The winner of ‘The Bachelorette’ proposed to Ashley in Fiji on May 13, and she said yes — but for now, Ashley must keep her fiance’s identity a secret!

Bachelorette Ashley Hebert has tried to remain mum about the outcome of the hit ABC reality show, but it’s happy news for the 27-year-old soon-to-be Dentist. The winner of Ashley’s final rose proposed to Ashley with a stunning Neil Lane diamond while filming the season finale on May 13 on a remote Fiji island!

Ashley‘s elated,” a source tells Life & Style magazine. “She’s engaged to the winner and is wearing her engagement ring.”

And Ashley’s fiance proposed in the most romantic of settings. “There’s a beautiful terrace perched at the end of the island where you can see the sunset, the perfect place for a proposal,” gushes a witness. “It would be hard not say yes if someone proposed to you there.”

“I’m happy with the way things turned out for me,” Ashley says, yet she can’t confirm the truth herself until the finale airs in August as she’s under contract with ABC to keep quiet.

But the guy Ashley’s engaged to sounds like Mr. Perfect. “He said, ‘I’m in such a great place in my life and I’m the happiest I’ve ever been,'” reveals the insider. “He’s the sweetest guy, and he’s very sensitive. He had his heart broken in the past, but he loves being in a relationship, and he and Ashley have great chemistry.” Hmm … could the source be talking about rumored winner J.P. Rosenbaum?

The witness describes Ashley’s final dates with the last two contenders. The first took place on May 11 at the Vomo Island Resort beach. “They stopped for some hugging and kissing,” the witness shares. “They clearly had a bond. And it couldn’t have been more romantic with the stunning backdrop of the ocean and islands behind them.” On May 12, Ashley took a helicopter ride with one of the final contestants to a secluded cove.

Until the August finale, Ashley and her fiance have to keep their relationship confidential — and the only time they can see each other is during secret rendezvous set up by ABC.

“They’ve been sneaking away for sexy date nights whenever they can,” another source notes.
