Prowant previously dated her Floribama Shore costar Gus Smyrnios, but the two split. She then went public with her new boyfriend, also named Gus, on Instagram in November 2019.

"No ones ever gunna love you more than, God, your mama, and me ❤️," she wrote alongside a photo of the pair in Thomson, Georgia, at the time.

Sure enough, in December, the couple announced expecting their first child, due in May 2021. Just days before their engagement, Prowant had shared footage from their gender reveal, where the couple found out they were having a baby boy.

"Our biggest blessing of 2020 💫 Gray Allen Gazda 💫," Prowant wrote. "This year has been full of so many ups and downs (more downs than ups unfortunately) but this year has taught me bad times are inevitable, but they make you appreciate the good. So long 2020 🤍 2021 I’m optimistic, so let’s do this!"

Prowant also recently warded off critics who were "bump shaming" her for her growing baby bump. "You see a 'belly that’s toOoOo big for 19 weeks' we see a 1st round draft pick 😌😙," she wrote. "Stop bump shaming, I’m growing a big boy."
