“I don’t care how empty I see that cup, he has a way of making me see it half full,” she said. “He’s very positive and motivating and just kind of stepped into my life at a crucial time.”
Wilson moved in with her last month after having previously lived about two hours away. Now, they’re planning on getting married.
The two each have four kids, the youngest three of which live with the couple now, while Etheridge also has four grandchildren. They want their wedding to be an intimate ceremony with just their families.
“We just said we’re going to take a chance on love, and that’s what we did,” she said.
