Before her relationship with Arencibia, Lahren was engaged to Brandon Fricke, a former congressional candidate for California’s 33rd district.

The pair announced their engagement in June 2019 but less than a year later, the Daily Mail reported in April 2020 they had gone their separate ways in February of that year.
