Jillian Michaels Is Engaged to Her Girlfriend Heidi Rhoades - Get All the Scoop on Their New Diamond Rings!

03/09/2016 at 12:11 PM ET

You probably know Jillian Michaels as the tough-as-nails, no-nonsense trainer from The Biggest Loser who would push contestants to run that extra mile regardless of their tears and protestations. But Tuesday night’s episode of her reality show Just Jillian on E! proved that behind those abs of steel is still the heart of a softie as Michaels got down on one knee and popped the question to her longterm partner Heidi Rhoades. But in a surprising twist on the traditional proposal, the trainer actually ended up putting a bigger diamond ring on her own finger!

On the season finale of her reality show, Michaels brought her future fiancé into a private screening room and played a tearjerking video montage that told the story of the couple’s journey together, from the adventures they’ve shared to the beautiful children they’ve raised together. At the end of the video all of the couples friends and family, who were also in attendance, helped Jillian ask the most important question of the night: Will you marry me? But since she had already given Rhoades a large diamond ring back in 2012 when it was first rumored that the pair were engaged, the fitness guru ended up giving herself an oversized diamond band and giving her girlfriend a more modest, but equally stunning, band to pair with the one she already has.

Both rings are by jeweler Martin Katz (a red carpet fixture), with Jillian’s featuring 17 half-carat emerald-cut diamonds set in a platinum eternity band for a total count of 8.86 carats. Heidi’s 18-karat white gold eternity band, on the other hand, is microset with 153 diamonds for a total of .74 carats. Nothing says “I want to spend the rest of my life doing burpees with you” quite like a whole slew of glittering diamonds.

What do you think of Jillian and Heidi’s rings? Which is your favorite?

Too bad there will never be a real wedding. Just a sad little civil union.

So Jillian proposed … gave herself over 8 carats of diamonds, but only gave her fiance less than a carat. Shows who’s the more “important” figure in the relationship.

My response to you ‘guest’ is crawl out of the hole you’ve been in. Marriage equality is has been nation wide for almost a year, they will have a “real” wedding, complete with a “real” piece of paper just like any other married couple…..
