Tia Booth says ‘true love’ motivated Taylor Mock’s proposal

Tia Booth took to her Instagram stories for a pregnancy AMA.

One fan asked about her fiance’s decision to propose, questioning, “Do you think he would have proposed if it wasn’t a shotgun situation?”

Tia clarified, “He proposed *before* so it’s obviously true love ok?”

Answering in her video as well, Tia explained that she and Taylor got engaged before knowing they were pregnant.

In fact, Tia shared that the two found out they were expecting just nine days after the proposal when Taylor surprised her during The Bachelor: Live On Stage. According to Tia, pregnancy did not motivate their desire to be married.

Tia Booth slams misleading pregnancy headlines 

With the news of her engagement and pregnancy, Tia has been making headlines a lot lately. 

As Monsters and Critics reported, Tia recently called out news sites for misconstrued headlines surrounding her pregnancy. 

Several headlines suggested that Tia was unhappy with becoming pregnant because it was unplanned. 

However, Tia set the record straight by sharing that while the pregnancy was unexpected and unplanned, she and Taylor are thrilled to be expanding their family. 

Other details Tia shared during her pregnancy AMA included revealing that she knows the gender of her baby but is waiting to announce it, and her pregnancy cravings include pizza of all kinds. 

Tia is expected to give birth on December 23, just before Christmas, and she has enjoyed bringing her followers along on her pregnancy journey. 

Bachelor in Paradise premieres Tuesday, September 27, on ABC.
