The TV star popped the question to Novack in August 2011 while they were on vacation in Orlando, Florida. However, as fate would have it, their marital bliss took an unexpected twist. In December 2015, it was reported that the couple had separated and had their marriage annulled the previous year.
Novack’s ex said their breakup happened too soon, but he recognized that their decision to part ways ultimately became the best choice for both of them.
