The duo started dating and three months later, they got engaged. Lane even asked for her dad’s permission before asking her to marry him.

I thought he was going to say that he was getting out of coaching and wanted a job. Instead, he asked if he could marry my daughter. I called her to ask her, ‘Is he serious?’ I wasn’t supposed to ruin the surprise. They bought an engagement ring that same day.
