He told PEOPLE: ‘I set up with the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame to light up their building the color of the gender, disguising the proposal as a gender reveal.’
The TV star was previously engaged to fellow Love Is Blind contestant Jessica Batten, but she did not go through with the wedding.
Giving details about his engagement to Aubrey, 25, he said he proposed with an emerald cut 3-carat diamond on a halo setting.
He said: ‘Brilliant Earth is the company I used and I designed it myself! She was over the moon with the ring.’
But they were not alone during the proposal because their families were there, as well as Rainey’s best friend.
Saying that he’s ‘always known’ Aubrey was The One, he continued: ‘Aubrey was very surprised because she thought we were going to the venue, but I blindfolded her so she wouldn’t know where we were actually going.’

‘I love this stuff guys – Aubrey’s very impatient … actually we both are,’ he said. ‘We already know the gender but we decided to do this for everyone and share it with the world.’
The couple set off fireworks and confetti cannons that had blue effects, conforming that a boy is on the way.
Cuevas said he and Rainey are ‘super-excited,’ urging followers, ‘Stay tuned to hear the rest of our journey here for the next couple of months. Take care.’
