Davis has said that she met Tennon three weeks after she prayed a special prayer for love to come into her life.

“I was the loneliest woman in the world, and someone said, ‘You should just pray for a husband,” Davis told Page Six. “I said I wanted a big black man from the South who looked like a football player, who already had children, who maybe had been married before Three and a half weeks later, I met my husband.”

Congratulations!
