Who is jillian michaels dating now
The rock-solid duo have faced plenty of ups and downs during their time together, including the heartbreak of failed pregnancy attempts and the challenging adoption process – but through it all, their relationship only became stronger.Jillian and Heidi were overjoyed to be able to adopt daughter Lukensia (now five years old) from Haiti, the same week Heidi gave birth to their son Phoenix in 2012.She was right: Since Lu came home on May 12, Michaels and Rhoades have slowly introduced her to her new life. “I turned around for five seconds the other day and Lu had spaghetti all over her hair.” But it’s messy moments like these that Michaels looks forward to the most.“She’s never seen dogs before, so she was terrified when we got home, but she’s gotten much better,” says Michaels, who has a Chihuahua mix, an Italian greyhound mix and a shih tzu mix. “She thinks a banana is a gift from God.” As for quality time, “the newborn needs breast milk, so when he’s fed and Lu is good, Heidi and I swap kids and bond, bond, bond,” Michaels says. He almost jumped out of my arms.” As for expanding the family? “I want to be in the moment and enjoy all the nuances of their growth and development. I can’t wait for every day.” So even though she hasn’t been to the gym in two weeks and has started drinking coffee again after giving it up two years ago for health reasons, Michaels isn’t sweating the lifestyle changes. “It’s impossible to put yourself first when you’re a mom.“I came to the conclusion that moving forward, I need to be able to have an impact on the outcome of what I do. The "Just Jillian" reality star and celebrity personal trainer is engaged to her longtime girlfriend, Heidi Rhoades.“I was like, ‘Okay, it’s not meant to be,'” says Michaels.
While commentators on TV shows would call her “abusive” – and one even quipped “about what kind of mom I must be,” Michaels recalls with a shudder – things only got worse when, this past season, she was accused of cheating by allowing her team to take caffeine pills (a move Michaels continues to stand behind).You just know in the deepest part of your being that you are meant to find this little soul and guide them through life.” Around the same time she submitted her adoption application, Michaels was getting more serious with Rhoades, a former music manager whom she met through mutual friends.“We were dating without any pretense,” says Michaels.The couple’s growing family is something of a “safe haven” for Jillian, who dotes on her children.“The only place where there’s a solace and a respite and a safe haven is with my family,” she revealed.“And Heidi is the nucleus of that family.
