Preparing Darcey Silva’s Engagement Ring and Proposal Was a Difficult Task
Darcey & Stacey star Darcey Silva and her boyfriend Georgi Rusev secretly got engaged in June 2020. Four months after the engagement, the couple announced the big news during an interview with People.
And by their accounts, preparing for the proposal and finding the right engagement ring was far from easy.
Darcey Silva's and Georgi Rusev's Relationship
Silva and her boyfriend Rusev's relationship hit it off after the couple started chatting online circa 2020. They met face-to-face for the first time in Miami during Super Bowl weekend in February 2020.
Their bond only strengthened after that. So much so, Rusev left his home in Washington, D.C. and moved to California to live with his partner during the pandemic.
Darcey Silva's Engagement Ring
Within months of living together, Rusev secretly proposed to his partner.
"It was really hard to find the ring," he told People in August 2020, confessing how planning a surprise proposal in close-quarters, amid the pandemic, was tricky.
The massage therapist also mentioned that making reservations for the boat, dinner, and making calls was hard.
Despite all hardships, he found a perfect square halo engagement ring with a band engraved with small diamonds to impress his future wife. And without flinching, the reality star accepted the proposal.
"It was definitely a total surprise for me," Silva shared to People. She even stated that she felt newly engaged since she hadn't been able to celebrate her engagement because of the pandemic.
Then, gushing about the engagement bliss, the 46-year-old remarked she had a deep connection with her future husband. She also touched down on their relationship issues, stating that every obstacle they faced had strengthened them.
The most important [thing] is we understand each other and we have each other's backs. We feel very secure with each other.
Silva pointed out that their biggest strength as a couple was their ability to communicate and talk about their issues.
She even mentioned that her fiancé had a close bond with her children from her previous marriage. "We already kind of feel like a little family unit," the mother-of-two added.
After singing praises of her partner and their connection, the 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days star shed light on her wedding plans.
As per her accounts, she wants an intimate, beautiful, and romantic beach wedding in the States first and then one abroad as well. She wants her family, her fiancé's family, and her loved ones to be part of their big day.
Darcey Silva's Ex-husband and Ex-boyfriends
While Silva has found solace in the arms of her now-partner, her love life has been through a fair share of trials and tribulations.
At first, she was married to Frank Bollok for eight years. Silva's ex husband is a former musician and a co-owner of The Twilight Lodge at Haines Falls.
She shares two daughters — Aniko and Aspen — with him. "We just felt we grew apart and were searching for our soulmates," she told Heavy in November 2020, implying that they divorced amicably.
Years after the divorce, Silva publicly dated Netherlands-based model Jesse Meester and British reality star Tom Brooks. Their relationship was well documented in the TLC's 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days.
