Three years after they got engaged on national television, JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers still have not walked down the aisle.
But that doesn’t mean the couple isn’t serious about doing so.
In fact, based on the photo and explanatory caption below… they seem more serious than ever!
On Sunday, both Rogers and the woman whose heart he won over on The Bachelorette posted this picture and wrote about the basis for that ENORMOUS new rock on Fletcher’s finger.
“I love @joelle_fletcher with all my heart!! I always wanted to re-propose, with no cameras, no producers, no drama…just us,” Rogers detailed in his caption.
He added yesterday;
“Our first engagement was so real, and meant so much to us both, but as we start to actually plan our wedding for next year I wanted to do it all over again, OUR WAY!
"So I bought a new ring, made a plan (that almost fell apart multiple times), and got down on one knee all over again.”
The first engagement to which Jordan refers here is, of course, when he popped the big question to JoJo on the finale of her Bachelorette season.
He did so at the time using a ring provided to him by ABC, which may also explain his desire now to go out and purchase his own diamond for Fletcher.
“This time it was simple: Joelle is the love of my life, she is my rock, she is the funniest, strongest, and sweetest person I have ever known,” Jordan continued in his post.
“The first time around I fell in love with a lot of what you all love about JoJo. But this time around I got on one knee and vowed to honor and protect her heart, which is the greatest part of her.
"She loves her family, her friends, me, and complete strangers with the most pure love a human can give. And THAT is what I love most about her most. How she treats people, how she loves people, and how she makes me a better man.
"And that is what I will always love, cherish, and protect the most!”
Leave some nice words for the rest of us too utter, sheesh.
How did Fletcher react to this second proposal?
In very positive fashion!
"Wow… ok excuse the novel I’m about to write," she wrote to open her own lengthy caption yesterday, continuing as follows:
"I thought we were just wedding venue searching this weekend but BOY WAS I WRONG. I don’t even know where to start.
"3 years ago we got engaged in a way that some, if not all, would say is crazy and totally unconventional. & They were right. It was. But it was also very real.
"We took a leap of faith that day and hoped/prayed things would work out how we wanted them to. Times were not always easy… they actually got very very hard early on, but we stuck by each other and worked every day towards our relationship."
Fletcher assured followers that she still has her original ring, but that she was totally shocked when her fiance gave her a new one.
This is what she wrote about it:
Yesterday, Jordan asking me to marry him… again!! I didn’t see it coming nor ever expected it… I can’t put into words how much it meant to me @jrodgers11 … but I think you know by now from me balling hysterically and totally blacking out.
The show brought us together and set us up for a truly amazing proposal the first time around, but this time was all YOU.
And that means everything and more to me. I can’t wait to marry you! Thank you for loving me so purely and protecting my heart in a way I always used to pray for.
In adorable conclusion?
"Sorry everyone for rambling," Jojo wrote. "I don’t even know if what I just said made sense or not, currently crying typing this. Ok bye."
Rogers and Fletcher will be getting married in California next year, but they are yet to select a venue.
We wish them nothing but the best.
