Bachelor Nation, prepare yourself. Another engagement ring, courtesy of Neil Lane of course, has officially been doled out. This time, the lucky receiver of said sparkler is none other than Ashley Iaconetti! That's right, folks—Ashley's on-again off-again love, Jared Haibon, has popped the question, and it will all air on the upcoming fifth season of Bachelor in Paradise.
The two Bachelor Nation alums are currently in sunny Mexico, filming the summer spin-off, which is where they first met back in 2015. Ashley and Jared first appeared on seasons two and three of Bachelor in Paradise, where Ashely professed her feelings for Jared early on. Jared, however, did not reciprocate just yet.
Jared continued his search for love on Bachelor in Paradise Australia, while Ashley headed to Bachelor Winter Games, where she met Kevin Wendt. But when the relationship between Ashely and her Canadian beau fizzled out, Jared took the opportunity to confess his love for the former Bachelor contestant in the form of a love letter. "I was scream-crying basically alone in my apartment reading that just sobbing and sobbing," Ashley told People of her fiancé's note.
In May, the couple went public with their new relationship, detailing their love story in a Youtube video titled, "The Story of Us."
“There’s just this undeniable, magnetic force between the two of us that just is indescribable,” Jared also shared with People at the time. “Love conquered.” It certainly did, as People shared today that Jared indeed proposed to Ashely on a gorgeous beach on Bachelor in Paradise.
In the proposal photo, Jared is seen down on one knee in front of Ashley, who is wearing a sunny yellow sundress that matches her already-visible bridal glow.
Congratulations, Ashely and Jared! We definitely see a beach wedding in your future. Perhaps a televised one in which Chris Harrison officiates? Fingers crossed!
