Who Did 'Bachelorette' Ashley Choose?
"The 'Bachelorette" star Ashley Hebert has proudly found her Mr. Right.
Hebert had a rough time of it on the show's Season 7, weeding through 25 contestants - and having her heart stomped by bad boy Bentley Williams.
But J.P. Rosenbaum, the 34-year-old construction manager from New York, was the one who captured Hebert's heart on the season finale of "The Bachelorette."
The Madawaska, Maine, native, 26, who will soon finish dental school at the University of Pennsylvania, turned down 28-year-old winemaker Ben Flajnik's heartfelt proposal. He took it in stride, telling Hebert, "Every second I spend with you makes me fell deeper in love with you. I want to thank you for allowing me to feel completely and utterly vulnerable and open with you."
Then Hebert waited with excitement by the Fiji ocean for Rosenbaum to arrive. It was clear from the moment he stepped off the seaplane these two lovebirds were destined for one another.
"All the time we've spent together, it's been the happiest time of my life," Rosenbaum said. "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, Hebert gushed, "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."
"I'm so in love with you. You're the one. You're it," Rosenbaum said earnestly, getting down on one knee and opening the pretty little black box containing a diamond Neil Lane engagement ring. "Ashley, will you marry me?"
"Yes!" Hebert replied, bending down to kiss Rosenbaum while he placed the ring on her finger.
