Ali Fedotowsky of The Bachelorette fame is still together with her season’s winner, Roberto Martinez, but says they are not planning a wedding as of right now.
The 27-year-old is aware of fact that it’s been more than a year since viewers witnessed their engagement, but says they are quite content taking it slow.
“We’re still engaged and living together,” Ali said, deflecting rumors that they’re on the rocks. “We just don’t feel the need to walk down the aisle right now.”
Ali Fedotowsky says the pair is doing just fine, but that pressure to set a date following their televised courtship and engagement overwhelmed them.
Another complication: difficulty in scheduling a TV wedding.
“When we actually did have a date that worked for us [last August], I had to have knee surgery … No wedding is simple but this is even more complicated.”
“We didn’t meet in the most traditional way,” she adds. “We had a very short courtship and we only knew each other nine weeks before we got engaged.”
“We are still figuring out our lives as individuals.”
Still, she insists they’re good: “At this point we’re not planning a wedding. Does that mean we’re fighting? No. Does that mean we’re miserable? Absolutely not!”
“We’re happy where we are,” adds the morning show correspondent, now living with her beau in S.D. “When we have things figured out, we’ll let you know.”
What do you think? Will Ali and Roberto last?
