Joy herself says: “Honestly, I feel some jitters in my stomach. I finally found the connection I was looking for.” Dani also likes Joy a lot, as she gets to know him better. She says, “I want to find out more about him now.” But Joy wants children, preferably before he turns 30, so that has to change in the next four years.
