Shockingly 25-year-old Lauren Burnham did accept 36-year-old Arie Luyendyk Jr.’s marriage proposal on the Tuesday, March 6, episode of The Bachelor: After the Final Rose. Arie got down on one knee and presented Lauren with a Neil Lane engagement ring.
As for the details on the SECOND engagement ring:
Lauren Burnham’s ring is a cushion cut with a center stone surrounded by a diamond halo and is just over 3.6 carats.
After visiting her in Virginia Beach a few years ago Arie decided to take the next step tonight, getting down on bended knee with said ring,
“I have made some bad decisions, but the best decision was running back to you. I can’t imagine a life without you. You have shown me a love that is patient, a love that is kind, and I truly believe you are my soul mate,” Arie said. “I’m ready to face this life with you and all that comes with it. Good and bad. I love you so much. And I want to do this in front of everyone because I want to show you that I should have done this a long time ago.”
Lauren replied, “definitely!”
I’m not holding breath on this one. Look for the ring to be returned by the holidays.
