Relationships move fast on The Bachelor, and so did Kaitlyn Bristowe and Jason Tartick's outside of the show. To recap: the Bachelorette alums first became friends in October 2018, and just a few months later, they confirmed their "friendship turned into a relationship" during a joint January 2019 appearance on the Today show. it wasn't long into their relationship before Jason moved in with Kaitlyn, relocating from Seattle to her Nashville home that May. The pair also got what Jason called a "crash course" in parenting when they rescued a golden retriever named Ramen Noodle Vino (or "Noods," for short) the same month. In December 2019, the couple expanded their family again by adopting a second golden retriever, Pinot.

"I didn't realize a relationship could be this easy and that I could be this happy with somebody," Kaitlyn, who was previously engaged to Shawn Booth, explained to Entertainment Tonight in June 2019. "We just have a really healthy relationship, healthy communication, and we build each other up."

The couple got engaged in May 2021, and nearly a year later, they told E! News that a wedding (and maybe more) is imminent. “Hopefully wedding, hopefully babies [are next],” Kaitlyn said in a March 2022 interview. “I want to keep growing my businesses. My dream vision board probably [is] host Dancing With the Stars and have babies.”

Jason also pointed out that a psychic told Kaitlyn “that [her] baby is close,” suggesting parenthood could be in the near future.

Kaitlyn has long been open about her desire to be a mom, sharing her plans with Entertainment Tonight in 2019. “Three does sound nice, but I know that probably won't happen,” she said. “I mean, I'm fine with one or two. I used to want five [kids], but now I'm like, 'OK, I'm turning 34 tomorrow,' and I'm like, ‘You know what? One would be great!’”

At the time, Kaitlyn and Jason weren’t engaged yet, but they had discussed marriage, even going so far as to toss around some tentative wedding plans. Kaitlyn also already knew what kind of engagement ring she wanted: a "simple band with a fatty rock" that's either square or round. "I just want something that can make my hands a little cuter," she joked to ET.

In October 2019, Jason revealed to Us Weekly that Kaitlyn told him she has two engagement ring rules: "No double halo. No Neil Lane." (Neil Lane, of course, is the Bachelor franchise's go-to jeweler and the designer of her engagement ring from Shawn.) Kaitlyn added that she also doesn't want Jason to propose on the Jumbotron.

According to her May 11, 2021, Instagram post revealing her massive engagement ring, it looks like Jason took all of her notes into consideration and proposed with a beautiful oval-shaped diamond. In her caption, Kaitlyn simply wrote, “Don’t pinch me.” Though she didn’t reveal any more details about how he proposed right away, it initially looked like Jason might’ve got down on one knee during a podcast episode, judging by the mic in his hand and the laptop nearby — and as a TikTok from Jason proved, the surprise did, in fact, happen while recording.
