The Bachelor's newly engaged couple seem to be going full steam ahead and are more than ready to settle down and tie the knot. The happy couple from the reality TV show, The Bachelor, spoke to E! News and revealed their eagerness to get married. Lauren B reportedly said that the couple is "absolutely" open to the idea of having their wedding televised.
According to E! the couple is already in talks about wedding details just after 36-year-old Arie Luyendyk Jr. ended his Bachelor journey by proposing to Lauren B with a beautiful 3.65 carat Neil Lane ring during the live Tuesday episode 'After The Final Rose'. The couple is also hoping to get married sooner rather than later.
Arie told E!, "We want a pretty short engagement. We're really excited to get married, so we're planning our wedding. That's something we talked about, but it would have to work within our timeline. I know that we want to get married soon," Arie added.
Lauren admitted that she totally pushed Arie to pop the question sooner versus later because of the simple reason that they were already planning their wedding and it was strange not to be officially engaged. Despite her hints, she was still surprised and taken aback by Arie's proposal during the episode.
25-year-old Lauren is planning to move to Arizona soon and said, "He was dropping hints before, so I suspected it was going to happen but I didn't know for sure."
Luyendyk Jr. also spoke to PEOPLE and revealed, "We’re so ready for this. Lauren told me I’m four months late on this proposal, and I wanted to give it to her and I wanted everyone at home to share in it."
As most of you would know by now, The Bachelor had a pretty dramatic ending and a twist when Arie Luyendyk Jr. initially proposed to another contestant, Becca K. However, he quickly changed his mind and broke off the engagement only to propose to Lauren B. The whole affair caused a lot of backlash from The Bachelor viewers as well as some of the other contestants.
Becca K even made a joke on Twitter and posted a picture of the early cast in which she is seen making a bewildered face. She had posted the photograph along with the caption, " Deep down, I knew". Lauren B, on the other hand, posted a picture of herself with the caption, "Thinking about tonight...More wine please.🍷
