Lauren Bushnell has revealed the details of how she met and fell in love with her new boyfriend Devin Antin.
During a Q&A session with fans on her Instagram account earlier this week,The Bachelor's Season 20 winner disclosed personal details, including how she met Devin on a popular dating app.
"So, two years ago we met on Tinder. Yes, Tinder," Lauren admitted to a fan in the "comments" section alongside a photo of the couple goofing around, according toUs Weekly.
Lauren and her ex-fiance Ben Higgins announced their split in May 2017 after getting engaged on The Bachelor's twentieth-season finale, which was filmed in late 2015 and aired on ABC in March 2016.
When elaborating on how her romance with Devin sparked, Lauren explained, "I don't think I've shared before but I only met up with one person from the app and it was him. We hung out for a while but more as friends but always got along really well. Fast forward two years later when I moved back to L.A. we hung out to catch up and things just kinda happened after that."
Lauren moved to Los Angeles, CA -- where she lived prior to appearing onThe Bachelor -- after her breakup with Ben. During her relationship with Ben, the pair had been living together in his Denver, CO, home.
Lauren first went public with her new relationship on Instagram in August, just a few months after calling off her engagement to Ben.
The aspiring blogger and former flight attendant also revealed to her followers on Instagram that, while she doesn't want to rush things with Devin, she could see herself marrying the real estate investor down the road.
"I do see a future with him," Lauren gushed, Us reported. "But I want to be 1000 percent sure before I get engaged and even more sure before I get married. And for me that takes time."
Lauren also said her relationship with Ben, who currently hosts a podcast with pal Ashley Iaconetti fromThe Bachelor franchise, taught her a lot about life and love.
"I've learned a lot of things in the last couple years and this is a big one. Marriage is such a special and sacred thing that should never be rushed," she insisted.
And what does Lauren love about her new man? Lauren gushed about "his laugh, how much fun I have when I'm with him and how much I can be myself, everything about him honestly."
