Guess what, Bachelor Nation? Ben Higgins has put a ring on it! Higgins and his lady love Jess Clarke are engaged!
Last year, Ben Higgins made all of our hearts happy when he became Insta-Official with 24-year-old Jess Clarke. Apparently, Ben was the one who initiated contact by slipping into her DMs, asking if she would have his rose (I'm ad libbing. Idk if that actually happened).
Higgins has been hinting at a 2020 proposal since January, saying:
"I don’t think that’s a question. We’re great. It’s fun. It’s just healthy … I think she would say the same. Our relationship is healthy. I’m a better version of myself, a more free version of myself than I’ve been in a while."
The twosome have been quarantining together at his family's home since the COVID-19 pandemic hit our country.
Higgins told US Weekly that social distancing has helped to prep them for marriage:
"I believe that all time together helps you prep for the next steps. This has definitely been another time where being with Jess has made me excited for our next steps."
Congratulations to Ben and Jess! <3
