Wollover told Inside Weddings that Morgan proposed to her in San Francisco while they were in a jewelry store for what she thought was just a stop to get one of his chains cleaned.

In 2011, the couple announced their engagement on the red carpet at the Emmy Awards. They welcomed their daughter in 2013 and wed the following year in a lavish wedding on an estate in Wollover's home state of New Jersey.

Morgan and Wollover's wedding was postponed for over a year after he was involved in a near-fatal car accident. In an interview with Essence, Wollover recalled being by Morgan's side through his recovery. She explained:

"When you choose to share a life with somebody, you want to choose the partner that’s going to ride with you through the good and the bad."

Wollover also explained to Essense that the public had a lot of misconceptions about their relationship because of their 18-year age difference and the fact that she used to be a model.

Wollover revealed that she is extremely family-orientated and hands-on when it comes to running her household and raising their daughter.
