Noah Galloway stunned ‘DWTS’ fans with the sudden announcement that he and fiancee Jamie Boyd were no longer engaged. Now has learned EXCLUSIVELY why he pulled the plug on their romance.

Noah Galloway, 33, melted our hearts with his romantic proposal to girlfriend Jamie Boyd on Season 20 of Dancing With The Stars.  But it turns out he wasn’t quite ready to tie the knot again and felt pressured to ask her to marry him! The Iraq war vet and double amputee shocked us all on Oct. 26 when he announced that the couple’s five month long engagement was off. Now has found out EXCLUSIVELY several reasons why he backed out of becoming Jamie’s husband.

“He has already been married twice and he’s only 33, he falls in love fast but can’t really keep it going,” our source tells EXCLUSIVELY. Not only is Noah twice divorced, he’s father to three children, sons Colston and Jack, and daughter Rian Elizabeth. “Noah rushes into the honeymoon phase of relationships and he didn’t really get to know her as much as he thought he did,” our source added.

“On the show you are in a bubble and people from all over are telling you to get married, how amazing you are together and there was a lot of pressure to do it for the show,” our insider continued. But unfortunately without the fanfare of being on TV, real life wasn’t as blissful. “The last few months has shown both of them that they rushed into things, and now that the TV cameras aren’t around, the real reality set in and they had to call it off before it was to late.”

The former DWTS contestant announced on Oct. 26 that the couple had decided to officially call off their engagement only five months after Noah’s romantic on-air proposal. “After long and careful consideration we’ve decided to end our engagement,” Noah captioned an Instagram photo of him and Jamie on the beach. “We love each other deeply and we’re confident we will remain friends. While we wanted to share this you, we appreciate the respect of our privacy at this time.” Jamie simultaneously posted a red carpet photo of the pair with a message of similar sentiment.
