ABC recently released the bios of Rachel Lindsay's 31 suitors on "The Bachelorette" Season 13, and she just confirmed that, yep, she picked one of 'em. And he picked her back. And they got Neil Lane involved for an official engagement.
"The Bachelor" stars don't always confirm engagements before the season starts; sometimes they try to play it coy. But spoilers also just came out yesterday about who Rachel reportedly picks in the end, so maybe the producers wanted to return the story to Rachel and let her do the talking.
The 31-year-old lawyer didn't reveal which guy she picked, of course, but she did confirm to reporters that she's engaged to someone she described as "If I had a list, he would check everything off."
"I am very much so in love and very much so engaged. I am getting my happy ending! [...] Every morning I wake up and pinch myself."
She sounds happy! That said, she also admitted she and her fiancé don't even know each other that well and they're looking forward to being able to spend more time together ... which they can't even do, at least publicly, until the season ends.
"I'm used to a long-distance relationship where we can't see each other all the time and we can't be public. I'm used to that. But it's hard when you're so excited about something and you can't share it with everyone. But we make sure to communicate with each other all the time, and that's all you can really do."
What about wedding plans?
"I want us to get the chance to get to know each other. Maybe it will be [quick]. Maybe it will be a longer engagement like ['Bachelorette' couple] Shawn [Booth] and Kaitlyn [Bristowe]. We just really want to get to know each other."
"The Bachelorette" premieres this Monday, May 22 at 9 p.m., after "Dancing With the Stars." Check out all of her contestant bios. (We're going with Blake K as an early favorite to be the 2018 Bachelor.) And if you're interested in those spoilers about who she reportedly picks, head over here.
