‘Bachelor’ Ben Higgins Engaged to Lauren Bushnell!


Sorry ladies, but Ben Higgins is officially off the market!

We now know who the Bachelor 2016 star has picked as his future wife and it's Lauren Bushnell! Sure, we've known for months thanks to spoilers, but now Ben's final pick is completely out in the open.

The Colorado-based hunk chose the L.A. blonde to be his forever love over JoJo Fletcher in the final rose ceremony, which was filmed in Jamaica. Prior to that, bubbly Caila Quinn was eliminated following overnight dates.

And yes, Ben did pop the question with the standard Neil Lane sparkler, and Lauren said yes! As did her dad when Ben called him to ask for Lauren's hand in marriage.

Even though it was so hard to watch Ben say goodbye to JoJo, it makes sense he chose Lauren. Not only did they have a connection from the very beginning, but Lauren was open the whole season about how much she wanted to be with Ben.

We can’t wait to see this romance unfold once the cameras stop airing. Congrats to the happy couple and stay tuned to Wetpaint for more coverage of Bachelor 2016!
