"This man. From the time I met him last year in Mexico I thought to myself he is hot -- and would make such a good husband from all the good energy I felt from his heart. I didn't think much more of it because I lived in San Diego and he lived in Nashville," wrote Juelia, who competed for Chris Soules' heart on Season 19 of The Bachelor in 2015 before appearing on Season 2 of Bachelor in Paradise later that year.

"Little did I know he was going to come visit me and little did I know I would feel sick to my stomach when he left to go back home."

"I knew I hadn't felt that special or that close to someone in pretty much ever, and had no idea how it would work out. I am so happy that our relationship not only developed so much over the next couple months, but flourished."

Juelia confessed trying to make a long-distance relationship work was "hard," but they knew what they wanted and "went through the ups and downs" together.

"We made it here... stronger and happier than ever. I am so excited to say... WE ARE ENGAGED!!!!!!" Juelia gushed in her post.

"He is the best man I could ask for and my best friend... not to mention he makes me laugh till my stomach hurts every morning and every day. I never would have expected we would have met like we did but I am so freaking grateful that we did. I love you @theaaronbass!! Thank you for making me the luckiest girl in the world!!"

Evan congratulated the bride and groom-to-be on social media following Juelia's sweet announcement.

"So so happy for my brother getting engaged to this incredible woman," tweeted Evan, who has one child with Carly, who also competed on The Bachelor 19 with Juelia.

"These 2 snuck away to the beach after meeting at our wedding and then a little over a year later they sneak back to Mexico to get engaged!! Congrats @theaaronbass and @jueliakinney !!!"

Juelia has been looking for a happily-ever-after relationship ever since her late husband committed suicide in 2013. The pair had been married for three years and welcomed a daughter Ireland together, now 5, before Dustin Kinney sadly decided to take his own life.

Based on photos on social media, Ireland and Aaron appear to have a very special, loving relationship, and he has fully embraced his new father-figure role.

Prior to meeting Aaron, Juelia dated The Bachelorette's JJ Lane in 2016, and the couple attempted to hash out their issues on the ninth season of Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars.

However, JJ made a couple of shocking confessions on the series that led to the demise of their romance.
