In case you missed it, Rachel Lindsay gave Bryan the final rose in last night's Bachelorette finale. Yup, Rachel Lindsay and Bryan Abasolo are engaged, and the world is shook. Of course, now that the finale has aired, the couple can finally be open about their engagement that they've been keeping secret for months. And Bryan's Instagram of Rachel after The Bachelorette finale is everything.
In the heartfelt post, Bryan said,
@rachellindsay Rachel my love my rock!! It's felt like forever, but the wait is finally over!!! No longer do I have to hide the fact that you are and always have been the one for me! No longer do I have to keep secret how in love w you I truly am from the rest of the world! Hearing you say "yes" on the top of that castle in Spain was the greatest moment of my life! I was optimistic about what could be prior to stepping out of that limo but never in my wildest dreams could I had foreseen us building such a strong foundation and deep bond in the last 6 months. Every single day literally gets better and better with you and reaffirms that God placed you in my path for a reason. We've gone through so much...the ups, the downs, the challenges...but in the end, what shines above all else is the deep love, loyalty, respect and admiration we have for each other and that's what will continue to carry us through into our future. I can't wait to start our new life together full of fun and adventure! I am so blessed and lucky to have you and I promise to cherish you forever! I love you baby! #whenyouknowyouknow#thebacheloretteabc #bachelornation
He added a clip of Brian McKnight's "Back To One," and I'm so sorry, but I can't stop laughing at how cheesy it is. Very happy for you, Rachel and Bryan, but this song choice is hilarious. I cannot. Bryan's proposal was really sweet, though! (Unless you think Peter should have won, in which case, you probably thought it was annoying.) When Bryan proposed to Rachel, he said,
That first night, it was like a chemistry bomb. You are everything I could ever want in a woman, a wife, a person. I am totally head over heels in love with you. I just hope you feel the same.
My heart has never been more confused. I've always been drawn to gambling my feelings on complicated relationships. … Right here in this moment, I see my forever. I just want to tell you that I love you, and I can't imagine spending my life without you.
Lots of fans were shocked that Rachel chose Bryan over Peter. Rachel and Peter's connection seemed to be stronger than the connection she had with Bryan, but hey, maybe that was just creative editing and the producers making it look that way on purpose to throw us off. Literally anything can happen on The Bachelorette and The Bachelor. Still, fans feel like Rachel is settling for Bryan because Peter refused to propose.
But hey, what can you do? It was Rachel Lindsay's decision to make! I hope Rachel and Bryan end up defying the Bachelor Nation stereotype that none of the couples ever last because, you know, they got engaged after three months of knowing each other and everything.
Now let's take things out with a little smooth R&B, inspired by Bryan:
