I’ve never had an issue with it.” They were engaged in November 2018 but were met with some push back from family. Joy posted on Instagram, “three years ago today I packed up my Jeep with all of my earthly belongings to move to California to be with a guy I had been dating for six months.” She said, “I was making a huge leap of faith with a guy I hadn’t known that long, but who already felt like home.” She went on to say it was the best decision she ever made.
