Trading Spaces‘ Genevieve Gorder is prepping to trade some vows. And when the beloved TLC show returns to airwaves in April, her new fiancé will be making an appearance too.

Just a few days ago, Gorder announced her engagement to designer and builder Christian Dunbar, PEOPLE confirmed.

“It takes a pretty big love to interrupt a beautiful life…this one was undeniable,” said Gorder, 43. “So off we go to the dance again.”

But one of Dunbar’s Instagram posts gave viewers a clue that Genevieve’s soon-to-be-groom is set to make an appearance alongside his lady on the show’s upcoming return. “So truly humbled/honored to be able to play a tiny part in the return of the original series that started it all,” he wrote next to a photo of the famed Trading Spaces truck.

Though Gorder has certainly moved on to new projects of her own (she showed off the stunning transformation of her Manhattan townhouse, where she lives with her 10-year-old daughter, Bebelle, on the HGTV series Genevieve’s Renovation), she hasn’t forgotten the groundbreaking show that launched her to success.

“I know this was the favorite show of so many people in the country. I’ve built a life around this show,” she shared in an Instagram post shortly after the announcement of the show’s return. “I’m so grateful to all of your who watched this in the beginning, I hope you all come back.”
