Leonard and Leonard shared two children, and they were both raising them together. However, Leonard was also thinking about their romantic future.

“We want to take some time just for us,” Martinez exclusively told Us Weekly in December 2020. “It has been so much about kids in the past three years. We’re like, ‘OK, maybe we can make something just about us,’ but we want to wait until COVID is over. We want to have, like, a massive wedding and can’t really do that right now.”

She continued at the time: “I love children. I love a house full of people. I’m one of five kids, and I just love that. My body needs a break, and we’ve been talking about exploring the option of fostering so that we can be a home for other children, even if it’s just temporarily.”

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

“Wondering how my boyfriend’s going to propose,” she captioned a TikTok video last month. “Remembering he already proposed to me three years ago and I said no but still took pics.”

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

“I was like, ‘This is so sweet but now is just not the time. I’m still super hormonal. I’m in the thick of postpartum.’ And also, like, our relationship still wasn’t in the best place,” she recalled in her June social media message. “We had a lot to sort through, a lot we had to talk through. Now, I feel ready to answer yes. So, we’ll see what happens. I do foresee a proposal sometime in the near future.”
