The couple announced their engagement back in February, a little less than a year after Dunbar made his first appearance on the Trading Spaces star’s Instagram. But who is Gorder’s new partner in marital bliss? Read on for details about the gushing groom turned new husband, Christian Dunbar.

1. He’s also a designer

Gorder and her new husband share a keen eye and passion for aesthetic. Dunbar designs and builds sculptures and furniture. In 2017, Vogue called his designs “pure modernism” with an emphasis on clean, structured lines. “All of my work is a blend of organic and industrial, but in a way that highlights the inherent beauty of the natural materials,” added Dunbar.

2. He first met Genevieve in 2008 (kind of)

Dunbar still recalls the first time he saw his new wife back in 2008. He remembers seeing the star, who he then identified as “ol Trading Spaces gal, that I had seen and thought was pretty cute,” at a New York City diner. But the sparks didn’t have a chance to fly at first sight for these two. “She had a newborn and a family — so our interaction was absolutely zero,” he told Yahoo! Lifestyle back in July

3. He’s a stepfather!

The new marriage makes Dunbar a stepfather to Gorder’s ten-year-old daughter Bebelle. Dunbar seems more than prepared to embrace his new role as Bebelle’s stepfather, with Gorder frequently sharing photos of the new family together on social media. Gorder shares Bebelle with former husband Harcortt.

4. He and Genevieve were set up by mutual friends

"My friend said he felt like he knew this perfect person who'd had a crush on me for years," Gorder told Good Housekeeping in April. The couple hit it off, dating for less than a year before getting engaged while on a trip to Provence, France in February.

5. He’s a model

Looks like Gorder wed herself a model! Dunbar has a profile on the Maxium Talent site, and seems to have once appeared in a series of campaigns.

6. He has a psych degree

According to his professional bio on the website for his Savannah, Georgia-based design company, Dunbar earned an undergraduate degree in psychology from Florida State University back in 1993. The designer later went on to earn degrees in interior design and furniture design from the New York School of Interior Design and Savannah College of Art and Design, respectively.

Dunbar is not shy about his feelings for his new bride! He’s vocal about their relationship on social media, calling himself “the luckiest guy in the world” in an anniversary Facebook post from April. Recently, Dunbar shared a photo of his bride on Instagram with the effusive caption: “HER. Literally the most beautiful woman I’ve ever known. Without a doubt, life is better than I deserve.”
