The star shared that she wanted to clear the assumption that she was with him for six months. The youngster also noted that their decision to get married was further prompted by the quarantine, which seemed like "dog years."

Bella shared that they were together through the quarantine months. In her defense, the TV personality made it known that she did not feel strange about getting engaged at eighteen because the occurrence was not uncommon around her.

She said: "In the south so many people get married so young. Like, my parents got married at 18, my brother got married at 18, my grandparents married at 18. It's very common around here…"

Speaking with Fox News, Bella shared that she was really excited about taking a new phase of life with Mayo. The media personality noted that her partner informed both her parents about his intentions and she was unaware of it all.

Although she once shared that online schooling was not easy, Bella seems to get by while preparing for her forthcoming wedding.
