Last spring on The Bachelor, Jason Mesnick sent Molly Malaney home on an emotional season finale, popping the question to Melissa Rycroft instead.
But on the show’s “After the Final Rose” special, he famously had a change of heart, breaking up with Melissa and asking Molly for a second chance.
She was shocked, but giddily accepted.
That sums up Molly’s reaction to Jason’s most recent request as well. He asked her to marry him and she said yes. Jason and Molly are engaged!
According to People, Jason got down on one knee in New Zealand last week, the same nation where The Bachelor finale was filmed last winter.
Molly Malaney will soon be the newest Mrs. Jason Mesnick!
Since the controversial Bachelor ending, which resulted in serious backlash against Mesnick (Molly Malaney did nothing wrong, but Jason’s national TV dispatching of Melissa was scrutinized), the two have kept a very low profile.
They’ve also been doing the distance thing, with her living in Milwaukee and him in Seattle with his son, Ty, from his first marriage to ex-wife Hillary.
But we suspect they’ll be moving in together, likely in Seattle, quite soon, now that Jason Mesnick has officially asked for Molly’s hand in marriage.
The couple just returned on vacation to the site of Jason’s ill-fated first choice so that “Jason can do what he should have done in the last time he was here, and ask Molly to marry him,” says a source close to the lovebirds.
