While the pair have tried to keep their romance on the DL due to threats against Lynn, the convict is now ready to share his joy with the world.
In an interview from prison, the controversial guy gushed:
"She's going to be my future wife, we'll be laughing forever."
Well, we're not sure what there is to laugh about considering S.A. was sentenced to life without parole for killing 25-year-old photographer Teresa Halbach in 2005…
As for Lynn, she's equally as thrilled about the engagement:
"I am very happy to announce that Steven Avery asked me to marry him today, and I accepted. It has been a difficult road getting to this point in our lives but we are very happy. Despite all obstacles, and Steven's wrongful conviction and incarceration, we plan to be married shortly after he is released."
Wow, the paralegal sure sounds hopeful! We guess Brendan Dassey's overturned conviction has given her a newfound sense of optimism!
Obviously, the romantic news has caused a bit of a stir with fans. In fact, the backlash got SO bad that Steven's friend Curtis Busse had to shut down some haters via Facebook.

Well, to each their own we guess!
