“I’ve always, obviously, been kind of coy with relationships having done the show and had that exposure and it just being a big deal kind of blowing up in my face, so I’ve been pretty coy about it,” Dorfman exclusively told Us Weekly in February 2022, two months after she revealed Hart’s identity. “I just met someone that I wanted everyone to know about. It sounds cliché, but [I wanted to]Shout from the rooftops. I was like, ‘I want everyone to know how happy I am in love and I think the response is great because I didn’t know what the response would be.’ Obviously, I haven’t openly talked about relationships and everyone’s been like, ‘Oh, I love seeing you so happy,’ and so I think that’s definitely made me kind of want to even go deeper and share more of it because I realize people are actually happy for me to find love.”

So we drove home to pack a backpack and when I opened my door to our home, both our families and my closest friends were waiting to surprise me. That’s when I really started bawling. My niece and nephew were there, and they ran up to us. It was so cute. And turns out, Blaine had been planning with our families and my friends for a month to get it all organized and I had absolutely no clue!”
