In the frame, Lizzie ensured her diamond sparkler was front and centre, as she tenderly wrapped her arm around her fiancé.
Lizzie’s post was quickly flooded with comments from her fellow MAFS stars, with Liam Cooper writing: ‘Omg, congratulations to the both of you. Amazing news! Now let’s party xx’
Liam’s boyfriend Samuel Levi, who starred on MAFS New Zealand, also added: ‘LOVE THIS SOO DAMNN MUCH!!!! Congratulations beautiful xx;
MAFS bride Connie Crayden soon joined the chorus, adding: ‘Congratulations Beautiful. I’m so happy for you’, while Steve Burley wrote: ‘Congratulations. Such great news’.
‘Engaged to the love of my life. My everything. I’m so UNBELIEVABLY HAPPY,’ Lizzie wrote beside the image, before adding several celebratory emojis
Meanwhile, The Bachelorettes Elly Miles, Australian Survivor stars Tim Sattler and Rod Jones and Real Housewives of Melbourne star Jackie Gillies also shared their well-wishes.
Elizabeth, who has been dating Alexander since late last year, kept her beau’s identity secret for months – eventually revealing it at Easter this year.
‘As a whole, I’m incredibly private, I did reality TV a lifetime ago. I’m so protective over my partner and there are so many negative, gossiping people out there, that go out of their way to talk trash,’ she wrote on Instagram at the time.
‘I’m private’: Elizabeth, who has been dating Alexander since late last year, used her caption to explain the reason why she’d waited so long to reveal her boyfriend’s face on social media
‘I have never felt a love like this so hopefully people can see why I have been so protective.’
Hitting back at her critics, Elizabeth insisted she had no regrets about hiding Alexander’s face, and said she ‘doesn’t need to justify herself’.
‘I get it. We have been together for a quite a while but I was letting myself enjoy it. Without others knowing on a bigger platform,’ she added.
Elizabeth ‘married’ Seb Guilhaus on MAFS 2020 and they dated for a year before splitting.
Protective: Elizabeth had previously covered Alexander’s face with emojis on social media
The real Lizzie: ‘Yes I know some of you are probably excited to see my partner’s face. The thing is, a lot of you know me from reality TV, but it was TV, definitely some truths to it, 100 per cent there are some truths. But it is also entertainment,’ the reality star insisted
‘We have mutually decided to end our relationship as boyfriend and girlfriend,’ they announced in identical Instagram posts.
In November, Elizabeth sent fans into a frenzy in when she shared a black-and-white photo on Instagram of herself locking lips with a mystery man.
Daily Mail Australia later revealed the man in the photo was Alexander Vega, a 30-year-old field service engineer based in Sydney.
A source close to Elizabeth confirmed the news on December 1, saying: ‘They’ve been together for a few months but are keeping their relationship very low-key.’
‘Lizzie is the happiest and most confident she has been in a while, so it melts my heart seeing her so charmed,’ they added.
Skilled in computer repairs, Alex has more than a decade’s experience working in the information technology and services industry.
