Ashley Iaconetti & Jared Haibon are ENGAGED!!!
If someone had told you 2 years ago that Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon would be engaged one day you would have thought they were crazy. Jared did everything short of filing a restraining order against Ashley for her zealous and unrequited affection for him.
But guess what? Jared just got down on bended knee — not to serve a TRO, but to deliver an engagement ring and a heartfelt proposal on Sunday in Mexico while preparing for the upcoming fifth season of Bachelor in Paradise. I guess this means ABC crews were there to capture the special moment–and may even mean that Neil Lane popped in with a suitcase full of engagement rings.
So when did Jared began to look at Ashley as a potential girlfriend and not as an obstacle to ever finding a girlfriend? Evidently the two spent a weekend spent in Virginia with their friends for a charity event Iaconetti was planned, Haibon told PEOPLE “he was in love.” “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.”
Iaconetti added, “I knew that he was looking at me!”
And the rest is Bachelor Nation history!!!
