After 10 weeks on the show, Ashley Herbert has finally chosen her man from 25 potential suitors on "The Bachelorette".
When Ashley Herbert set out in "The Bachelorette" this season, she was hopeful to find the man of her dreams. Now, after the season finale of the show, she's found the man she wants to spend the rest of her life with.
On "The Bachelorette" finale Monday night, Ashley Herbert was proposed by two men, J.P. Rosenbaum and Ben Flajnik.
At first, Sonoma, California, winemaker Ben Flajnik, 28, proposed Ashley Herbert with heartfelt proposal in which he confessed, "Every second I spend with you makes me fall deeper in love with you. I want to thank you for allowing me to feel completely and utterly vulnerable and open with you". However, Herbert turned it down.
Though viewers thought that Herbert and Flajnik had an incredible connection, the end result turned out to be in favor of more reserved Rosenbaum.
After refusing Flajnik, Ashley Herbert waited for Rosenbaum's arrival via seaplane. Once he arrived, neither Herbert nor Rosenbaum could contain their happiness.
With a smile on his face, New York construction manager J.P. Rosenbaum, 34, said, "All the time we've spent together, it's been the happiest time of my life. And you always say to me you're smiling all the time, you're going to have wrinkles when you're older. Well, I smile because of you. You bring that out. What I do know for absolute certain is that I am madly in love with you. I love everything about you."
After sharing a passionate kiss, Ashley Herbert told him, "Today is the reason why I went through all the good times and the bad times, and I've been wanting to tell you how much I loved you for so long now. You mean the world to me and I do not want to be with anyone else forever."
Later, Rosenbaum got down on one knee and opened the pretty little black box containing a diamond Neil Lane engagement ring and asked Herbert, "Ashley, will you marry me?" Out of happiness, Ashley Herbert replied, "Yes!"
As Rosenbaum placed the ring on her finger, the two shared a passionate long kiss and continued kissing as they walked into the Fijian sunset.
The happy couple of "The Bachelorette" appeared on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" on Monday night, where 26-year-old Ashley Herbert said that they plan to marry by the end of next year, most probably the fall.
