Berstein confirmed about the news while speaking to Page Six in July 2015 and said that he was excited about his future with Lily. Page Six quoted the star explorer as saying:
I’m ecstatic that Lily said yes, and I’m even more excited about our future together.

The couple took their relationship a step further after a year of their engagement and were pronounced husband and wife in an intimate wedding ceremony back on 4 September 2011.
However, all was not well between the husband-wife duo, and despite appearing happy and gay in the outside, cracks were appearing in their married life.
And to shock and dismay of all the fans, they fired off their relationship and divorced after a couple of years of marriage in 2013 without revealing any specific reason.
The specific reason for the split has not been addressed in the media, and as a rule, Josh has vowed to never talk about his personal life in the media.
After his divorce with Lily, the adventurer has again found love with his job and is again back to the nature doing what he knows the best.
