Bachelor Nation Reacts to Kaitlyn Bristowe & Jason Tartick's Engagement
After Kaitlyn Bristowe and Jason Tartick announced their engagement on Tuesday, Bachelor Nation lit up with celebratory reactions to the couple’s exciting news.
As Kaitlyn explained in an interview with “Entertainment Tonight,” Jason’s proposal came as a surprise as she recorded an upcoming episode of her “Off the Vine” podcast.
“It was everything I could have asked for,” said the Season 11 Bachelorette, who began dating Jason in 2019. “The words that came out of his mouth were insanely beautiful. We’ve never locked eyes like that in our lives. We were holding hands, so intense, and I was listening to his every word but still blacked out.”
Later, Kaitlyn — who lives in Nashville with Jason and their two dogs Pinot and Ramen — took to Instagram to share a series of stunning engagement photos that highlight the gorgeous diamond ring her new fiancé asked for her hand in marriage with.
