It looks like for Rachel Lindsay, ‘The Bachelorette’ journey was a successful one. The attorney, 32, just revealed that she is officially now engaged.
“I am very much so in love and very much so engaged,” Rachel Lindsay told reporters on a press call on May 18. “I am getting my happy ending!” Of course, this comes four days before the premiere of The Bachelorette, so we are a bit surprised to hear her reveal that she is in fact, engaged. We caught up with Chris Harrison right after meeting Rachel’s suitors on Wednesday, and he revealed to us EXCLUSIVELY that he couldn’t be happier for her. “I can tell you she’s happy. It went well,” Chris told us. “She’s great, I love Rachel. I found it easy to be around her, I enjoyed spending time with her. The production really fell in love with her.”
Well they weren’t the only ones! The group of men were actually cast much differently than in the past, he told us, since Rachel is at a different place in her life than some bachelors or bachelorettes in the past. “She’s a little older, she’s professional, she’s set in her life and knows what she wants. We needed men who are ready to settle down,” Chris told us. “I can’t have a 21-year-old beer-chugging frat boy come in. That’s not Rachel. The guys have to step it up if they want to be with her.”
Well it sounds like someone really did step it up! HollywoodLifers, are you excited for Rachel? Do you think she should have kept it a secret longer? Let us know! The premiere of The Bachelorette airs on Monday, May 22 at 9PM ET on ABC.
