“I love being home. I have a fianceé now,” said Tyler. “We live together. We have dogs now and it’s absolutely great — I love it.” Don’t dogs just make everything better?
The 21-year-olds have known each other since childhood, and Tyler says he’s been in love with her for just as long. "[I knew] since I was 11," he told Us Weekly back in June. "I couldn't really put it into words when I was that young but I always had this really strong connection to her and it's just been something I can't really explain other than I want to marry you and be with you forever. You just know. You definitely just know and I know."
As for criticisms that the couple should wait until they're older to take such a major step,, Tyler tells Us Weekly, "I don't really like that excuse that I'm too young, it doesn't really make sense to me. I've been in love with her since I was 11 years old and she's the best thing that's happened to me in my entire life."
