It's over for Vicki Gunvalson and her fiancé Steve Lodge.

The former Real Housewives of Orange County star and Lodge have ended their engagement after two years, a source confirms to PEOPLE.

Gunvalson later confirmed the split on Instagram Wednesday, writing, "The time has come for Steve and I to move forward or move on and we are …. moving on."

"There is no fault with either person, we are just going in different directions. I wish him the best life has to offer and to be happy, and he has wished the same for me," she added.

Gunvalson also appears to have deleted all of her Instagram photos with Lodge, including their engagement announcement. They have also unfollowed each other.

The Bravo star, 59, last publicly supported Lodge during his failed run for Governor of California this summer.

E! News first reported the split.

At the time, Gunvalson told PEOPLE she felt like she had finally found the love of her life in Lodge.

"I love him so much," she said. "We live together now. Our families are good and we're good, we're taking everything slow in regards to the engagement and marriage because we'd never want to be divorced again. We've both got some divorces under our belt and we don't have to rush. We want to be on our time. I want to be his wife, he knows that, and he wants to be my husband. So we'll see what happens!"

The two got engaged in April 2019 after three years together. The following April, they decided to postpone their wedding due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Gunvalson was previously married to Michael J. Wolfsmith from 1982-1991 and to Donn Gunvalson from 1994-2014.
