The plus-size beauty first met her husband in 2016 after he followed her on Snapchat and made it his mission to take her on a date when he saw that she was visiting New York City.

She previously said: ‘Not until six months after him following me and my antics [on Snapchat] did he see that I was in New York for a few days and so he snapped me something funny and asked me to drinks.

‘I told him to add me on Facebook because let’s be real, I wanted to know what he looked like. He added me [and] my heart sunk. I thought he was so handsome.’ 

After more than a year of dating, the hunk proposed to his then-girlfriend in Central Park in December 2017. 

The couple tied the knot in a private ceremony in California two years later, and made sure to include Brian’s daughter in the nuptials.

Businesswoman Hunter first rose to fame when she became the largest model to appear in 2017’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue at size 16.
