Fans of the hit reality series Love Is Blind are likely familiar with Season 2 participant Shaina Hurley.

Shaina appeared on the popular Netflix dating show in hopes of finding a husband, and ended up getting engaged to fellow contestant Kyle Abrams. But while they initially seemed to have a connection in the pods, things went south after they met in person. One thing Shaina took issue with was Kyle's being an atheist, as she is a devoted Christian. The two broke up during their season.

After filming ended, Shaina went on to date Christos Lardakis. He even appeared alongside Shaina as her fiancé in Love Is Blind: After the Altar. The two tied the knot in July 2022, and have since gone on to expand their family.

Who is Shaina’s husband, Christos Lardakis?

Christos is the owner of Kanela Breakfast Club, a Greek-inspired restaurant with locations in the Chicago metropolitan area. In addition to serving as a restaurateur, Chris is a general contractor. He owns and operates CL Development, which provides construction services for commercial and residential properties.

Shaina Hurley had actually met her now-husband Christos Lardakis before she went on 'Love Is Blind.'

Shaina and Christos's first shot at love actually happened before Shaina left to film Love Is Blind.

The two had met through a mutual friend, but — as Christos previously told Distractify in a joint interview with Shaina — he'd had "a lot on [his] plate" at the time, and wasn't ready for a relationship. He was dealing with business and family issues.

They split for a time — leaving Shaina to join Love Is Blind and providing Christos with more time to focus on his personal life.

But after Shaina was done filming, they eventually reconnected when they both ended up at a mutual pal's wedding in Greece. And the rest, as they say, is history.

"We both aligned on the same idea — hers is 'faith first,' mine is, too," Christos told us. "That initially connected us, and, after that, I couldn't stop looking at her."

Shaina Hurley welcomed a baby with husband Christos Lardakis in February 2024.

Christos had already become a father when his ex welcomed their daughter Axelle in 2020. The doting dad often shares images of his “mermaid princess” online.

And in September 2023, Christos and Shaina announced that they were expecting a baby together.

“We are proud to announce Baby Lardakis coming soon,” Shaina wrote, alongside a photo of the couple holding an ultrasound image. The news came weeks after the couple celebrated their one-year anniversary.

Shaina went on to welcome their baby, a son named Yiorgos, on Feb. 1, 2024.

The couple told People: "We are so in love! It has been such an amazing experience becoming parents together. We're so at peace and we're just soaking up every second. So thankful, God is so good. He's our miracle baby, I'll be sharing more why soon."
