It's official: Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell  will do more than just televise their wedding.

They will televise their entire lives!

In a first for this beloved ABC franchise, Higgins and Bushnell have agreed to star in a spinoff, announcing today that Freeform will soon air a program titled "Ben And Lauren: Happily Ever After."

The Bachelor has already led to Bachelor in Paradise... while, technically, The Bachelorette is also a follow-up to the original.

But this is the first time a couple formed on the reality show will star in their very own series.

What is the motivation for having cameras chronicle their relationship?

“After you walk away from The Bachelor, it’s not like your life becomes private," Higgins tells Us Weekly. "People still find out what you’re doing, so it’s not changing our life to be public."

Bushnell adds:

“We’re already used to sharing our lives with everyone else, so we thought, ‘Why not?’ It’s a fun way to share life after The Bachelor.”

We're somehow guessing that a sizable paycheck doesn't hurt matters, either.

Ben And Lauren: Happily Ever After will be filmed in Denver this summer and air some time this fall.

The pair met and fell in love on the latest season of The Bachelor, which ended with Higgins asking for Bushnell's hand in marriage.

Since then, Bushnell has moved into Ben's Colorado home and Higgins has considered a run for Congress.

If he chooses to run, expect that journey to be a major storyline on his upcoming show.

You can go watch The Bachelor online in order to relive the ways in which this tandem fell for each other... and then you can sound off:

Will you tune in for their spinoff?

The Bachelor Quotes

There’s still a lot of growing to do in our relationship. We will not tie the knot until I am mentally and physically prepared as well as Matt.

It was a fairytale proposal like I’ve always dreamed about. I forgot that there [were] cameras around. In that moment, it was just Matt and I and it was the most amazing moment of my entire life.
