Well, they say decisions taken in haste tend to fall apart rather quickly but contrary to the popular belief, it is yet to fall apart for the pair as they are going strong for around 15-years.
Talking about why they took the decision of tying the knot so soon, she said in an interview,
"But I just felt like, wow, this guy is really honest. So even though we dated for a short time before he proposed, I just knew it was right because I felt like I wanted to see him every day."
Although she was never aware of him as she grew up in Toronto, Canada so she had no idea regarding his background. Their marriage life is like a fairy tale as still, they love each other like they are new girlfriend and boyfriend.
Last year on August 30, 2017, Donnie shared a picture with his wife marking their 14th wedding anniversary.
The couple is a proud parent of two children, a boy, James, 10, and, a girl, Jasmine, 14. His wife also paid tribute to him during the Father's Day as she considers him the best father for her children.

"It's all about 'happy wife, happy life. I think it's important that men be more tolerant, so I listen to my wife. Besides, she always makes the better and more thoughtful decisions for our family, so I trust her completely."
