Bachelor In Paradise Stars Ashley Iaconetti And Jared Haibon Are Engaged

Bachelor in Paradise's Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon are slated to marry!

People reports that Haibon proposed to Iaconetti on Sunday, June 18, 2018. The two reality TV stars were in Mexico at the time to film the fifth season of Bachelor in Paradise.

As the magazine notes, Iaconetti expressed her interest in Haibon during the second season of the show, but Haibon did not return her feelings at the time. Despite Iaconetti's heartbreak, the two continued being friends, getting closer than ever before. After attending a charity event that Iaconetti planned, Haibon realized that he had feelings for her. "I was in love," he told People. "That was such a different experience being with someone in the show and in real life. [Iaconetti was] just so down to earth and easy-going, ambitious ... sexy."

Haibon later confessed his feelings to Iaconetti in a letter, following her breakup with Bachelor Winter Games' Kevin Wendt. In May 2018, Haibon and Iaconetti confirmed that they were dating.

The couple had previously commented on the seriousness of their relationship in the weeks leading up to their engagement. "He is my person," Iaconetti said on The Ben and Ashley I Almost Famous Podcast on Tuesday, June 12 (via E! News). "He is my soulmate."

In early June, Haibon spoke with E! News about his romance with Iaconetti, stating, "It feels good to know I'll never go on a first date again."

Congratulations to the happy pair on their engagement!
