Stop what you’re doing right now because your fave Bachelor couple just got engaged! According to multiple outlets, Jared Haibon proposed to Ashley Iaconetti on a beach in Mexico over the weekend while they were filming the upcoming fifth season of Bachelor in Paradise (which premieres this summer BTW). How freakin’ perfect!? We’re so excited.

In photos obtained by People, you can see Jared on one knee with a diamond ring in his hands as Ashley throws her head back in excitement. Those of you who have been following Jared and Ashley’s whirlwind romance know that their engagement has come full circle since the two met in 2015 during season two of BiP. How romantic of him to propose at the same place they first met? Ugh, our hearts! Although their romantic relationship didn’t start right away, their appearance on the show was definitely the start to their love story. Ashley had a crush on Jared as soon as they first met, but it took Jared a little time to realize he had romantic feelings for her – hence why they were just friends for years. However, the couple officially began dating this March (after Ashley split from Bachelor Winter Games star Kevin Wendt) and now the two are more in love than ever.

Jared and Ashley even shared their story with a 44-minute video for Ashley’s web series “The Story of Us,” explaining the behind-the-scenes details of their romance, including how they went from meeting on BiP to maintaining a complicated friendship and how that all led them to become an official couple. “I never felt like it was over between us after Paradise,” Jared explained in the video. “I’m not gonna lie and say that I was in love with Ashley [at first]. It was a slow build for me.”

After going public with their relationship, Ashley and Jared continue to prove that their story is what Bachelor dreams are made of. They constantly gush about one another on Instagram and most recently Jared even admitted that he had found his life partner in Ashley.

“As soon as we started dating, we both knew that this isn’t just for us to date as boyfriend/girlfriend — this was more so we were going to date because we see a potential life partner in each other,” Jared told People in May, adding that they already call each other husband and wife. “I think we just both see each other as lifelong partners, so it’s not scary, for me personally, to call her my future wife.”

You can bet we’ll all be watching Jared propose to Ashley this summer on BiP! It’s safe to say that ABC knows exactly what to do to make sure we ALL tune in.
