Jay Glazer has finally found true love. The 53-year-old reporter, who is best known as the NFL Insider for FOX Sports’ award-winning NFL pregame show, FOX NFL Sunday, popped the question to ex-model and clothing designer Rosie Tenison last week in Santa Monica, CA, with a dazzling emerald-cut diamond accented by two rows of round diamonds on a shared-prong band.
The center stone is secured with white-metal claw-style prongs (likely platinum), and the round accent diamonds appear to completely encircle the band.
Having battled depression for years, Glazer explained in a candid engagement message on Instagram how Tenison was able to rescue him from the “gray” and deliver him to the “blue.”
On Sunday, he posted three photos to his Instagram page and wrote, “Sooooo this happened! It only took me 53 years to find true love. For everyone out there… it’s never too late… Because of my gray, I’ve felt unlovable for 53 years! As a result, I’ve sabotaged and pushed others away – that’s what the gray gets you to do.”
He continued, “But it takes a special spirit to stand there with me, help me grow, and feel worthy of feeling loved. That’s who this woman is!! This amazing, incredible soul Rosie Tenison saw my pain but more so saw my heart and said ‘This man takes care of so many people but who takes care of him? I want to be the one to take care of him!'”
Glazer had previously broken up with Tenison, 54, even though he cared for her dearly and called her “the love of his life.” But the journalist needed to embark on a mental health journey before being able to accept her love. He documented his challenges and triumphs in a book titled Unbreakable: How I Turned My Depression and Anxiety into Motivation and You Can Too.
“I wouldn’t have been able to receive this love had I not gone on this mental health journey with all of you,” Glazer wrote on Instagram. “Took me 53 years to do the work on myself to see I am worth it, I can beat the gray… I can live in the blue. Thank you Rosie for what’s going to be a lifetime of blue and love.”
Tenison, who has an identical twin sister (also a former model), is now a clothing designer and operates a Los Angeles boutique called Varga.
When he’s not breaking news stories for FOX Sports, Glazer can be found in his Unbreakable Performance Center gym in West Hollywood, where he trains NFL players and military veterans in mixed martial arts.
Glazer’s post spawned comments from sports and Hollywood celebs, including tight end Rob Gronkowski, actor Sylvester Stallone, fellow broadcaster Bonnie Bernstein and Dwyane “The Rock” Johnson.
