Ben Higgins fell in love with two women during his time as The Bachelor, but he admits that Lauren Bushnell was “always the one” in an interview with People magazine.
Watch the proposal below and check out photos of Ben and Lauren’s first public moments together on the After The Final Rose special.
Host Chris Harrison says it every season, but it really was the “most dramatic season finale ever.” Ben sent an emotional JoJo home (she’s the new Bachelorette!) and then proposed to Lauren. After telling Lauren “you are my person,” Ben got down on one knee and placed a stunning emerald cut diamond engagement ring on her finger.
And as for those wedding bells, Ben said they are prepared to tie the knot “soon,” but first thing’s first — Lauren will be moving from L.A. to Denver over the next few weeks. Let’s hope ABC springs for a TV wedding when they set the date!
“Lauren, I never want to say goodbye to you. I want to wake up every morning and kiss you on the face. I want to go to bed at night and know that in the morning I will wake up to the most beautiful woman I’ve ever laid eyes on. My desire from here on out is to live for you, commit to you, love you, hold you, and kiss you a lot…”
Do you think Ben and Lauren will be one of the few couples from the Bachelor franchise to get married, and what do you think about ABC’s choice to pick JoJo over Caila as the next Bachelorette?
