It turns out that tough-as-nails Jillian Michaels does, in fact, have a soft side. The "Biggest Loser" trainer proposed to her longtime girlfriend Heidi Rhoades with an emotional video documenting their love story. In the finale of her show "Just Jillian," Michaels created a short film for Heidi, starting off with the text "In a world where it's tough to connect, one woman found that someone special and came to discover that where there's love, there's hope, happiness, adventure and endless possibilities."

What follows is a collage of photos of their relationship, from traveling the world together to raising two beautiful children. And, as the video comes to a close, you see some of the couple's friends and family holding up signs saying "Will," "you" and "marry," before Michaels is seen holding the final card: "Me."

Michaels then gets down on one knee to propose, starting with "I know I'm an ass---- a lot of the time, but if you will continue to put up with me, I would like you to marry me." Rhoades laughs and then says "yes!"

But the biggest surprise of all is the fact that Jillian gives Rhoades and herself rings! Why? You see, Michaels gave Rhoades a large diamond ring back in 2012 (people, of course, thought they were engaged!). This time around, Michaels chose an 8-carat diamond band for herself and another smaller band to coordinate with Rhoades' ring. How sweet is that?
