JoJo Fletcher is engaged!
It seems like just yesterday we were sobbing tears of joy when JoJo went from Bachelor Ben Higgins' cast aside final rose runner-up to the all-star, fan fave Bachelorette. And guys, she did not disappoint. While there were some definite highs and lows this season, we're equal parts thrilled and saddened to see it come to a close. And in the battle of Jordan Rodgers and Robby Hayes, only one man can be victorious.
So if you have yet to press "play" on your DVRs and watch The Bachelorette finale 2016, you might want to stop reading — spoiler alerts!

Congratulations are in order for JoJo and Jordan! After the reality star said a tearful goodbye to Robby, JoJo was "so ready" to present her final rose to Jordan (who also happens to be Aaron Rodgers' brother). "I'm so unbelievably in love with you," Jordan, in a crisp blue suit, said to JoJo (who was wearing a GORG off-white dress), before getting down on one knee and presenting her with a solitaire, oval-cut Neil Lane diamond set on a pavé band. The pair proclaimed "I love you" over and over again, before JoJo gifted Jordan with her final rose and they embraced each other in the sunset.
Let's hope the Final Rose goes smoothly!
To be honest, rumors were swirling through the interwebs about JoJo and her final pick — The Bachelorette was spotted holding hands with Jordan in April (before this season even aired).
After a long, winding season of falling for a slew of attractive men (who kind of all looked the same...), JoJo has chosen her guy — despite being seemingly totally conflicted up until the very last moment.
"I love you," Robby tells her in the clip, followed by Jordan's own declaration to JoJo: "I'm in love with you."
"I'm in love with two people," JoJo told the camera before breaking down into tears. "I'm feeling so confused," she said. "I feel like I'm having a panic attack."
In another sneak peek of the episode, we saw Robby take a moment to ask JoJo's parents for their daughter's hand in marriage (!!), which brought her mom to tears, People reports.
"I have a really important question to ask JoJo's father," Hayes said before sitting down with The Bachelorette's mother and father. "I want to ask for his blessing in marrying her, but I included her mother."
Hayes then began his speech. "I'm here for Joelle, and I'm not going anywhere and she knows that," he said. "She means the world to me and I can sit here and honestly tell you both that she will be my number one priority in all of life and in everything I do."
Addressing JoJo's father, Hayes continued: "Dr. Fletcher, in asking for your blessing to marry Joelle today, I don't just want her hand in marriage," he said as her mother gets emotional. "I want all that is Joelle Hannah Fletcher, because you guys have raised such a special girl."
"If I'm fortunate enough to receive that blessing, I can promise you both to protect her, to care for her, to love her for my entire life and commitment is a lifetime thing," added Hayes. "It will be in that blessing and through that commitment that I would be honored to be part of your family."
If you ask us, Jordan and JoJo's chemistry couldn't be denied from the get -go. Congratulations to the happy couple!
