Becca Kufrin Confirms: I'm Engaged!!!!!!!

by at .

It's official, folks:

Becca Kufrin has done the damn thing.


The Minnesota-based publicist - who was VERY rudely dumped by The Bachelor’s Arie Luyendyk Jr. on a televised breakup special this spring - tells the latest issue of People Magazine that she's over that embarrassing incident.

Like, way, way, way over it.

And for a very good reason, too:


“It was the happiest moment of my life," Becca gushes to People, clearly over the proverbial moon when it comes to this exciting news,

She adds:

"And it feels so good to say it. I still pinch myself, like, did that all just happen? It’s been a whirlwind.”

That really is quite the understatement.

Becca accepted Arie's proposal on the latest season finale of The Bachelor... only to then have him end their engagement on the After the Rose special.

As ABC cameras rolled the entire time!

She has since taken the extremely high road, telling multiple outlets that she doesn't believe Arie is a bad person; he just did a dumb and insensitive thing.

"Once I got past the initial heartbreak, at the end of the day the show is about finding love," Becca said shortly after being named The Bachelorette in March, adding:

"I have so much love to give, so hard yes [to being The Bachelorette] all around."

This isn't too say that everything has been a breeze for Becca, of course.

Following the split, “I went through the grieving process,” she explains to People. “I was confused and angry and all the emotions you go through a heartbreak with."

Well, sure. She'd be almost inhuman if she did not.

As for the lucky man to whom she's now engaged?

Was it challenging for Becca to go straight from The Bachelor to The Bachelorette? Yes, to some extent.

“I fell in love and we were engaged,” she says of Luyendyk Jr., being as candid as she can be.

“But that ended," she adds. "And I realized nothing since then changed. I still wanted to find my partner, and I wasn’t going to let anything stop me.”

Nor has she, that much is clear.

Kufrin will be focused on finding her match this season, which kicks off on May 28 at 8/7c on ABC.

She says her engagement ring is "very beautiful" and that she wouldn't really change any aspects of this adventure in the end.

“I’m so excited to start this season and for everyone to see everything that happened. It’s been crazy, but it was so worth it.”
