Congratulations are in order for Ashley Salter! The ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ star is engaged to her college sweetheart, Austin Brannen. She shared the exciting news with a ‘Bachelor’ themed announcement and also showed off her gorgeous ring!
Ashley Salter is really in paradise now. The 25-year-old stunner, who recently lost out in love on Bachelor in Paradise, is now happily engaged to her college sweetheart, Austin Brannen. Ashley announced the news on Instagram on Sept. 12 with a clever Bachelor joke that puts all the men who broke her heart on television in their place!
It feels like we just saw Ashley getting her heart broken on the reality TV series, but now she’s getting a real shot at love! Ashley couldn’t help but gush about the big news on Instagram after Austin’s romantic proposal — which yes, involved roses! The blonde bombshell posted a pic of of her gorgeous sparkler and a dozen red roses. She accurately captioned the pic: “@agbrannen 12 is better than 1 #roses.” We love that she took a clever little dig at the Bachelor. How could she not?
According to Reality Steve, Ashley reunited with Austin this past June, and it seems like sparks were flying all over again. Austin seemingly went all out for his romantic proposal, too. She shared adorable pics of her and Austin standing on a romantic rooftop, where it appears he popped the big question! Austin has also been showing off their rekindled love on Instagram. He even shared a sweet throwback pic of the couple from their college days!
It’s great to see Ashley so happy with Austin, after her failed relationships on television. She previously lost out in love to Nick Peterson on The Bachelor, and more recently to Dan Cox, who broke her heart when he told her he wanted to pursue other people. Well, now look how happy she is! Congrats to the happy couple.
