To his surprise, LaDonna’s reaction was something straight out of a fiction romance novel. D.L. said during his appearance at Angela Yee’s podcast, Lip Service, “Finally, one day, I tell my wife. You know what she said to me? ‘I wish you would’ve told me and we could’ve went through this together.”

She is one heck of a doting wife, isn’t it?!
