“The Bachelorette” Desiree Hartsock is engaged. On the season finale of the show, Chris Siegfried proposed with a sparkling 3.5 carat Neil Lane diamond engagement ring.
“Desiree, I want to be your first and I want to be your last – will you marry me?,” Chris asked. “Yes, a thousand times!,” an ecstatic Desiree cried. “I want to grow old and gray and wrinkly together.”
Viewers were shocked by the last minute turn of events. Desiree had almost abandoned her quest for love when frontrunner, Brooks Forester, left the show. Although she said she was “devastated” and just wanted to go home, in the end she decided to face the final two guys, Chris Siegfried and Drew Kenney, for one final date. It was then that she realized, Chris was the one for her.
On the “After the Final Rose” live show, Chris revealed that Desiree is moving in with him this weekend in Seattle.
“We were building something great on the show and we’ve built something great since and it’s not something I want to get rid of, ever,” he said.
