Catherine Lowe (formerly Catherine Giudici) is rocking some new bling! The wife of former Bachelor Sean Lowe, who received his final rose on the legendary ABC series' seventeenth season, has been showing off a new rock on that finger in lieu of her usual engagement ring, and, we've gotta admit, we're loving the expectant mom's new unique sparkler.
Our friends over at Glamour first noticed the new rock on the former Bachelor contestant's Instagram page (way to sleuth, guys!). Catherine, who is 33 weeks pregnant, has forgone her Neil Lane cushion-cut diamond in a split shank halo setting (you know, the one that her hubby gave her during their ultra-romantic televised proposal) for a slightly roomier ring.
Turns out, pregnancy is really getting to Catherine's extremities and, as she revealed in an Instagram post, her Neil Lane engagement and wedding rings are just too small for her mommy-to-be fingers. Her caption reads: "Rockin' a new one. (Mah fingas are growing too much for my 4 1/2 size Neil Lane) #pregprobs"
Hey, an upgrade is an upgrade! Even if it's because your fingers have gotten a bit too swollen.
And might we just say, we are LOVING Catherine's temporary bling — it's so unique! The sparkler is by Blaine Bowen and, according to Glamour, it won't be available on her site until June 1. The crystal appears to be quartz, which, according to Blaine Bowen, represents power, energy and clarity.
Here's our big question: Will the mommy-to-be rock BOTH sparklers after she's given birth to the little Lowe and her fingers have reduced to their normal size? We certainly hope so. See the photos of both rings below!
It seems like just yesterday we were watching Sean and Catherine tie the knot in a stunning and romantic (and televised) wedding ceremony on the network almost two years ago. After a blissful honeymoon in Bora Bora, SeanCat (as they are affectionately called) have been enjoying married life in Dallas ever since.
Famed for his waiting-until-marriage endurance, Sean had been living separately from his bride-to-be until they wed in 2014. Even during his Dancing With the Stars stint, the pair lived next door to each other in the same building due to his beliefs that they should wait until they were legally married to have sex. The expecting couple was most recently featured on We TV's Marriage Boot Camp, along with other reality stars such as Here Comes Honey Boo Boo's "Mama" June Shannon and Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson.
