Ashley Iaconetti Dishes on Her Engagement – Says She ‘Had Her Suspicions’

Jared Haibon and Ashley Iaconetti got engaged in Mexico and they’re finally talking about their fairy tale ending to one of the most dramatic courtships in the franchise’s history.

“As of right now, we just got engaged, we’re fiancées, we’re madly in love and enjoying life,” Jared tells E! News

“It is the sweetest, coolest thing to hear people say that we inspire and give them hope for the love in the future. A lot of the girls who watch me and us on this journey have always been in my position… Perpetually single, the guy they want never wants them back,” Ashley adds. “We kind of have the relatable Bachelor love story because it started out as friends. I think almost 70 percent of couples do start out as friends… It took three years to get to this very wonderful, happy place.”

The couple already have “somebody in mind” to officiate.

“We’re keeping it in the Bachelor family,” Ashley hinted. Jared added that the person is someone who is “very near and dear to our hearts.”

A source tells PEOPLE that Ashley had a feeling Jared might propose during the trip.

“Ashley had her suspicions that an engagement would happen in Mexico. But she didn’t want to get herself too psyched out and then have nothing happen.”

The engagement will officially air on the upcoming season 5 of Bachelor in Paradise.
