It’s official! Deavan Clegg, who starred in the TLC show 90 Day Fiancé, revealed in an exclusive video interview that she is engaged to her longtime boyfriend Christopher “Topher” Park.
The former TLC star, tells In Touch on Tuesday, March 7 that she was proposed to in November. Around one month after the birth of our child, he popped the question. Well, yep, we're engaged as of this minute.
As Deavan describes, she and Chris got engaged during a birthday trip to Salt Lake City, Utah, that she had to put off so that she could be by her son Taeyang's side in the hospital throughout his cancer struggle.
In May of 2022, Deavan stated that she and her ex-husband Jihoon Lee's 3-year-old son had been diagnosed with b-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia. The Utah native claims she “hyped” herself up throughout the vacation after learning Chris was about to propose.
“Then the next day he was running late to pick me up because he had to get a haircut,” she continues as she recounts the “rough” proposal. “Then he called me up and said he had a flat tyre, and I was like, ‘Well he's lying.
I feel like he's simply trying to buy time so he can get flowers. It ended up that his tyre was indeed flat. Chris got a call later that night saying “something horrible happened and he had to go to work” after he had finally returned to their hotel room.
She says she was “sad” because she knew he wouldn't propose after he was stalled at work for hours and didn't get home until 3 a.m. One morning as she was helping Chris pack up their hotel room, she turned around to find him on one knee.
‘After everything that happened, my brain just didn't register that he was still conducting the proposal,' the former 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way star explains. “And then I forced him to take a seat on the sofa, and he asked, ‘So is that a yes or a no?'”
In response, I said, “Oh absolutely, YES.” After that, I put the ring on my finger without asking, and he said, “I'm meant to put it on you.” And I was all “Let me do it, even if my fingers are all puffy from the baby.
In spite of the fact that “nothing went as planned at all,” she thinks the proposal is “ideal” for “their tale.” Something crazy is occurring all the time,” says Deavan. Given the chaos of our daily lives, everyone joked that it was the ideal proposal scenario for us.
When the pair were initially seen wearing rings on their left ring fingers, engagement rumors began to circulate, but Deavan dispelled them by explaining their true intent. We had like a pair of rings and the only reason we wore that couple ring is a cause, it's a weird story, but he wanted to bring me as a plus one to his buddy's wedding, but his friend said, no girlfriends just fiancés and spouses,” Deavan explains.
That's why I never took off my wedding ring: “We wore them so I could get married. Deavan and Chris said they were expecting their first child together in May of 2022 before taking their relationship to the next level.
“We are thrilled to announce baby Park will be arriving Fall 2022 [baby emoji],” the now-mother-of-three captioned the reveal. The hashtags “#baby #babyannouncement #rainbowbaby #90dayfiancetheotherway #90dayfiance” capped off her pregnancy announcement. Deavan is the mother of three children: son Taeyang, daughter Baby Park, and daughter Drascilla from a prior relationship.
And in that same month, Deavan revealed that she and her now ex-husband Jihoon had finally divorced. In April 2019, they brought Taeyang home. Deavan left South Korea, Jihoon's home country, in the spring of 2020 and returned to the United States. In September 2020, Deavan divorced Jihoon. Taeyang's physical and legal custody was awarded to Deavan as part of the divorce settlement.
