Their big day is finally here! YouTubers Tana Mongeau and Jake Paul are set to walk down the aisle and say “I do,” during their wedding ceremony on Sunday, July 28 — less than one month after they got engaged. But even though the couple has only been together for less than three months, it seems like their love is as strong as ever. In a sweet video tribute to her fiancé titled “I love you, Jake Paul,” Tana gushed about her husband to be.
“The other day in an airport, a girl came up to me and asked me why I love you, Jake. People actually ask me that a lot and I’m sure people ask you that about me too, but I guess that’s beside the point here. I realized in that moment that the only person I never want to question why I love you is you. Because I love you,” Tana, 21, said in her video. “Like on some I listen to love songs and smile now s–t, on some I fall asleep smiling, Notebook s–t. I love you and it actually still scares me so much to say it because once I say it and it’s somewhere other than my head. It becomes completely real and to be quite frank, I am so used to losing everything I love and I don’t want to lose you.”
She went on to reference a lyric in Russ’ “I Wanna Go Down With You,” that goes: “I wanna slow dance while they’re screaming.” Tana explained that the lyric meant to her that it would always be her and Jake against the world. She said all her life she’s felt that she’s never been understood and that Jake is the only person she’s ever met that’s ever fully understood her.
“It isn’t just I love you. It’s thank you. I’m thankful for everything bad that’s ever happened to me because it’s led me straight to you,” Tana continued. “ Thank you for going through every single thing I’ve gone through but 10 times worse so that you know exactly what to say to make it all okay. Thank you for lighting a fire in me that no one else could light a match to. Thank you for waking up the kid in me and making it all fun again. Thank you for working so hard that I wake up every single morning thinking, ‘If Jake can do that, so can I.’ Thank you for freeing the creative juices in my head like a f–king river. Thank you for loving me even when it might be so hard to. Thank you for never ever ever ever ever giving up on me or losing patience and for always pushing me to be the best version of myself because that is the truest form of love you could give me.”
She ended her nearly 8-minute-long video with one last thank you to her future husband. “Thank you for slow dancing with me while they scream. I love you,” she said.
