After Becca Kufrin broke up with Thomas Jacobs on Bachelor in Paradise Season 7 last summer, fans were bummed that the couple didn’t last.
However, that changed once they got back together and started back up their relationship when they got back home.
As their relationship has blossomed and thrived, Thomas and Becca have been open and real when it came to talking about an engagement. One of the major reasons is that Becca has already been engaged twice through the Bachelor franchise.
She had made it clear to Thomas her stipulations, and Thomas respected her wishes when asked about a proposal and potential engagement on podcasts and social media. But now the time that Bachelor Nation fans have been waiting for has finally come to fruition.
The plot twist? Becca was the one who proposed to Thomas!
Is the third time a charm for Becca Kufrin?
Becca Kufrin is now engaged for the third time, and hopefully for the last as fans love her relationship with Thomas.
He posted five photos on his Instagram account as they showed their love, rings, and smiles for the camera as they celebrated their engagement.
Thomas captioned his post and said, “The ultimate UNO reverse card / power move. You keeping me on my toes for a lifetime has a great ring to it. Cheers to forever Boops #Fiance.”
