Ben is definitely one of the most respectable bachelors we’ve ever seen on the show — and on the finale, he proves it. He reportedly called up the father of the woman he choses before he asks her to marry him, and his response is priceless.
Both JoJo Fletcher and Lauren Bushnell were completely head over heels in love with Ben Higgins going into The Bachelor finale, set to air on March 14. And while he’s said “I love you” to both, he’ll only pick one — and when he does, the lucky woman is just beaming. A new report claims that he actually carries her off after proposing (and she says yes, obviously!).
Ben called the father of his choice to ask for permission before popping the question, an insider revealed to Us Weekly, When her father gave his stamp of approval, Ben actually “cried out and pumped his fist in the air,” their source added. The finale, which will take place in Jamaica, paved the way for a super romantic moment for Ben and his soon-to-be bride. We also know he picks an emerald-cut center stone with a halo — the ring that’s worth $90,000.
“Ben told her she’s the most beautiful woman and he wants to wake up next to her every morning,” the mag’s insider said. To that, she reportedly answered, “I’m the luckiest girl.”
The act of calling his love’s father isn’t that surprising since we’ve seen Ben as a gentleman the entire season. Then on Women Tell All, he couldn’t stop smiling when talking about his new fiancée. “I am more in love that I’ve ever been,” Ben told Chris Harrison with a huge smile on his face. “I would marry that woman tomorrow if I could.”
So, who do you think Ben will chose, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
