Lane was first introduced to Layla by his dad, Monte who was the team’s defensive coordinator. They first met at Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
At the time, Layla used to serve for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers special events department. Lane decided to settle down after dating his girlfriend Layla for about three years and got engaged.
He then talked with Layla's dad, former NFL quarterback John Reaves for the marriage proposal. Reaves explained:
"The receptionist at my office buzzed me and said Lane was here to see me.”
“I thought he was going to say that he was getting out of coaching and wanted a job. Instead he asked if he could marry my daughter. I called her to ask her, ‘Is he serious?’ (laughs) I wasn’t supposed to ruin the surprise. They bought an engagement ring that same day."

"We will maintain an amicable relationship with respect for each other as we raise these three wonderful children,"
