Former Bachelor Bob Guiney Is Engaged!

Celebrity, TV & Movies

We never thought we'd see this happen: Bob Guiney, former Bachelor, and perpetual, well, bachelor, is off the market. The reality TV star, notorious for playing the field, is officially engaged to love Jessica Canyon. But even more surprising than his actual betrothal, is the hilarious way he announced the upcoming wedding!

On the Today show this morning during a "Guys Tell All" panel, Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb were talking about single when Guiney cut in: "I'm actually engaged now."

As you can imagine, this took Kathie Lee and Hoda by surprise. So much so, that they screamed "WHAT!" in unison as they tried to work through their disbelief.

And then, in the most casual way possible, Guiney shrugs, "I got engaged over Labor Day," he said, adding to quell everyone's doubts, "it's true!"

Turns out, four weeks ago his now-fiancé posted a photo from the romantic proposal. "YES I WILL @bobguiney," she wrote next to an Instagram post of the two on a dock at sunset, "#Engaged #Love #bestbuds #LaborDay #LakeLife Thanks For Helping #phoebethewonderdog."

Guiney, too, dedicated an Instagram post to the momentous occasion. The photo of Canyon and their dog Pheobe, in front of a totem that says Love on top, was captioned with: "My 2 blondes... We're really gonna DO this!! @jescanyon #phoebethewonderdog helped!! #love #family #luckyguy #madeitofficial."

From the sound of their posts, their yellow lab Pheobe helped with the proposal. We can only imagine what the adorable pup will do come the big day!

This goes to show even the most hopeless of Bachelors can find true love one day. Congrats to the happy couple!
