“The Bachelor” Ben Higgins is engaged to flight attendant Lauren Bushnell.
Higgins got down on one knee and proposed in Jamaica with a Neil Lane diamond engagement ring. The $100,000 ring features a 3-carat emerald-cut center stone flanked by two baguette diamonds set in platinum.
“Lauren, I never want to say goodbye to you,” Ben said during the emotional finale of the show. “I want to wake up every morning and kiss you on the face. I want to go to bed at night and know that in the morning I’m going to wake up to the most beautiful woman that I’ve ever laid eyes on. My desire from here on out is to live for you, commit to you, love you, hold you, kiss you a lot. Lauren I want to spend the rest of my life with you. Will you marry me?”
After accepting his proposal and the final rose, the newly engaged couple took off in a helicopter together.
Ben and Lauren plan to move in together in Denver next month. The couple say they plan to wed soon.
