"I don’t know how they’re gonna react. But I really hope they’re gonna be happy for me. I’m nervous,'' Tammy expressed of the jitters she was feeling prior to informing her family members about the October 2022 proposal.

The television personality decided to FaceTime her sister Amy, who happened to be with the gals' half-sister, Amanda, to spill the shocking news.

Tammy's siblings were left shocked, as Amy Slaton thought her younger sister was telling a joke "because she wants to marry a total stranger."

Little did her sisters know that there was another punch line to the situation: Tammy and Caleb's wedding would be just two weeks away.

"Two weeks away. Are you kidding me? Why rush anything?" Amanda questioned in a confessional interview.

Tammy didn't care what her family had to say, as she would later say "I do" in November 2022, despite her loved ones thinking it was too soon.
