As it turns out, Magripilis's proposal plans have been in the works for a while.
“He planned it a year ago when I was away for Eurovision," said Jessica. And, when it happened, she was totally surprised.
“It was freaky to me. It was as if he was going to pass me my phone cause he was taking photos. Then he’s down on one knee. He said 'are you going to say yes or what cause I’m still here'," said Jessica.
Magripilis went about the engagement the traditional way, first seeking Jessica's father's permission to ask for hr hand in marriage.
“There was one moment where he said 'I’m gonna go with your dad.' That was his moment of asking dad for my hand. He said 'I’ve come on this drive to ask you if I can marry your daughter.' I think my dad choked up and said 'yes, of course, I can think of no better person. I’ve been waiting for this moment'," said Jessica.
And it seems the couple may already be thinking of having children in the not too distant future.
"[Magripilis is] real deadly with kids, all my nieces and nephews love him. I can see kids in three years."
