Duff Goldman was shaving his bald pate when he came to a realization. It was “like a mule kick to the heart,” he wrote in an Instagram post. He was in love with his girlfriend, Johnna Colbry, and wanted to marry her.
“She’s a tempest of feeling,” the Food Network star and pastry chef wrote of his beloved on April 2. “I didn’t plan this out.”
So he proposed, forgoing a diamond ring for a piece of string. She accepted.
“I’m sorry I didn’t have a real ring,” he wrote. “I hope you don’t mind butcher’s twine, I am a chef, after all.”
