Not that she needs to take Sean Lowe's advice, but reigning Bachelorette Andi Dorfman appears to be on the same page with the former Bachelor star.

Waiting until next spring to say "I do" may seem like an eternity for a duo that got engaged after a two-month courtship, but in real world terms?

Pretty normal. And healthy, to be perfectly honest.

Andi and Josh Get Silly

"Andi is okay with a long engagement," a show insider exclusively says. "She is in no rush to get married, but she definitely wants to marry Josh."

Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray say "probably spring" is when they'll the knot, but there is no date set. For now, the engaged pair is simply "very happy together."

He's just happy not to have to share her anymore.

"It was very difficult for Josh in the house," a source said. "He is a very jealous guy and for him to see Andi with other guys ... it was really hard for him."

Former Bachelor star Sean Lowe has the distinction of being the only one of 17 stars of the ABC franchise to marry the woman he chose on the finale.

That's right, The Bachelor is 1-for-17, or 1-for-18 if you count total seasons and both of Brad Womack's failed attempts at finding love, in that regard.

To be fair, Jason Mesnick married his runner-up after changing his mind, and The Bachelorette is slightly more respectable, especially in recent years.

Sean knows what he's talking about when it comes to making a relationship work, so Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray might want to heed his advice:

  • Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray Pic

"Dear Andi, Josh Is Not Your Soul Mate."

In a blog post titled exactly that, Lowe offered both his congratulations and his wisdom to Andi Dorfman, cautioning her that the hard part is still ahead.

"I couldn't be happier for the new couple and wish them nothing but love and happiness going forward," wrote Sean who married Catherine Giudici on ABC.

But here's a reality check: "Nobody told Catherine and me that our toughest challenge would come after we rode those elephants off into the sunset."

The Bachelorette has just wrapped its 10th season, with Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray engaged, moving in together, over the moon and talking about a spring wedding.

Will the Atlanta lovebirds actually make it to the altar, however?

The very first woman to star as The Bachelorette, Trista Sutter (nee Rehn), married her final rose recipient. She remains the franchise's standard-bearer.

After Trista came a long dry spell of ill-fated romances which fizzled, some after a relatively decent amount of time and others very, very quickly.

Two of the last three Bachelorette stars prior to Andi are in long-term relationships, however, as the reality show is experiencing a recent renaissance.

Where will she and Josh rank when all is said and done?

Check out this list of the 10 Bachelorette stars ranked by relationship length and see what kind of competition the ABC show's latest love match is up against:

Given their epic breakup on The Bachelor last winter, it might surprise you to learn that Andi Dorfman is open to inviting Juan Pablo Galavis to her wedding.

On the flip side, Andi would not have become The Bachelorette and met Josh Murray had she not competed for Juan Pablo's heart (and dumped his a--).

Also, she became, and remains, tight with eventual Bachelor winner Nikki Ferrell, which brings us to her one condition for inviting JPG to her wedding:

Quit messing around and propose to her, you idiot!

Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray have been making the media rounds ever since he got down on one knee and asked her to be his wife on Monday night.

Unlike Juan's season, the aftermath is blissful.

They're moving in together and eyeing a spring wedding, the guest list for which currently includes her old flame Juan Pablo as a definite maybe.

Or "a soft no," as Andi put it.

"Unless he marries Nikki," Dorfman joked. "Then by default he'll come to the wedding ... if he marries Nikki, he gets an invite, so I hope he hears that."

"He better put a ring on it!"

After an emotional season of The Bachelorette, Andi Dorfman is happily engaged and planning for a lifetime of happiness with fiance Josh Murray.

She's getting started early on that mission: They're moving in together!

Josh with Andi

"It has definitely been a season of ups and downs, but just knowing that it's Josh and I in the end makes it all worth it," Dorfman, 27, tells People magazine.

A lot of the downs have come in the last 48 hours, and have nothing to do with Murray, the 29-year-old financial services rep and former baseball player.

Andi was called a slut on Fox News - seriously - following runner-up Nick Viall's shocking comment on The Bachelorette's After the Final Rose special.

Nick's now-infamous question of why Dorfman made love to him when she wasn't in love with him became the talk of the finale, but Andi brushed it off.

She's doing the same with any backlash over the ending of the season, saying she's just "enjoying being engaged" ... and planning to move in with Josh!

The Bachelorette star Andi Dorfman was called a slut on Fox News this week, following runner-up Nick Viall's TMI reveal on the After the Final Rose special.

Still not over her several months after the finale was taped, Nick asked Andi why she "made love" with him if she wasn't as in love as Nick was - or at all.

This became the talk of the finale - more than Andi and winner Josh Murray - and naturally, The Five co-host Bob Beckel slammed the Atlanta attorney for it.

"She's a slut!" Beckel blurted out on the Fox News program. "I'm not kidding you. She sleeps with somebody else and doesn't tell the other guy about it."

Co-host Greg Gutfeld seemed to agree, claiming that Andi had no right to tell Nick his awkward, live TV comment was "below the belt," which she did.

"Now all of a sudden he says something honest and you go, ‘Oh, wow, you just stepped over.' Nothing is private when you do a reality show," he said.

"You're on a reality show where you're making out with guys every day."

Fortunately for Andi, co-host Andrea Tantaros jumped to her defense.

"Are you kidding me right now?" Tantaro shot back, speaking for all of us.

"Excuse me, Bob. You probably sleep with a different woman every night."

On The Bachelorette's After the Final Rose special, emotional train wreck Nick Viall shocked fans with a comment about Andi Dorfman that he now regrets.

Revealing they "made love," in the Fantasy Suite, Nick asked Andi why they had sex if she wasn't in love with him, like she clearly is with Josh Murray.

A shocked Andi called his comments "below the belt" and bristled, telling Nick that everything she told him and felt for him was entirely genuine.

Looking back on their emotional confrontation, Nick admitted to reporters Tuesday that he wishes he would've handled the conversation differently.

"I definitely wish I had that opportunity to have that conversation with her in private. I did not go into last night expecting to ask her that," Viall said.

"I was just so caught off guard by her demeanor."

"It wasn't so much about the sex but the level of intimacy that night and I made it very clear where I was in my feelings for her and what something like that meant to me."

After accepting Josh Murray's proposal on the season finale of The Bachelorette on Monday, Andi Dorfman is already thinking ahead to their wedding.

The newly engaged Andi, 27, and Josh, 29, talked with GMA's Lara Spencer about the ABC reality show's finale and what's ahead for the Atlanta duo.

"We would like to do something in the spring," she said. "I think for now, it's like, I finally got the engagement ring, I'm just going to enjoy this for a little while."

"Just enjoy engagement life!"

Though the attractive pair's relationship began in front of the cameras, they did not say whether that will extend to their wedding. "We'll see!" Dorfman said.

Cameras or no cameras, these two are in love, and no matter what Nick Viall's letter says, it looks like Andi made the decision that felt right in her heart.

Murray gushed of his fiancee and the first time he laid eyes on her, saying "She's beautiful. I was intimidated when I first got out of that limo, for sure."

Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray both expressed their love online, as well. "Finally able to shout it from the rooftops!!" Dorfman captioned an Instagram shot.

On The Bachelorette's After the Final Rose ceremony Monday night, emotional runner-up Nick Viall finally got his coveted face time with Andi Dorfman.

The 27-year-old beauty, who got engaged to Josh Murray on the ABC hit's finale, had rebuffed two attempts by Nick to meet up since the show ended.

Viewers were shocked when Nick, on live TV, asked Andi why she "made love" to him if she wasn't in love, a move Andi called "below the belt."

While that was (understandably) the water cooler moment of the episode, one major question remained unanswered: what was in the note he wrote her?

Andi did read the now-infamous letter the sales account executive from Chicago wrote to her and tried to hand-deliver at the Men Tell All taping.

The producers decided to post the letter in its entirety on the show's Facebook page after the finale aired last night, a move Viall isn't upset about.

"I was in no way ashamed of what was in the letter," Nick said today.

"I knew by giving it to her it was a possibility and I accepted that."

As viewers saw - and The Bachelorette spoilers predicted - Nick was indeed pining for her long after he lost out to Josh. Heck, Nick is still not over her.

Here's what Viall had to say about their breakup, their relationship, and how he still yearned for a second chance and envisioned his future with Dorfman:

The Bachelor and Bachelorette fans have long wondered exactly what goes on in the famed Fantasy Suite, and thanks to Nick Viall's meltdown, well ...

Suffice it to say, there is a measure of intimacy between at least some of the contenders who accept the invitation to join the star for an overnight date.

For Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray, it was indeed a key step in their relationship, but not for the reasons Nick shockingly brought up last night.

They bonded and discussed a variety of topics during their overnight date, including what engagement ring Josh should choose for his bride-to-be.

"It's a pretty big deal. I might as well tell him [what I want] if we're getting engaged!" Dorfman told ABC, and she "could not be happier" with his choice.

"Normal couples would go ring shopping or talk about it," Andi noted, "so I'm like, 'Round, halo, maybe triple shank." Josh was taking notes, too.
