From the moment he got engaged to Melissa Rycroft on the season finale of The Bachelor, Jason Mesnick knew he and Molly Malaney would be together forever.
That sounds bizarre, but it's actually true.
Following his famous "After the Final Rose" switcheroo in March, Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney have as happy as clams and talking about getting hitched.
He still caught his true love off guard by placing a diamond and platinum ring in a glass of champagne and passing it to her Monday in New Zealand, however.
"Molly was very surprised; she hadn't expected it to happen then, even though we knew it was a matter of time," her dad Mike told The Grand Rapids Press.
"She was real excited. It was a short conversation, and they hadn't made any plans yet. We just found out ourselves, so this is all breaking very rapidly."
Jason Mesnick asked Molly Malaney's parents for their blessing first.
"Jason called us before the proposal," the Michigan native's father said. "He sent Molly out to get her nails done, and he said he wanted to run it by us first."
Despite the controversial Bachelor finale and the unusual courtship the two had, Mike Malaney is all for it: "We've already determined that he’s a good guy."
He says that Molly Malaney, a 25-year-old fashion buyer for Kohl's, moved to Seattle - where Mesnick lives with five-year-old son Ty - "about a month ago."
"They're just enjoying being together," a source says of the cute couple.
They've yet to set a date. But when they do, it will be a joyous one.
