Bachelor no more!
Ben Higgins got engaged to longtime girlfriend Jessica Clarke on Friday night.
“I don’t remember everything you said, but I know that I said yes,” Jessica Clarke wrote in an Instagram post. “I woke up in a dream today and I get to live in this dream every day from now on (eeeep).”
Ben Higgins spoke to ET about the proposal.
“I went back to a pond behind her house, and we had set it up with sunflowers near a bench. It’s right in their backyard, but a little hidden,” Ben told the publication.
“I proposed and her family and mine were watching from a distance, and then we all celebrated together. I was super nervous.”
“She’s my best friend, my partner and I love her. I was nervous to kind of do this whole thing in front of her. I wasn’t anxious, it’s just a big moment!”
Chris Harrison took to his Instagram with girlfriend Lauren Zima to wish the newest engaged couple.
“We’ve come a long way my friend. Congratulations to @higgins.ben finding the love of his life and getting engaged to the beautiful @jessclarke_ All my blessings to these two,” he captioned the photo.
About the ring, Ben said: “I’m pretty happy with it. It took a lot of work and big team effort.”
Congrats to Ben and Jessica!
