Remember Kenny Barnes from Love Is Blind?

In arguably the most shocking moment from the Netflix reality dating show, Kenny was left at the altar by Kelly Chase – and hearts everywhere broke.

Though we're still not over Kelly pulling one over on our man Kenny, we're happy to report that the Love Is Blind alum has found love. Better yet, he's just gotten engaged to girlfriend Alexandra Garrison!

Kenny revealed the news to People, sharing when he knew Alexandra was the one.

"There are definitely moments in the early stages of our relationship where the thought crossed my mind, but the moment that sticks out most is when she and I stayed up looking at the stars during a summertime trip to Lake Gaston," he said. "We talked for at least six hours and ended up falling asleep on the couch upstairs. It was then that I knew we were on the same page and that we were meant to be."

Kenny met Alexandra shortly after filming Love Is Blind in 2018. His ex-fiancé Kelly Chase has since congratulated the couple on the happy news.

"OH MY GOSHH YAYYY!!" Kelly commented on the announcement shared by Kenny on Instagram.

"That's so exciting!!! I'm so excited for you two!! My mouth dropped but in the best way!!!!! You deserve all the happiness Kenny!!!! Sending you both love and light! Hope to meet her someday!"     

Congratulations to the happy couple!
