Love Is Blind’s Mark Cuevas is officially engaged, after popping the question to girlfriend Aubrey Rainey.
The star, who came to fame on the Netflix dating show earlier this year, announced the couple are expecting their first child together recently.
Speaking about his surprise proposal, he revealed he disguised the proposal – held at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Ohio – as a gender reveal party for their little one.
Not only did Mark, 26, set the proposal up himself, he also designed the three-carat diamond sparkler he presented the 25-year-old with.
‘Brilliant Earth is the company I used and I designed it myself! She was over the moon with the ring,’ he told People Magazine.
The lovebirds were joined by their closest family and friends for the sweet moment – with the bride-to-be left totally shocked.
‘Aubrey was very surprised because she thought we were going to the venue, but I blindfolded her so she wouldn’t know where we were actually going,’ Mark added, lifting the llid on the ‘month’s worth of planning’ he went through.
When asked on the exact moment he knew the 25-year-old was ‘the one’, he added: ‘It’s hard to say a specific date, but I’ve always known.’
Mark’s news comes after he revealed Aubrey was expecting their first child together in a sweet Instagram post.
Blessing fans with the first glimpse of the baby scan, he penned: ‘Our little pumpkin, Baby Cuevas April 2021.’
The Netflix star came to fame after appearing on dating show Love Is Blind, where he ended up getting engaged to Jessica Batten without ever even meeting her.
They had a rollercoaster relationship on the series, which was filmed in 2018, but things ended abruptly when she walked out on their wedding day, leaving him at the altar.
Soon after the show aired, Mark was linked to co-star Lauren ‘LC’ Chamblin – who claimed he started seeing someone else while they were still dating.
He said at the time: ‘I enjoyed spending time with LC for a few weeks, but at no point were we in an exclusive relationship, as LC confirmed herself.
‘I wish her the absolute best.’
Love Is Blind is available to stream on Netflix.
