Look, I'm not the sort of old-fashioned person who cares whether or not my reality stars are married before they procreate. That's not why I'm incredibly curious if Little Women: LA stars Terra Jole and Joe Gnoffo are engaged or not. I'm intrigued because we've seen their tumultuous relationship unfold, and after the birth of their daughter, Penelope, I'm hoping for smooth sailing.
But there are no plans for Terra and Joe to tie the knot anytime soon — they have a newborn baby, remember? I don't think they'll have time to sleep, let alone plan a wedding, for at least the next six months. Hmm... and around six months from now, the next season of Little Women: LA should start filming. Terra and Joe seem to balance keeping their day-to-day lives private with very public displays of affection at big events covered by the reality cameras, so could this be Wedding Madness: Part II? Just imagine what the fights over who gets to be Terra's maid of honor would be like. And I bet Todd will end up being Joe's best man somehow, just to fuel the feuding flames.
But I think I'm getting a little ahead of myself, here, because as you can see, Terra doesn't even accept the proposal in the clip from the Terra's Little Family premiere that People nabbed.
So did she say yes or no??!!!
She Sent A Suggestive Tweet
Would you thank someone for mentioning the super awkward proposal that you turned down? Mm, don't think so.
She's Been Hiding Her Left Hand
I've been searching high and low for an Instagram picture of Terra's left hand to scope for a ring. And I totally failed — from OBGYN selfies to promo pictures for Terra's Little Family, she's been keeping all five of those fingers out of view. The closest I could find was this collage from a baby shower just before Penelope was born, where looks like something sparkly might be on that ring finger, but I can't be sure.
They're Not Broken Up
Joe doesn't seem like the type of guy who would take it lightly if his proposal was denied. He's also kind of impulsive, so I'd half expect breakup rumors to surface if Terra were to demur on getting married.
Regardless, They're Great Parents
Baby Penelope is in good hands regardless of whether or not one of those hands displays a ring. When Terra and Joe found out about the pregnancy, the rest of the cast was skeptical, but they've made parenthood work for them. Engaged, schmengaged. But that doesn't mean that I'm not going to watch the Terra's Little Family premiere to see how Terra responds to Joe's hilltop proposal. I'm dying to see this couple get a happy ending.
