Clare & Dale Revealed Their Relationship Status Now That They're Off 'The Bachelorette'
Bachelor Nation has never seen a season of The Bachelorette quite like Clare Crawley's. This is the first time a Bachelorette has focused so much of her attention and energy on just one of her men, but it all seems to have worked out for Clare and her contestant of choice, Dale Moss. The pair had an electric connection from the get-go, and following their quick proposal and departure from the show during the Nov. 5 episode, now fans want to know if Clare and Dale are still engaged after The Bachelorette. Shippers of the happy couple will be pleased.
During Week 4 of The Bachelorette, Clare was faced with a big decision: Either make an effort to get to know more of her other guys, or take the leap to leave the show with Dale. As fans expected, Clare chose to give up her lead role to be with Dale. And Dale reciprocated by proposing to Clare. (I repeat: During Week 4.) The two left the show after getting engaged.
Of course, most fans knew this was coming, thanks to all the rumors that have been swirling about this season since before it even began. But while fans were pretty sure Clare and Dale were getting engaged on the show, they didn't know if they would stay engaged. Rumors about Clare and Dale's post-show relationship status started sprouting up in October, when Clare was spotted wearing an engagement ring on Instagram. However, Clare cleared up those rumors with an Instagram post in which she wrote, "People have noticed I wear this ring on my wedding finger, and have asked why! The truth is because it is a commitment to myself first and foremost, to embody self-love." Then, another ring-spotting moment happened on Nov. 5 (the day of Clare's final Bachelorette episode), when Entertainment Tonight published photos of Clare wearing a big diamond ring on her left ring finger while out and about. As of publication time, Clare did not address those photos.
Immediately following the moment Clare and Dale got engaged on the Nov. 5 episode of the show, the couple took to Instagram to commemorate the moment, each sharing photos of the proposal along with sweet messages. Dale wrote: "Never a point I won’t show up for you," and tagged Clare. Similarly, Clare captioned hers: "It’s official!! Love wins!!!! 💍❤️!!! I love you @dalemoss13 !!!!"
On Nov. 6, the morning after the big episode, Clare and Dale were guests on Rachel Lindsay and Becca Kufrin's Bachelor Happy Hour podcast, during which they confirmed they are not only still engaged, but house-shopping together.
For those who want even more deets on the couple's life together, the promo for the Nov. 10 episode of The Bachelorette promises a tell-all between Clare and Dale. Catch it on Tuesday, Nov. 10, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
