Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried have quelled the breakup rumors - at least for now - with another cute date night chronicled on social media.

The Bachelorette champs attended the Seattle Seahawks preseason game in matching shirts, and Chris wrote a sweet caption with this pic:

“Love this girl! First Seahawks game together and we are looking forward to many more for years to come! Go Hawks! @hartsdesire4 #Seattle”

On her own Instagram, new Seattle resident Desiree Hartsock tweeted “New city. New team. @chrisrsiegfried Go hawks! Thanks @petecarroll.”

Yes, that is Seattle coach Pete Carroll with the lovebirds.

Just two weeks after The Bachelorette ended, Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried are already on the rocks and on the verge of a split, a new report indicates.

In fairness, the evidence of this is questionable at best.

Witnesses who saw them out and about over the weekend reported the discord, the lack of conversation, and the fact that they "don't look content."

Another source says that they were "knee deep in a serious conversation" and that there "appeared to be problems" between them already.

So, take it with a grain of salt. Or a boulder.

Still, some people won't be surprised by such reports, and will theorize that it's the beginning of the end for Desiree Hartsock and her second choice.

Even her brother Nate said she wanted to get engaged really badly heading into the ABC reality show and she obviously "settled" for Chris Siegfried.

Chris Siegfried, this year's winner of The Bachelorette and Desiree Hartsock's everlasting love, is publishing a book of his poetry, he revealed on Twitter.

The book is called Diamonds + Hearts: A Poetic Memoir.

While we admire Chris Siegfried for getting the girl and putting it all on the line, we're not sure about his "prose." It seems better suited for, say, The Bachelorette:

"I step out of that limo / You, standing there so beautiful in that dress / I lost my breath for that moment / Then thought, getting down on one knee would be best."

Right? So sweet in that setting ... and that's about it.

It's unclear who is publishing this, but Siegfield notes in his tweet to "stay tuned" for more info. In the meantime, here's one he co-wrote with Desiree Hartsock:

Desiree Hartsock's brother Nate is at it again, offering candid assessments of her love life. This time, he says his sis "settled" for fiance Chris Siegfried.

Nate Hartsock famously ruffled feathers last year when Desiree appeared on The Bachelor, bluntly taking his sibling and suitor Sean Lowe to task.

Now he's turned his sights on Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried - who he admittedly likes, but was not her first choice by any stretch of the imagination.

"Desiree went on the show because she wanted to get married so badly and she wanted the family and to have kids," Nate told Life & Style magazine.

"Obviously Chris wasn’t her first choice. I think it’s obvious she settled for him."

The Bachelorette stars Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried have been (publicly) engaged all of a week, and fans still aren't totally sold on them as a couple.

They're certainly both doing their best to change that.

Reports that they were moving in together immediately after the finale were true. They made sure everyone knew about the big move on social media!

The future Mrs. Siegfried is now a Seattle resident.

She wrote, along with pics of a going-away party: "On the road again! ;) @ChrisRSiegfried  #newchapter #roadtrips #mylove #goodbyeCali #helloSeattle."

Chris Harrison isn't being a hater. Just realistic.

When The Bachelorette star Desiree Hartsock accepted Chris Siegfried's proposal Monday on the season finale, the pair began envisioning wedding bells.

The show's host isn't sure they will be heard.

“I mean, let's be honest. What are the odds?" Harrison said of the pair's prospects. "Most relationships don't make it down the aisle. They just don't."

“We've been on a very good run lately with Ashley [Hebert] and J.P. [Rosenbaum] and I'm fully convinced Sean [Lowe] and Catherine [Giudici] will."

“But married? I don't know. The odds are no, but you never know.”

The Bachelorette's Desiree Hartsock may have pined for Brooks Forester once, but she has more positive things to say about her new fiance, Chris Siegfried.

That's putting it mildly.

Asked what she loves about Chris, she said, "Everything. I mean, honestly. [He's] supportive, manly, romantic. I really think he's an overall well-rounded person."

"He's so good at everything. Really. I can't think of one bad thing to say about him."

It was a turbulent season marked by surprising exits, shady characters and botched spoilers, but The Bachelorette Desiree Hartsock is now engaged.

And she couldn't be happier about her final rose recipient, Chris Siegfried.

"I truly believe things happen for a reason," she says. "I have no regrets."

The duo had an interesting approach for dealing with the season as it aired.

Not wanting to reopen old wounds, Chris Siegfried revealed in an interview this week that he did not watch any of The Bachelorette scenes that he wasn't in.

He hasn't even seen her epic Brooks Forester breakup, in other words.

Desiree Hartsock cannot stop gushing about Chris Siegfried.

Monday night, on the ninth season finale of The Bachelorette, he put a ring on it and erased any notion that she was still hung up on Brooks Forester.

While it shocked Reality Steve and anyone who read The Bachelorette spoilers or paid any attention to the whole season, there was no doubt in her mind.

"I was given a rare and beautiful opportunity to find true and lasting love - and I found it with Chris," she reflects. "The moments we shared will last a lifetime."

"To have Chris meet my family was one of the happiest days of my life. I didn't just introduce my family to Chris - I introduced them to the man of my dreams."

"The proposal from Chris was one of the defining moments of my life."

Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried got engaged on last night's Bachelorette season finale, to the surprise of nearly every fan of the ABC reality hit.

Regardless of whether you read Bachelorette spoilers or not, it was hard to see Desiree bouncing back from her breakup with Brooks Forester. At all.

But she did, and said that her feelings for Brooks blinded her to the fact that Mr. Right was right in front of her all this time. And he is Chris Siegfried.

Brooks left Des so shell-shocked that a proposal from Chris or Drew Kenney seemed extremely unlikely. If anything, many predicted a Brooks return.

Didn't happen.

Drew was sent home rather abruptly, but Des felt something different with Chris, and gradually she came around to the idea of marrying him, too.

Will it happen? Can a man seen by many as her second choice truly become her first - for life? Share your predictions in the comments and vote below:
