“We could not contain this any longer!” Williams says of finally sharing the happy news.
They met in March of 2017, when Michelle attended a spiritual retreat in Arizona run by Johnson, a pastor and life coach who has also worked as a chaplain for pro sports teams including the Pittsburgh Steelers and L.A. Dodgers. “I was in a horrible, dark place,” says Williams, who had recently broke up with her ex. “I just needed to go somewhere where I could get a message of hope and restoration, rejuvenation — get connected to God.”
“The rest is history,” adds Johnson, who says their conversations soon moved from social media to text messages and frequent late-night FaceTime calls. “We spent almost three months without even seeing each other, just building a strong foundation on the phone and through FaceTime; it was really built on friendship and communication.”
The couple shared their first kiss last July, while in the Dominican Republic for a wedding! “I told her, ‘I’ve been looking. I don’t want to look anymore. I’m done. My search is over,'” Johnson recalls of the moment they decided to relationship official.
When her husband-to-be knew he wanted to propose, he planned an elaborate ploy to involve Williams’s family in popping the question. Last month, he secretly traveled to her native Rockford, Illinois, to ask for her for family’s blessing, and videotaped the entire trip!
Then on March 21 ( exactly one year after Johnson flirted with Williams and he accused her of dissing him) Johnson returned to the Pebble Beach, California, hotel where he began their texting banter. “We were replaying the whole text message, recreating the moment,” Johnson says. “I was like, ‘Hey, what about if you and me connected?’ She sent me back a text saying, ‘I’ll check my availability.’ And I signaled over to the waiter, and she brought out the iPad and played the video of me being on the proposal tour.”
“I started weeping and wailing when I see all these special people,” says Williams of Johnson’s video with her family. “Towards the end of the video, something in my head said, ‘Pull yourself together! He’s about to propose! Stop all this crying!'”
Sure enough, Johnson got down on one knee and proffered a 5-carat engagement ring from L.A. jeweler Denis Mahgerefteh. “I was just losing it!” adds Williams.
