Erik Valdez (ex-Trey, GH) popped the question to girlfriend Candice Lopez, and he couldn't be more thrilled that she said yes. "First off, I want to thank all of the fans who reached out to me on social media to congratulate Candice and I…we really appreciate it!" he tells Digest. "I've spent the past few years getting to know, growing with, and falling for the sweetest, most amazing human being I know. She's become the love of my life, my best buddy, and now, someone I couldn't be more excited to spend the rest of my life with!" Valdez is currently appearing in USA network's GRACELAND.
