The fitness trainer, who is 49 years old, told People on Wednesday that she hurt her back in the spring or summer of 2021 when she slipped and fell in her bathroom and hit her back on the bathtub.
Her accident story kept her fans interested in her personal life. Like who helped her get better after her injuries. So that was her soulmate, DeShanna Marie Minuto, whom she has been with since 2018. In this article, we will talk in-depth about her wife and their relationship.
Who Is Jillian Michaels’ Wife?
DeShanna Marie Minuto is a fashion designer in New York City. She has her own line called Letterino, which sells vintage jackets that have been fixed up. Minuto started working out with Michaels because she was also a fitness freak. In 2018, Michaels told People that Minuto’s girlfriend said the workouts were hard enough for her.
Michaels said, “What’s interesting about DeShanna is that she was a D1 athlete, which means she was a really good athlete… “Okay, I’m going to start working out. He’s in great shape and thin.” I gave her a little routine, and she said, “I can’t walk, I’ve been turned into a zombie, and I hate you.” But after a few weeks, she got used to it. “I just ran a mile in 7 minutes and 15 seconds,” she says.
Inside Jillian Michaels and DeShanna Marie Minuto’s Relationship
Jillian Michaels and DeShanna Marie Minuto started dating near the end of 2018, but it wasn’t made public until the middle of 2019 that they were together.

Michaels replied in the thread, “You sure do. You make me feel special.”
Michaels talked to People about their relationship after they got engaged. She said, “It’s easy to stay together when everything is going well, but when real life starts and things get messy, hard, scary, or even downright ugly, that’s when the truth comes out.”
“And this woman has shown me that she is stronger than I could have imagined, smarter than her years, and more loving than I could have imagined. I’m so happy to finally be able to call her mine.”
Michaels told DeShanna Marie Minuto on Instagram on November 27, 2021, that she was going to marry her. They got married in 2022.
