‘The Bachelor’s Chris Soules & Whitney Bischoff: Soul Mates?
Talking about getting lucky in love. That must be how Chris and Whitney feel now that they are engaged to be married after their run on The Bachelor!
“She was the person I could see myself with,” Chris told People in the couple’s first post-show interview. “Whitney is my soulmate. It became even more clear at the end. It just felt right.”
Chris also went on to say that Becca Tilley wasn’t the right fit because she was in a “different place” in her life than he was. “My sister said, ‘You’re not looking for a girlfriend, you’re looking for a wife.’ That’s the truth,” Chris explained.
Can you believe these two were able to keep their romance a secret for almost five months? Yes, that’s right, The Bachelor wrapped in Nov. 2014 — so they’ve been sitting on this exciting secret for a while!
How Does Whitney Feel Now That It’s Over?
“I’m relieved that this is over,” Whitney shared in the interview. Who can blame her? Not only was she competing against some stiff contestants for Chris’ affection, but once she got it she had to keep her lips sealed.
But, it must have all been worth it, because now these two have a future and a life to plan together. So exciting!
“I’m looking forward to the life that we’re going to start. I think a lot of great things are going to happen,” Whitney gushed. Aw!
