Bachelorette star Kaitlyn Bristowe and former Bachelorette contestant Jason Tartick are engaged.
On Monday, 35-year-old Tartick proposed to Bristowe in Nashville, Tennessee while they were recording an episode of Bristowe’s Off the Vine podcast. The couple has been dating since 2019 after meeting on her podcast.
Bristowe, also 35, told Entertainment Tonight, “It was everything I could have asked for. The words that came out of his mouth were insanely beautiful. We’ve never locked eyes like that in our lives. We were holding hands, so intense, and I was listening to his every word, but still blacked out.”
They announced their engagement on Instagram.
“Choosing your forever is the most important decision in the world, @kaitlynbristowe you made that decision so easy! Love you to death and forever,” Tartick captioned in a series of pictures.
“We’re at the next step in our relationship where we want to grow even more and we can’t do that long-distance,” Bristowe had shared on Off the Vine podcast in May 2019 after moving in together, “Cheers to new roommates! I can’t wait to see what things you do that drive me nuts.”
Bristowe was “Bachelorette” in 2015 and was engaged to Shawn Booth. They called off their engagement in 2018. Tartick had competed on Becca Kufrin’s season of Bachelorette in 2018, making it to the top three before getting eliminated.
