Just seven months after Jonathan went public with his relationship with the psychologist, he popped the question to his lady love.
“I just love how happy she looks,” wrote Jonathan on April 14 on Instagram. “Oh, and we got engaged at the Grand Canyon yesterday! And now @dr.jessicagriffin is mine foreverrrr #shesmine #nervouswreck.”
Jonathan shared a photo of a happy and smiling Dr. Jessica sporting her sparkling engagement ring with his followers.
Jonathan, 30, and Dr. Jessica, 41, met during his season on Married at First Sight while he was married to his ex-wife Molly Duff. Dr. Jessica helped counsel the couple, but their marriage ended up in divorce.
Following his divorce, Jonathan and Dr. Jessica began a relationship and went public with it in September 2018. While the couple had some critics, they mostly received support from fans of the show. Jonathan also made it clear that they looked into ethics codes before they started dating, and assured his supporters that they weren’t breaking any ethic rules.
Just last week, PEOPLE reported that Dr. Jessica would be leaving MAFS following a few seasons on the show.
“Jessica and Jon are very happy together. She wants to focus on her family and their relationship,” a friend of the couple told the outlet on April 12. Jonathan also recently tweeted that his relationship with Dr. Jessica began eight months after his relationship with Molly ended.
Dr. Jessica also took to her Instagram page to share the news of her engagement.

I have always said, you can find love in extraordinary ways – you just have to follow your heart and be you, nobody other than you, and the right person will find you (if he’s persistent enough and eventually hunts you down and won’t take no for an answer 🤣.) For the first time in my history of knowing him, Jon was at a loss for words and a total adorable mess on his knee. So, of course, I said yes – just helping a guy out 😉 Today, we celebrated yesterday’s Grand Canyon engagement by a sick mountain bike trail ride in Sedona where I decided to faceplant via an endo (where you flip head over feet over your handle bars) and landed on face likely breaking nose, bike landing on top of me and jacked up both legs. Zoom in for the proof. Hey, in my defense, I was a little distracted by this incredible guy. 😍💕💗 I love you with everything I have. @jon_francetic #lovewins #engaged #shesaidyes
Jonathan and Dr. Jessica, who has three kids from a previous relationship, have yet to announce their wedding date.

My #mcm goes out to this guy @jon_francetic who cancelled his entire day today, dropping everything to go pick up my sick kid after the school called that he had gotten sick in his class. Of course, true to Murphy’s law in the parenting world, I had huge annual training for my trauma center(so I couldn’t get there in time) and he spent day sending me pictures and updates and reassuring me until I could get home to my little guy. I know you never planned on signing up for the glamorous life of Lysol and five year old tears — yet you always have my back and make my heart expand in ways I never thought possible. 💗(Throwback photo from my son’s special someone dance – Jon was his “special someone” – kid’s got good taste.) #mancrushmonday
Congrats to the happy couple!
