Who is DeShanna Marie Minuto?
DeShanna Marie Minuto is a renowned style originator and organizer of the attire brand, Letterino, in New York and Los Angeles. An alum of New York University, Minuto spent her early life as an incentive chief at some New York offices. She mainly helped people redo brands among all classes of business. Minuto's known for bringing changes to her grandfather’s WWII Bomber and her father’s 1960s biker coat.
Talking about Minuto, 36, Michaels told PEOPLE, "DeShanna is 'all the things' — beautiful, smart, funny, creative, quirky, passionate ... I could run down the list of adjectives. Those characteristics obviously attract you to someone. But it's the quality of their character that makes you think 'Thank God for this person laying next to me' every night when you fall asleep."
"It's easy to stay together when everything is going great, but when real life sets in and things get messy, challenging, scary, and even downright ugly — that's when the truth reveals itself. And this woman has revealed herself to be strong beyond measure, wise beyond her years, and loving beyond my wildest dreams. I am so grateful to officially call her mine," she added.
Previously speaking with PEOPLE about her relationship with Minuto, Michaels had opened up about working out together with her fiancé. Minuto was once a college athlete. "What's interesting about DeShanna is she was like, a D1 athlete — some crazy great athlete … and is very fit, very lean, and was like, 'Okay, I'm going to start working out,'" Michaels said. "And so I was like, 'Alright babe.'" "I gave her a little routine and she was like, 'I can't walk, I've been zombified, I hate you,' and then, over a couple of weeks … she's like, I just ran my mile in seven minutes and 15 seconds," Michaels added.
Before her relationship with Minuto, Michaels was engaged to Heidi Rhoades. The former duo split in 2018. Michaels and Rhoades share two children together -- daughter Lukensia, 11, and son Phoenix, nine.
