Likewise, on the episode of the Hemophilia podcast, 'Getting Engaged, Soft Stud Pen Pals, and Boring in the Best Possible Way,' she broke the news about her engagement, telling host Dave Holmes and Matt McConkey that she was in Tokyo, as one goes to Tokyo for Thanksgiving.

Mayo and Lena had decided to go together as it was their first Thanksgiving together. Before, Mayo used to go home to Cleveland, stay there and freeload off of people. But in 2017, Mayo thought of spending time together with Lena and Lena was like 'Of Course.'

Lena then added that it was her first time with Mayo visiting Tokyo so she thought that it would be good to go there with one of their friends who had been to Tokyo many times. So they decided to do that, and their trip was phenomenal.

Likewise, Lena was also asked by the host about how Mayo proposed her. Lena then started by saying that it was a super chill thing. She further added even though she is over the top, her lovely lady is like the opposite.

It's no surprise that Lena is already envisioning their dream wedding!

Lena shared her plans for the wedding with Mayo, adding she just can't wait to get married. The couple met at an agency meeting, and it's been love ever since then!

She thinks that her marriage will be a pretty fly. She also stated that Mayo is like a black Audrey Hepburn and said that she is an old school classic and have a bit more of a swagger style, so they complement each other really well.
