Rejoice, Bachelor Nation! Ashley I. has found her Prince Charming. After appearing on season 19 of The Bachelor, Ashley Iaconetti joined the cast of Bachelor in Paradise season two. Here, she met Jared Haibon, who previously appeared on season 11 of The Bachelorette and was the fourth place finisher. They started seeing each other during the show, but Jared wasn’t ready to commit. He returned to Bachelor in Paradise for season three, and Ashley joined the show during the fifth episode. Though he had started seeing someone else during the show, it was clear that Ashley still had feelings for Jared, though nothing happened between them that season.

For a while, it appeared the two had moved on. Jared went on Australia’s version of Bachelor in Paradise, while Ashley thought she found love while competing on Bachelor Winter Games, where she paired up with Kevin Wendt from the Canadian version of the franchise. After Ashley and Kevin broke up, Jared professed his love for his ex, and they went public as a couple earlier this year – surprising many viewers who had watched their romance, and lack thereof, on screen. They even made a long-form video detailing their love story as part of Ashley’s “The Story of Us” YouTube series.
The proposal was filmed for the upcoming season of Bachelor in Paradise, so although so far neither Ashley or Jared have posted additional photos, it won’t be long before we get to see all the details for ourselves.
