In an interview with People Sonya Deville announced that she is now engaged to her girlfriend Toni Cassano. The two made it official last week on February 15, with Deville asking at at a wine cellar cave in Towaco, NJ. Here are highlights:

On asking Cassano to marry her: “I could go on for days about the way I feel about this woman, I never knew love could feel so happy and safe all at the same time. I found my best friend, my soul mate and my life partner all in one incredible human. She is the epitome of my ride or die. To be able to show her and her two daughters how much they all mean to me was what this proposal was all about. They are my world and now we are one family forever together.”

On accepting herself: “It’s so cool to me to be in this position right now, to be engaged as a gay female in the WWE, and to have proposed to my fiancée. Because I look back at seven years ago, eight years ago when I wasn’t even openly out yet, and I was hiding relationships, and I was still trying to figure out my comfortability with being gay and who I was. So, I think it’s crazy to see the evolution of my life and my journey and the fans that have been able to come along that journey with me. I think now it’s just so cool to be like, ‘I never thought I’d be here, but look guys, I’m here and you guys can do it too. It’s okay to be who you are. It’s okay to love who you love, and it’s so special and so important to accept yourself.”
