‘We’ve loved each other for many years…’

Update 8:04am CT, March 13: The viral couple is officially engaged.

It’s been a rollercoaster romance for Queer Eye contestant Tom and his ex-wife Abby, but the pair seem to have worked things out.

In the season premiere of Netflix’s reboot of the popular reality show, retired bachelor Tom was hoping a makeover would help catch Abby’s eye after the couple had spent a few years apart. And with the help of the Fab 5, it seemed like he might have been on the right path. Abby came over to see his redecorated apartment, complimented his new appearance, and agreed to go out to dinner with him the next Saturday. It was a feel-good ending, to say the least.

But last week, Tom revealed on Twitter that things sadly hadn’t worked out. While he’d “always love her more than anything,” the pair had apparently decided not to rekindle the romantic part of their relationship. Fans on Twitter shared their condolences, but also reassured Tom that he’d find someone great—and it turns out he has: Abby.

In a tweet Tuesday night, Tom shared a pic of the two in what appears to be an AMC movie theater lobby. The caption read,”So happy to say that Abby and I are reunited. We’ve loved each other for many years and want to spend the rest of our lives together!!!!!!”

It looks like his tweets might have won her over.

Wonder what movie they saw.
