What Happened to Natalie and Shayne After 'Love Is Blind'? (2022)

The second season of Love Is Blind has featured so many shocking moments, and the wedding episode only upped the ante. (And so did that bonkers reunion.)

But one of the biggest questions viewers want answered is, what happened to Natalie Lee and Shayne Jansen after what happened at the altar? Here's everything we know about the couple.

What happened in the Love Is Blind finale?

Before their wedding, Shayne and Natalie seemed like one of the strongest couples. Their quirky senses of humor seemed to mesh, and even their families appeared to like the partnership. Unfortunately, Shayne and Natalie had a huge fight the night before their wedding. The fight apparently transpired when Natalie asked her husband-to-be if he'd maybe had too much to drink. In the heat of the moment, Shayne told Natalie he hated her and that she was the worst thing that ever happened to him. Ouch.

At the altar, Natalie told Shayne she couldn't marry him, saying, “I think we’ve grown a lot as two people who have fallen in love. I know I’ve grown a lot because of you. But I don’t. I’m so sorry. I still love you and you’re still my best friend but, like, we have really big issues to sort through.”

Afterwards, outside the venue Natalie indicated that she didn't want to break up. ​​“We can still try to work on this,” she told him. “I'm not closing the door on us.” However, Shayne seemed pretty heartbroken about Natalie's decision to say no, and told cameras that he didn't think there was a way back from this. While Natalie wanted to work on their problems, Shayne was too distraught to know what to do next.

What happened at the Love Is Blind reunion?

During the Love Is Blind season 2 reunion, Shayne and Natalie made some pretty big revelations about their relationship. The pair revealed that, at the time of filming, they weren't together, but that they'd tried to make their relationship work after their onscreen wedding went awry. Both Natalie and Shayne got visibly emotional when talking about their romance, with Natalie admitting that she'd found it hard to let go of the fight they'd had the night before the wedding.

As for Shayne's connection with Shaina, it was confirmed that although they'd hung out since the show ended, they were purely on platonic terms. Shayne didn't even want to speak about Shaina during the reunion, hinting that he didn't want to taint any future chance he might have with Natalie. Clearly, there's still a lot of love between Natalie and Shayne, even if they're not together right now.

Are Shayne and Natalie still together?

Judging by Shayne and Natalie's Instagram accounts, they're still on speaking terms. They follow each other, and fans have noticed some low-key flirty interactions between them.

Perhaps giving us the most hope is a piece of investigative work carried out by one super-savvy Love Is Blind fan. Sadie Mae Fisher took to Twitter to share screenshots from Shayne and Natalie's Instagram Stories, which revealed the pair was in the same bar at the same time. Plus, Shayne's photo included an emoji of a couple holding hands, which definitely suggested they were on a date.

Another eagle-eyed fan found that Shayne and Natalie both appear to be living in Chicago right now, which could mean they're making their relationship work.

Natalie still lives in Chicago as of 4 weeks ago (where Shayne lives and works). My bets are they end up together and are still together now. They’re also now following each other again (I think they weren’t initially to avoid any spoilers) #LoveIsBlind pic.twitter.com/1sYHTS3Tna

On February 24, Natalie shared some sleek snaps with the caption, “being the sun that chicago needs right now.” Shayne replied with a pretty flirty emoji.

On February 16, Natalie captioned her photos and a hilarious Love Is Blind clip with, “he may have abs but I have ibs.” Could this be a reference to Shayne?

Meanwhile, when Shayne posted a clip from the couple's discussion about what to serve at the wedding, Natalie commented, writing, “I’m always down for an old fashioned fountain.”

And when Shayne shared some special moments from his Love Is Blind journey, Natalie made her feelings known. “To say I had a crazy week is an understatement! As I reflect back on the pods and my time in Mexico, I made some great connections and life long friends,” Shayne wrote on Instagram. “I want to make sure everyone knows that Natalie is [an] incredible woman with a huge heart and I hope everyone stays tune[d] to see how it all unfolds! I wouldn’t trade my time on this wild ride for anything. ❤️.” Natalie commented simply with a heart emoji, which speaks volumes.

Before the reunion aired, Shayne shared a tribute to Natalie on Instagram, writing, "Natalie Mina Lee. Where do I start? This journey with you will be something I’ll never forget. It was easily the best time of my life and I would do it all over again knowing I get to spend more time with you. From our first date eating in-n-out and you getting both milkshakes to our walks around grant park. You are the most beautiful soul and you really brought out the best in me as a man. As a man watching our story over again I’m remorseful for my actions and all I can do is learn from them to be a better man. I’m proud of being vulnerable and being as genuine as possible. I don’t know what’s next for us but I do know that I will never stop loving you."

Shayne also addressed those persistent Shaina rumors, saying, "To put some other rumors to rest, Shaina and I are cordial and have hung out in group gatherings with the cast (with Natalie), but we have never had nor will ever have a romantic relationship. I wish her all the best."

Natalie also posted a tribute to Shayne, writing, "And to @shaynejansen - I couldn’t have asked for a better partner in this. We may have had our ups and downs, but you have always protected me and had my back. And thank you for loving me for ME, and always encouraging me to embrace and love my flaws. When I told you I was self conscious about my deep stretch marks, you told me everyday after you loved them and they were beautiful. Even if I did this experiment a thousand times knowing the outcome, I would have always chosen you."

As it turns out, a lot of viewers fell in love with Shayne and Natalie as a couple, after initially being uncertain about the pairing.

Although, not EVERYONE was a fan of the partnership (and we're not even talking about Shaina).

Natalie! So proud of you for coming to your sense now let’s go find a man who doesn’t spend $2000 on food and believes in 401k and is secure in himself and isn’t mean to you🙏🏾 #LoveIsBlind #loveisblind2 https://t.co/Mj9y5AUFE9

If we really wanna get real, Natalie shouldn’t of said yes in the first place. The way he threw a tantrum at being called out when calling her the wrong NAME was the first strike

Natalie is everything. She should ditch Shayne and @ABCNetwork should make her the first Asian Bachelorette. #LoveIsBlindS2 pic.twitter.com/JWIYTZO6qW

Either way, we hope Shayne and Natalie are happy post-Love Is Blind, whether they decide to give their relationship another chance or not.
