Do not cry for Renee Oteri, Bachelor Nation.

"She is so happy and has wanted this with her fiance for a very long time!" an insider tells the tabloid. "We're all so happy to see them back together!"

The name of Oteri's betrothed is unknown at this time, but an Us source says all of Renee's friends have wanted to see the couple end up together.

And while this may seem sudden to those who watch The Bachelor online or on television, keep in mind: filming for Renee Oteri ended in October.

Moreover, "Her fiance has known [Renee's son] Ben since he was a baby and Renee is so excited to start over with her new family in Seattle," an insider said.

"She'll continue to be a photographer!"

It all sounds so perfect! As for who actually walks away with Juan Pablo's heart March 10? Will it be Nikki Ferrell or Clare Crawley with the final rose?
