Serena Pitt found her happily ever after on season 7 of Bachelor in Paradise. Serena hit it off with Joe Amabile from the very first day on the beach, and their relationship began progressing pretty quickly. At one point, Joe’s fellow Bachelor Nation ex, Kendall Long, came to the beach, which worried Serena, but Joe made it clear that he was 100 percent committed to her and totally over Kendall.

As the weeks dwindled down, Serena and Joe opened up about how they were falling in love with each other. At the final rose ceremony, Joe got down on one knee and proposed with a giant Neil Lane ring. Serena happily accepted, and they spent the next three months secretly building their love story. Now that the finale has aired, though, Serena and Joe are able to go public with their romance, and they couldn’t be happier. Learn more about Serena Below!
