Amanda Garcia is engaged!

On Monday, the Challenge and Are You the One? star announced on social media that she is engaged to her boyfriend, Ray. Garcia, 27, is pregnant with the couple’s first child.

In Instagram photos announcing the happy news, Garcia, dressed in a cheetah dress that accentuated her growing baby bump, showed off her diamond ring as she stood beside Ray, who opted for a white button-down shirt and red pants. The pair posed together as they stood beside building blocks that spelt out “Baby XOXO.”

“I said yassss!” Garcia captioned the sweet photos, adding a ring emoji. The photos also included the moment Ray got down on one knee to pop the question.

Several alumni of The Challenge commented on Garcia’s Instagram post to congratulate the couple. Ashley Mitchell, who competed on War of the Worlds with Garcia in early 2019, posted several heart-eyed emojis.

Six-time competitor Cory Wharton commented a clapping-hands emoji on Garcia’s post, while Nany González, who also competed on War of the Worlds, wrote, “Congrats,” with a heart emoji.

Garcia also announced the news on Twitter. “I’m engaged bitch,” she wrote with a ring emoji.

In September, Garcia announced that she and Ray are expecting their first child together. She shared several Instagram photos of her and Ray holding an ultrasound pic, writing, “Arriving soon. February 2020.”

Garcia was originally a contestant on season 3 of Are You The One? in 2015. She has since competed on five seasons of The Challenge: Rivals III, Invasion of the Champions, XXX: Dirty 30, Final Reckoning, and War of the Worlds.
