Ben struggled to pick his lady love, but once he did, he made her feel like the luckiest girl alive. Find out the sweet words he said to her before getting down on one knee.
It’s clear that Ben Higgins has real feelings about both Lauren B. and JoJo — but which one does he chose? Well we’re not giving that away, but we can tell you he was so shaken up after saying goodbye, he waited a few hours before having the next woman — his now fiancée arrive.
“You’re proposing to somebody on the same day that you broke up with somebody you love — that’s tough,” he told Us magazine. “The situation got really hard at the end and confusing at times, but ultimately, I knew that she was the right woman for me.” However, once he did say his goodbyes to one — he was ready to get super romantic.
We told you he actually called his bride-to-be’s father to ask his permission before proposing and when she said yes — he “cried out and pumped his fist in the air,” a source told the mag. “Ben told her she’s the most beautiful woman and he wants to wake up next to her every morning. She said, ‘I’m the luckiest girl!'” With that, he carried her into the sunset and she apparently joked she’d be pretty upset if he dropped her.
Well, the ring was $90,000 so it was probably pretty heavy! Anyway, after the finale, Ben did tell his new fiancée that he said “I love you” to the runner up as well — something she wasn’t thrilled about, but “seeing it was a lot harder.” However, they’ve moved past it now, he said. “We continue to move forward because we continue to communicate,” he told Us. “I know I have found true love, and any obstacles are between us.” A source close to the lucky lady also told the mag that while they are together, there is a chance this could be “too much for them to overcome.”
Only time will tell! Do you think they’ll live happily ever after?
