Divorce

In 2012, the actress, who appeared on "Survivor: Philippines" and her pastor husband divorced.  According to reports, Lisa had apparently waited for their youngest child, who was 19 at the time, to leave for college before she filed for divorce in Denton County, Texas, in December 2011.

The divorce was uncontested by Cauble, who was 13 years older than her. The pair had kept their split under wraps until they filed for divorce.

Reports at the time claimed that the couple had been living separately for a while before the divorce. Cauble reportedly bought a home in North Texas.

Moving On

Now, Lisa is happily dating Pete Harris. The pair regularly give fans a glimpse of their relationship on Instagram. However, they actively avoid appearing in the press and keep a very low profile.

From the pictures, it appears that Pete may have a child from a previous relationship. The cute family pics hint that they are very much in love.  

Welchel, who recently announced on Instagram that she was going to be a grandmother, called Pete "my love" in one pic. Fans can't seem to get enough of the couple and regularly flood the comments section of their posts with love and support.

One fan commented, "You look the happiest I have ever seen you. You so deserve it Lisa!"

In one cute picture, Pete can be seen pointing to a sign reading love next to him. He smiled sweetly at the camera and Lisa's caption reflected the words in the image.

"If you’ve been asking for a sign... #alwayschooselove," wrote Lisa in the caption.

It looks like this time the star has found true love and the pair appear to be more and more in love as time goes on.
