Well, we thought we’d already seen all the crazy shenanigans that Ashley S. could throw our way. In the short time we’ve known the former Bachelor and, most recently, Bachelor in Paradise cast member, she’s made pals with a lovely flock of birds and confused an onion with a pomegranate. But get this… she just announced that she’s ENGAGED!
While in Paradise, Ashley was dumped by both Dan and Nick, and it was starting to get a bit depressing. Look who’s locked down now, suckers! So who’s the lucky fella? Ashley’s college boyfriend, Austin Brannen, from her time at Auburn University. He’s the VP of a real estate firm, and if you choose to believe Reality Steve—which 99% of the time we do!—the pair reconnected in June.
Ashley revealed her big news with a series of romantic Instagram posts that showed off her stunning rock and also happened to feature a bouquet of red roses—hey, at least her fiancé’s got a sense of humor.
We’re totally behind this whirlwind affair. It’s no shorter than the amount of time she was given to find love on television. And here’s hoping it lasts because these two are adorbs.
Are you surprised by Ashley S.'s quick engagement? Or just plain thrilled she finally found someone?
