Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth Literally Went Undercover Before Going Public with Engagement


Any couple could tell you how hard it is to sneak in some romantic alone time during all the craziness that comes with those first hectic weeks of your engagement. And no one knows that better than Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe and her fiancé Shawn Booth — who resorted to donning disguises to enjoy their engagement in peace!

Ever since Booth popped the question, the couple has been in hiding, continuing their blossoming relationship via FaceTime and phone calls, while waiting for the July 27 finale to air. But in an Instagram pic yesterday, Kaitlyn hinted at the duo's secret getaways (made possible thanks to some super sneaky wigs and sunglasses!), before the finale's big reveal — a big no-no in order to keep Kaitlyn's choice top secret. But, hey, if this season of The Bachelorette taught us anything, it's that nothing's going to keep these two apart! (Not even the jilted Nick Viall — sorry, Nick!).

"Maybe the other week wasn't our first time out in public!!? #bonnieandclyde @shawn_booth18," Bristowe captioned the funny pic.

This isn't the first time that the couples' love had lead them to breaking the rules of the reality show. "Nobody knows this, but we passed notes all the time," Bristowe shared with People. "It was so fun to pass notes about little things like, this is my favorite Ninja turtle or this is my favorite movie, because on camera, it's always the bigger picture."

Since then, Bristowe and Booth have been enjoying their engagement bliss. And now that the show is officially over, they can toss off their disguises and flaunt their love in public. The couple was most recently spotted having some fun in the sun, fearlessly paddle boarding in Vancouver. Marriage is an adventure, after all, so why not start having some now?

"We've been out in the real world, and I'm still like, I can't wait to be with this guy," Bristowe told People. "I really didn't think I could ever be this happy."
