“Again, this is the girl that I’ve been crushing on for 5-6 years, she’s actually right here. My second girlfriend ever and I proposed to her. She got pregnant, and we did a baby reveal party in Brazil. Now they’re able to do it through the blood to find out like the sex of the baby. Yeah, it’s a trip. At that time, I believe she was 2 and half months pregnant, she’s 4 now.”

“So right before we did the baby reveals, and we popped the balloon and they hand me the mic, and then I’m sorry to say everybody but I had to bend the knee. That’s the only time I’ll bend the knee. I told her how much I love her, how much she means to me, and that I want her to be the happiest woman on earth. To make me the happiest guy on earth, that’s the whole purpose.”
