a practicing Attorney in Louisiana. This journey wasn’t easy, but this was always the plan #Mathews #GodsWill," she wrote.
