The Bachelorette star Desiree Hartsock is reportedly still very much in love and "over the moon" with her fiance whom she selected while filming the conclusion of her season two months ago.
Hartsock is still on Cloud Nine after she got engaged on May 6 when her final suitor got down on one knee and presented her with a cushion-cut 3.5-carat Neil Lane diamond and platinum engagement ring worth $75,000, Life & Stylereported.
"Right now, Des is absolutely beside herself with happiness. She seems to have a constant smile on her face," a source told Life & Style.
"Desiree believes she made the right choice," added a Hartsock friend.
Since the proposal -- which will air during The Bachelorette's ninth-season finale on August 5 -- was filmed on Dow's Hill at the Verandah Resort & Spa on the island of Antigua, Hartsock and her man have reportedly gotten to see each other numerous times in secret.
"They get to see each other once a week," the source explained.
