We can finally tell you that Love Is Blind alum Shaina Hurley is ready to take the next step in her relationship with her new man Christos Lardakis.
Shaina took to Instagram on 13 March 2022 to share a couple of photos from her trip to Mykonos with Christos. The Instagram unveil had come after she announced being in a new relationship and “it’s pretty serious” on the Viall Files podcast.
Now, let us tell you who Chris Lardakis is!
Meet Chris Lardakis, Shaina Hurley’s Boyfriend/Fiance
Following the series of photos that Shaina showed off on her Instagram @shaina.hurley, PEOPLE exclusively reveal that she is engaged to her boyfriend Chris Lardakis. The media outlet confirmed that the hunk of a man proposed Shaina on the 10th of March 2022. Also that they have plans to tie the knot over the summer in Greece.
Chris’s name is Christos Lardakis. However, like everyone, we shall call him Chris here. To Shaina, on the other hand, he is “My ride or die forever ♾ ❤️🔥 ✞”.
The duo is said to have first met, a couple of months after filming wrapped for Love Is Blind.
We first met Shaina as a contestant on the second season of Love Is Blind. While in the pods, she had connected with Kyle Abrams and Shayne Jansen. After accepting an engagement from Kyle, she had confessed her feelings for Shayne. With Kyle, she had said their religious differences were not serving them so well as a couple. Shaina had eventually called off the engagement and left the show.
During the season 2 reunion, later, Shaina apologized to Kyle for dragging out their relationship, to have led on more than it should have been. “Honestly, looking back on it, I should have said no right away to you. 100 percent. I do take full ownership. I could have avoided a whole bunch of drama and mess, 100 percent. And I’m owning that.”
Anyway, all is now in the past for Shaina with no regret of her decision to break it off with Kyle.
Kyle, in another place, also has sparked some major romance rumors of his own with Love Is Blind co-star Deepti Vempati. During the reunion episode, he admitted that he wished he had proposed to Deepti instead of Shaina.
Shain, if you already don’t know, is a freelance hairstylist practicing the profession at Salon Duo, as per LinkedIn.
