The couple met at HEB Grocery Store on December 15, 2023. It was a brief encounter, Don and Gina spoke about what they were going to do after they left the store. Gina was impressed that he was going to get some of his mom's favorite things and take them to her. Don asked to see Gina again and she said yes. She thought 'he seems like a great guy, let's see what happens'.
The proposal took place at the jewelry store with Don asking Gina what type of ring she'd like and after she picked one he pulled out his wallet and told the sales clerk "I'll take that one" to which Gina replied "You didn't ask me to marry you yet" so Don then said "Will you marry me?" and of course Gina said yes.
