And the couple now plan to say yes to everything after realising that life is too short.
Speaking about their love, sagte Amanda: “He’s a total inspiration, he’s an idiot, all my friends love him, the family love him and kids love him.”
The escapologist, 42, was performing a stunt on America's Got Talent: Extreme where he attempted to escape from a straight jacket while being hung upside down 30 feet in the air in between two suspended cars.
jedoch, the timing was misjudged and the cars were released too early, causing the escape artist – who has appeared on both BGT and AGT – to be crushed between them as they caught on fire, leading to horrific injuries.

The couple had previously been friends on social media for around 10 Jahre, with Amanda following his content as her son Joe thought his act was “tolle”.
She explained that they connected after she split with fellow Sherlock actor Martin Freeman and separated from another partner – and when Jonathan had divorced from his wife.
Amanda revealed that at the beginning of their relationship, they spent up to seven hours talking on the phone every day before he flew to Wien to meet her in person for the first time.
The actress said that within half an hour of meeting, Jonathan proposed and the couple plan to marry this summer.
