These two are living proof that you don't need to be given a rose every week to keep the romance fire flaming! The fantasy dates may have come to an end but Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth are still going strong and even shacking up! The reality TV lovebirds recently opened up about their latest major relationship milestone: Moving in together!
Bristowe and Booth aren't waiting until the wedding to create a home, or even go by a new name! "We call ourselves the Boothstowes," the former Bachelorette explained to People. "But when I get married, I'm going to take his name. I'm not a traditional person, but when it comes to that, I like the idea of being traditional. I think it's romantic." As for now, it sounds like there is no shortage of romance in the Boothstowe home. "We're very touchy feely," divulged Bristowe. "That's how we show our love. We grab each other's butts all the time!"
In addition to all that butt-grabbing (we didn't see any of that on The Bachelorette!), the on-screen sweethearts have been busy settling into their domestic bliss in their shared Nashville home. "I love Shawn more now than the day he proposed," says Bristowe. "That was like a fantasy love. Now it's real."
"There was no weird, 'Oh no am I going to be able to live with this?'" she notes. "I get mad at him when he shaves and his hair is all over the sink. But that's about it!"
But besides the lack of co-habiting hiccups, these two are in no rush to the altar after getting engaged on last July's Bachelorette season finale. "We only knew each other for ten weeks before I proposed," Booth points out. "We're both normal people and the most normal thing we can do is wait."
"We're living together, we're enjoying being engaged. When we start to plan, we'll let everybody know!" Booth's bride-to-be adds.
You better let us know, Bristowe! We'll be checking our mail for the save-the-date!
