January 05, 2018Jan 05, 2018

On Friday morning, Lara Spencer's publicist confirmed that Spencer and her boyfriend, Rick McVey, are engaged! The couple had been dating for two years before McVey popped the question.

Lara Spencer is the creator, producer, and host of HGTV's "Flea Market Flip." Additionally, she is the co-host of "Good Morning America." Over two years ago, a mutual friend set the popular TV personality up on a blind date with McVey. 

Rick McVey is the CEO, founder, and chairman of a financial tech company called MarketAxess. The two instantly hit it off and began their relationship. Now, two years later, they are taking another big step in their relationship!

Both Spencer and McVey had been previously married. Spencer was married to former reporter David Haffenreffer. Together, they had two children. The two divorced amicably in 2015 and still have remained friends as they co-raise their teenagers. 

McVey has three children from his previous marriage as well, but all of them are now grown. 

Congrats to Spencer and McVey on their recent engagement! We wish them love and happiness! In other recent news, a model and actress who co-starred with Robert De Niro just passed away at 64.
