Relationship with HGTV star John Giddings explored
John and Damian met online. The pair got engaged after just three months of dating.
The lovebirds tied the knot in 2013, but their marriage was short-lived, as they called it quits just three years later. Speaking to Metro Weekly about the divorce, the 44-year-old designer said the marriage was an “interesting experience.”
He also revealed that the split was amicable and there were no hard feelings. Explaining why his marriage was short-lived, the Curb Appeal Xtreme cast member said, he’d gotten “swept up in the enthusiasm for marriage once it became legalized and hadn’t really thought it through.”
Is the ‘Curb Appeal Xtreme’ host single now?
From his social media accounts, it looks like John is single at the moment. His Instagram features his work, friends and family, but nothing indicates that he might be romantically involved with someone.
However, it is important to note that John has been very private about his dating life ever since his divorce. He could very well be keeping a new relationship under wraps for now.
