“Bachelor in Paradise” stars Raven Gates, 27, and Adam Gottschalk, 29, are taking the next step in their relationship!
Over the weekend, the couple announced they are engaged.
Three days after Adam popped the question at the W Hotel in Dallas, Raven wrote on Instagram, “I’m keeping you forever and for always We will be together all of our days Wanna wake up every morning to your sweet face… Always.”
Adam shared his own engagement photos, writing, “5.31.19 #Engaged 💍.”
The pair captured the romantic rooftop proposal with the help of photographer Courtney Matthews, who wrote, “So many secrets, so many plans, so much love for you both. 💜.”
After hearing the happy news, many Bachelor Nation favorites congratulated the couple, including Kaitlyn Bristowe and Joelle Fletcher. Kaitlyn wrote, “Omgomgomg YES love this and love you two.”
Joelle added, “Yay!!! So happy for you guys!”
Arie Luyendyk Jr., who just became a dad to daughter Alessi with wife Lauren Burnham, commented on Raven’s post, “Adam did good on that ring.”
Earlier this year, Raven gushed about love on Instagram, writing, “I never thought I’d have a love like this 💕 Happy 2019 — update: Thank you guys for all of your kind words and comments! Hope you have the best & most fulfilling year of your lives!💕.”
The couple started dating on the fourth season of “Bachelor in Paradise.” In 2017, Gates revealed when she knew she was in love with Gottschalk, posting on Instagram, “I knew I was gonna keep Adam around the first weekend we spent together outside of paradise.”
She added, “We met in Memphis & had a blast that weekend (after the initial awkward moment we realized okay this isn’t paradise anymore.. this is our REAL lives.) & the morning after a night of dinner, drinking & dancing Adam had put my phone on the charger, left a glass of water by my bed, food & an Advil (hah!).”
A year later, Raven played coy about a possible engagement on “The Morning Toast.” She said, “I don’t know, maybe, maybe.”
She shared about their life in Dallas, “I’m really obsessed with Adam. I’m just really happy to be with him. I really do feel, like, butterflies talking about him. He at first was, like, so obsessed with me, and now I’m so obsessed with him. I’m calling him from work, like, ‘When are you coming home? Are you home yet? Can you come home early?’”
At the time, a source told Us Weekly, “People close to them wouldn’t be surprised if they get engaged sometime in the summer or around 'Paradise' Season 5!”
The engagement happened two months before the sixth season will premiere!
