“Queer Eye” star Antoni Porowski and his fiancé, Kevin Harrington, have broken up.
On November 22, a rep for Porowski told People that the couple had decided to call off their engagement.
“After many conversations and considerations during the wedding planning process, Antoni and Kevin have amicably decided to separate,” the spokesperson said in a statement. “While they still had a lot of respect for each other, as they talked more about the future, they realized they were on different paths.”
“They are both staying focused on their work and surrounding themselves with friends during this time,” the rep added.
Porowski and Harrington announced their engagement in November 2022 after three years of dating.
The famous food and drink expert shared the news with a grainy photo of the couple on Instagram. “I really hope the wedding photos are less blurry,” Porowski joked, adding a praying hands emoji.
Harrington also shared the news on Instagram alongside a carousel of photos of the couple, including a final image showing them dressed as zombies.
“Officially together until we look like the last photo,” he wrote, adding the hashtag #engaged.
In May 2022, Porowski opened up to People about how the COVID-19 pandemic helped accelerate his romance with Harrington.
When the pandemic began in March 2020, Porowski was in Austin, Texas, filming “Queer Eye.” Harrington was visiting him from New York. The trip, which was supposed to last just four days, was extended as New York City went into lockdown.
“There was a shutdown in New York — there was no toilet paper — and we decided to stay in Austin and raise a dog,” Porowski said. “We went from living in our own apartment and without a dog to living in one place with a dog.”
The couple and their dog, Neon, whom they later adopted, began living as a family, which took their relationship into new territory.
“It escalated quickly. But I don’t have any complaints, which is pretty nice,” Porowski said. “When something is stable and really good — and you’re communicating a lot and checking in with each other and your own therapist about it — I feel like that’s kind of the key.”
