After he hemmed, hawed and ultimately dispatched Becca Tilley, Whitney Bischoff and Chris Soules got engaged on The Bachelor season finale last night.
For Whitney, and for Chris, it seems like a fairy tale with a happy ending. But will it last? Or will they meet the same fate as so many other Bachelor duos?
At least right now, it seems unlikely that this union will crumble.
"She was the person I could see myself with," Soules explains. "Whitney is my soulmate. It became even more clear at the end. It just felt right."
The betrothed couple, who have communicated in secret since the finale's taping in November, and even met up in secret in Iowa, is going public.
Not a lot seems to have changed since the cameras rolled.
"I'm relieved that this is over," Bischoff says. "I'm looking forward to the life that we're going to start. I think a lot of great things are going to happen."
Like getting down to the business of procreation, ASAP.
Bischoff plans to relocate to Soules' hometown, where the pair hope to commence making babies (outside of a fertility center this time) soon. Says Chris:
"I'm ready to be a dad. I'm 33. I think I'm past due!"
While they are currently taking wedding plans "step by step," there's nothing to suggest that this pair won't ride off into the heartland sunset together.
"We had this great love story that now we get to build upon and start a new love story in real life," says Whitney Bischoff, gushing about her man as always.
The first chapter of that story? Chris Soules on Dancing With the Stars. Not exactly romantic, but hey, you gotta support your partner in life, right?
What do you think: Will Chris and Whitney last?
Even if they somehow split, the bar is set pretty low for the future Mr. and Mrs. Soules, given how most of the Bachelor's final rose winners have fared.
