Jodie - who has 10-year-old son Indio with former partner Andrea Vianini - previously insisted her two previous marriages hadn't put her off the idea of tying the knot again in the future.
Asked if she'd like to marry Joseph, she previously said: "Who knows? We're very comfortable and happy and incredibly strong. Joe and Indie just adore each other.
"I haven't been put off marriage, but I should have been!
"My heart got trampled on a few times and I became more reserved and careful.
"But I'm still a hugger and I love to love."
And Jodie praised the former Royal Marine for bringing a "wonderful calm" to her "bonkers" life.
She added: "[It's going] really well - he's a fantastic rock.
"With his military background, he hasn't got any issues or ego.
"He brings a wonderful calm to my wonderfully bonkers life.
"We met years ago when I was raising money for a military charity and then I asked him to come to Dominica to help with the Hurricane Irma relief."
