Matt raised the expectations of his fans in 2013 when he wrote on social media that he would be getting married in October of 2014. During an interview in March 2016 when the pair were asked about a honeymoon destination and Matt described his ideas as “something relaxing” with a beach and even said, “The Maldives sounds nice”.
Is She His Wife or Girlfriend?
The couple looked cute together but ultimately it seems like it was not meant to be to be. Dana had demonstrated a meltdown during a reality show and shouted at Matt. The backlash on social media was intense and it would seem that the relationship could not survive that episode. Steffanina’s relationship with Alexa was serious and he had her as a girlfriend and then-fiancee but the relationship never evolved into marriage.
