In 2010, everything changed when Kristi was spotted wearing a ring. Their fans were finally relieved and excited for their new beginnings only to realize later that the ring was just a promise ring. However, months later in the same year, during December, Michaels got down on one knee to propose to her, in their VH1 reality show. She waited for this moment for well over a decade, so she didn’t waste a second to say ‘yes!’. A joyous moment at last.

It all looked bright and dreamy for their family in the first year of their engagement. Unfortunately, after two years of being engaged, the pair called off the engagement and separated for good leaving fans and followers sad and heartbroken. 

The statement that they issued said they would remain great friends and were committed to jointly raising their daughters. As to why the pair didn't get married remains a mystery. They remain close friends to each other and co-parent their daughters, but neither of the couples has tied the knot.
