Rachel Lindsay Turns 35! Look Back at Her Big Year
April 21 is a big day for "Big Rach" — she turns 35!
Rachel Lindsay may not be able to party it up in Miami for her birthday due to stay-at-home orders, but she undoubtedly felt the love from family and friends near and far. Her husband Bryan Abasolo decorated their home with giant black and gold balloons that spelled out "Happy Birthday" and "35." He also surprised her with mini cupcakes and gorgeous flowers.
Bryan's display of affection for Rachel spilled over into a heartfelt Instagram post where he wrote about their relationship and how "lucky" he feels to be her husband.
"This day belongs to my beautiful wife," he began. "Rachel, I absolutely love the story of us! Who would have thought that (almost) exactly 3 yrs ago today, after leaving my family’s home together for the first time, we would be happily married, arm in arm, ready to take on the world!"
His caption continued, "Especially in today’s uncertain times, your presence constantly reminds me how lucky I am and I find myself counting my blessings for the fact that I have such a genuine, loving, and supportive partner to lean on no matter what. Each and every day that passes being with you just grows sweeter and sweeter and I look forward to pampering you all day and celebrating more milestone birthdays with you my love! I love you so much, Happy Birthday!!"

The past year has been a whirlwind of excitement for the Season 13 Bachelorette. In July, she and a group of friends — many Bachelor Nation pals included — traveled to Costa Rica for her bachelorette party, which went by the name "Camp Costa Rachel."
At around the same time, she launched the official "Bachelor" podcast "Bachelor Happy Hour" with Ali Fedotowsky-Manno. Many episodes later, Rachel is still asking the tough questions alongside Becca Kufrin and getting her interviewees to spill the truth.
Just under a month later on August 24, she and Bryan got married at Royalton Suites Cancún. Attendees included Astrid Loch and Kevin Wendt, Kristian Schulman, Alexis Waters, Whitney Fransway, and more.
