Andrew Firestone will reportedly be a bachelor no more.
The 31-year-old former star of The Bachelor's third season has proposed to 29-year-old actress/model Ivana Bozilovic, Us Weekly reported in its May 7 issue. The Firestone Tire company heir has been dating the Yugoslavian-born Bozilovic for two years. According to Us, Bozilovic -- who was raised in Chicago and had a brief appearance in Wedding Crashers -- works with Firestone at his family's vineyard in Los Olivos, CA.
"[Firestone] is a lot more down-to-earth than I pictured him," Bozilovic told Us.
An "insider" all but confirmed to Us that Bozilovic accepted Firestone's marriage proposal. "In two weeks she's having a big engagement party," the insider told Us.
The aspiring actress and the rest of America were introduced to Firestone during ABC's third edition of The Bachelor in 2003. Firestone narrowed a field of 25 bachelorettes down to Jen Schefft and proposed to her in the show's season finale. However there was no marriage, and while the couple dated for several months and reportedly discussed having children together, they eventually split in December 2003. Rumors of their reconciliation began circulating in February 2004 but never materialized, as Schefft eventually starred in The Bachelorette's third season and Firestone began dating Bozilovic.
