Looking like quite the catch. Longtime Catfish host Nev Schulman is getting married in one week, he revealed via social media on Thursday, July 13.

Schulman took to Twitter to share a photo from his tuxedo fitting on Thursday, as he was accompanied by his adorable daughter Cleo James. “Am I getting married next weekend? Yes!” the MTV host wrote. “Did I leave finding my outfit till the last minute? Of course! Is Cleo the cutest baby ever? Yup!”

In the pic, the TV personality wears a black-tie appropriate cream tuxedo jacket, black pants and a decorative bowtie. His daughter, meanwhile, grins while her dad takes a selfie. “Picking your wedding outfit can be tough,” Schulman added on Instagram. “Good thing I have the best little helper a groom could hope for.”

Picking your wedding outfit can be tough. Good thing I have the best little helper a groom could hope for. 😍

Schulman proposed to girlfriend Laura Perlongo last May with a one-of-kind Cartier engagement ring. “We’re enraged!!!” he joked on Instagram at the time.

The couple subsequently opened up to The Knot about the proposal and planning their upcoming nuptials. They intended to hold off until the birth of their daughter. “It’s hard to have fun at your wedding when you’re pregnant for obvious reasons,” the MTV host told us last summer. “We thought—because we’ve already committed to our relationship in such a significant way by having our daughter, there isn’t really a huge rush.”

Even then, they wanted to include their child. “We both really like the idea of our daughter being a part of the wedding whether she’s the ring bearer… It would be so cute to have her there and actually be a part of it and not just this kind of crying baby. We’re just going to wait until it feels right. It might be next summer it might be the summer after that, depending on if we want to have the little lady there just walking around.”

Perlongo added, “We look at them as two separate things. You know we’re having the baby, but we also want to get married. So it’s not like we’re trying to have a shotgun wedding.”

The pair first met via Instagram and through mutual friends. “I definitely knew from our first date that this girl was very special,” Schulman told The Knot. “And, I’ve just been falling more and more in love with her since then.”
