" ... And Donnie's shirt said 'Me' with a question mark. And I just started crying."

    She then showed off her gorgeous, giant 10-carat yellow sapphire ring to the ladies.

    The couple have been dating since July 2013 and share three children between them. Donnie has two sons, Xavier and Elijah, from his relationship with his ex-wife, while Jenny also has a son, Evan, from her marriage to Asher.
