‘The Bachelorette’: Kaitlyn Bristowe and Jason Tartick Are Engaged
The duo began dating in 2019, and by all accounts, their relationship continued to go on strong ever since. They initially met each other on Kaitlyn’s podcast, and that is the same place that Jason decided to propose the engagement. In a post shared on Kaitlyn’s Instagram, we can see a picture of the duo as Jason kisses Kaitlyn on the cheek with a beverage in his hand. The post was captioned by the following comments: “Don’t pinch me.”
So what was the reaction of those close around them? Well, as could be expected, significant excitement. Ali Fedotowsky simply wrote: “So wonderful!!!!!! AND THAT RING!!!!!!!,” while Peter Weber said: “So happy for you two!” It does mark another significant step in Kaitlyn’s life. She is currently co-hosting The Bachelorette alongside Tayshia Adams, and now she has another milestone under her belt.
But for all the great news, it did take Kaitlyn by surprise. She had no idea about the engagement and assumed that it was just another day at the office. Such a thing could have backfired, especially when you put another person on the spot in front of potentially millions of people. However, Jason knew that Kaitlyn was ready to commit.
And so it showed, by her response to the proposal. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, she opened up on the circumstances of the proposal. She said: “Jason’s like, ‘Kaitlyn, we’re not doing a podcast.’ And I’m like, ‘You forgot to hit record, didn’t you!. He was like, ‘No, this is something else,’ and he got up, and I saw him bring out a ring box from the drawer.”
Despite being shocked by the whole matter, she had no hesitation in accepting Jason as her long-term lover. She had been very vocal about missing Jason and her dogs in Nashville prior to filming for The Bachelorette. So when Jason made his move, it stuck in her mind forever.
She continued: “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, [it was] so intense, and I was listening to his every word, but still blacked out.”
