"Yesterday, I asked my best friend to marry me. The universe answered my prayers and brought me the kindest, most loving, beautiful, fun soul..."
Another picture shared on Kopper Joi's page saw her and Tran showing off PDA. The latter smiled heartily as her fiancee embraced her from behind. The second slide was the description of the words "love and happiness."

KENNEDY AND BILL'S MARRIAGE
Kennedy and Bill got married on May 26, 1985, after the former was diagnosed with endometriosis and encountered a nasty divorce in 1982. Kennedy once noted that after her split from her ex-husband, Leon, she never thought she would be happy.

Through it all, he remains an amazing husband and father who is all about instilling religious, educational, financial, and social values in his kids.
