Got Engaged With Co-Star Becca Kufrin; Garrett Yrigoyen's Story With His Beloved Fiance

The couple met on the show and hit it right off. When it comes to relationships, Yrigoyen has given his best this time around after his one failure in marriage.
“We started a foundation of being honest and open and transparent. Anything that’s come about, or just dealing with anything, that’s how we address it — head-on. It makes our relationship so much stronger, and we continue to grow together.”
The star was immersed in a social media storm just after some days of the premiere of the show.
Yrigoyen liked several Instagram posts which were referred to as 'Hurtful and Offensive Memes' for the people following him on social media. He soon released a statement on his social media mentioning,
“I never realized the power behind a mindless double tap on Instagram and how it bears so much weight on people’s lives. I did not mean any harm by any of it. My Instagram ‘likes’ were not a true reflection of me and my morals.”
Kufrin was quick to defend her newly engaged fiance saying,
“People have been saying really terrible things about [Garrett], but that’s not who he is,”
Well, the couple got all messed up with the accusation he had but is cleared out as for now. They have been having quite a time in their lives spending time with each other and knowing each other like never before.
