Lauren Bushnell and Ben Higgins are still together ... for now.
As with any couple in Bachelor Nation, there have been conflicting reports about the state of their relationship for quite some time. Some fans even thought they were finished with one another.
Now, Bushnell has taken to Instagram to wish Ben a happy birthday in a somewhat revealing post.
“Happy birthday babe!!!!!” she captioned the below picture.
“I’m so thankful for this life together. Although sometimes rocky you always hold my hand and support me through it, always with a smile on your face. You deserve the world, especially today. 🍾💕.”
So, does this mean things are good for The Bachelor duo?
It certainly seems like it. One would think that Bushnell would not bother even wishing her man a happy birthday if their relationship was as volatile as US Weekly would like the world to believe.
That US Weekly post prompted Ben to hit up social media to trash the site for the fake news.
“No need to respond often to rumors or ‘fake news’ but the feeling I have in this picture is the same feeling I have for this girl today. We have entered into a world where rumors will exist we know that, but just know as @laurenbushnell celebrates her birthday tomorrow I am still extremely lucky to be able to share life with her and be by her side.”
It must be tough with all of the rumors, but their reality show, Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After certainly seemed to cast a dark cloud on the couple.
After being engaged when Ben chose Lauren as his woman on the season finale of The Bachelor, they called it off when they worried they were not in the relationship for the right reasons.
As you probably know, Bachelor Nation couples have a knack for making a tidy sum of money from endorsements and magazine deals.
If there's an easy avenue to make some money, then why not?
While there's no word yet on whether their Freeform reality series will return for another season, the couple's fate is probably in limbo until word on a renewal comes out.
They probably want to keep most of their drama for the cameras.
