‘Surprisingly when we started working with each other we didn’t like each other that much, but as I got to know her and we got to talking I was like ..wait, there is something here and I started liking her and at some point I just looked at her and I was like’re going to be my wife. I’m going to marry you’.


He added coyingly;

‘This was like five years ago, yeah she was reminding me the other day. She’s like, do you know you told me you were going to marry me, before you started dating me?,
