Danielle hasn’t spoken about how and when she met Joe, however, according to them, they dated for two years before they became engaged – it’s known that Joe proposed to her in 2015, and they married in 2016; Danielle took his last name, saying that it would be crazy not to do that since as a weather girl with the surname ‘Breezy’ (pleasantly windy), this took everything to a higher level.
