Tonight The Bachelor premiered and 26-year-old Bachelor Ben Higgins greeted his 28 amazing ladies at the Bachelor mansion along with show host Chris Harrison.
Something that makes this season a tiny bit different is that the Bachelor is specifically looking for someone who shares his faith in God.
Ben is the only child of parents, David and Amy Higgins who are also very Christian and have been happily married for 34 years.
This morning as he kicked off the season by hitting all of the ABC talk shows he revealed some cute details about his parents and his faith saying his mom has been praying for his future wife since the day he was born on March 23rd, 1989.
“they have encouraged me the whole time.”…….”My mom, and I know this for a fact, has prayed for my wife every day since the day I was born.”
Oh my God!!! Did Amy Diane Higgins pray he would find her on national television on The Bachelor? I hope so!
Ben grew up very dedicated to his Christianity (like Sean Lowe). He spent a lot of time with the Baker Youth Club and teaching Sunday school at the Warsaw Community Church. He even has a quote on his Twitter profile that reads “sweetly broken, wholly surrendered” referring to his believe in JC.
Ben has conceded that he is not a virgin, but I suspect his season will be G-rated and I suspect we will not be seeing any impromptu sex scenes like we did with Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe.
