Married at First Sight’s Lindsey Georgoulis is engaged!

Since divorcing ex-husband Mark Maher — whom she married on season 14 of the Lifetime series in 2022 — the reality star has moved from Boston to the Bay Area, where she found the perfect partner to say “I do” to.

“After MAFS, I knew there was something better in store for me,” the Married at First Sight alum tells PEOPLE exclusively. “I took a leap of faith and a little hope and it landed me the man of my dreams.”

Her fiancé, Ray, popped the question during a trip to Cancún, Mexico, and the couple plans to wed in the summer of 2025.

“Ray surprised me during a photo shoot on the beach before [we] headed to dinner and a show,” she reveals.

The Married at First Sight star, who has been dating her now-fiancé for over a year and a half, could not be more excited.

In her own words, Lindsey is “currently thriving and living my best life and would tell anyone everything they ever wanted is possible.”

“It all starts in believing you can have it,” she says, adding that she and Ray’s lives “are filled with laughter, adventure, and we can’t wait to share the next chapter together.”
