Maddie & Tae’s Maddie Marlow got engaged to her boyfriend, Jonah Font, late last month, they confirmed to PEOPLE.
“He is my best friend, and I’m truly engaged to my dream guy!,” Maddie tells PEOPLE. The couple met during her sophomore year of high school in Texas. “I love that we’ve been together for so long before we got engaged because we know everything about each other. We’ve learned how to really love each other, how to communicate and how to be a rock for the other person,” she says.
Her engagement ring has a special significance. “The center stone on my ring is the diamond from my mom’s original engagement ring. My parents have been married 25 years!” explains Marlow. “My dad bought her a new ring a while back, so she kept her original diamond to pass down to me or my sister someday. It is so special having an heirloom ring because I will get to pass it down one day too.”
