While Clare was rocking her diamond engagement ring, Dale was reportedly noticeably sporting a matching dark wedding band.
And on Monday, Clare was shown wearing a dark wedding band and her engagement ring on her left ring finger in a photo Dale had shared of the couple celebrating the Fourth of July on his Instagram account.
Dale was also spotted wearing a thick black band in a May photo of the couple vacationing in Hawaii together on Instagram, not long after he and Clare chose to get back together following a brief split in January.
However, a source confirmed toUs Weekly that the Season 16 The Bachelorette couple is not married yet and are only still engaged for the time being.
"They're engaged but still are working on building a solid relationship. They've discussed future plans but aren't necessarily wedding planning. They aren't rushing to tie the knot," the source said.
Although Clare has been proudly displaying her engagement ring for over a month now, the source explained, "They're still working on some issues they have to overcome... They're more private when it comes to their issues."
"The good thing is that they're happy together and enjoying this time as an engaged couple," the insider added. "They love each other very much and care for each other."
Dale is reportedly currently moving into a new place in New York City and Clare has been helping him with the move.
The Us insider said Clare and Dale have plans to travel this summer but Clare intends to keep her home in Sacramento, CA, since she "still takes care of her mom and her sisters live there."
After Dale and Clare announced their breakup in January, the duo were photographed holding hands and going on dates in February, and subsequent hangout sessions continued to raise eyebrows and spark reconciliation rumors.
Dale appeared to confirm he got back together with Clare on April 7 when he posted a mirror selfie of the couple drinking coffee together on Instagram Stories, and they've seemingly been inseparable ever since.
"Clare and Dale took things really slowly when they got back together. They wanted to make sure they were on the same page," a source told People earlier this week. "They care so much about each other."
Clare and Dale initially ended their engagement because they reportedly weren't on the same page about marriage and children.
During a recent appearance on the Hollywood Raw podcast with Dax Holt and Adam Glyn, Dale shared, "We're just living life and we're doing it and being present with one another. It's been great to go about it that way."
Dale also denied ever cheating on Clare given "short-lived" rumors circulated earlier this year he had been unfaithful to The Bachelorette alum following their engagement and that played a big role in their breakup.
"That was never a conversation, even when we went through our split. It wasn't even a thing. You really have to look past that and focus on one another. I mean, that sucked," Dale said on the podcast.
"When things are going at your character, and something you're completely against, those are the hardest things to handle."
Clare's journey on The Bachelorette's sixteenth season in 2020 ended prematurely after about two weeks. Producers planned a steamy overnight date for the couple and then Dale proposed marriage seemingly the next day.
When Chris asked what was next for the couple, Clare immediately shouted, "Babies!"
But Dale noted he'd like to get married before welcoming children.
"I've never been afraid of commitment," Dale told People in a joint interview with Clare last year.
"And when I met Clare, I knew I was all in. She lights a fire in me that I was missing for so long."
But on January 19, Dale announced he and Clare had decided to split and arrived at "the healthiest decision" for the "both" of them, but then Clare revealed two days later she had been blindsided by Dale's public statement.
Clare wrote on Instagram, "I was made aware of a 'mutual' statement at the same time you all were, so I've needed some time to really digest this."
Clare admitted she was "crushed" by the breakup given her intentions to settle down with Dale and start a family had "always been very clear."
The Season 16 The Bachelorette star added that she had been "genuinely invested with all of [her] heart" into Dale and their relationship, although it "was not perfect."
Multiple sources had described Dale as a "fame-seeker" in the wake of his split from Clare, according to E! News.
"[Dale] doesn't want to give up the party life. He loves the NYC scene," a source told E! News earlier this year. "His partying would be a problem in their relationship and would cause many fights."
And the E! News source noted of Clare, "She just wants to get married, settle down and have children. They were on complete different pages."
Dale insisted on his Instagram Stories at the time that the split "didn't come out of nowhere" and he was struggling to move on, according to Us.
"I love Clare and respect Clare enough to let her know how I feel, even if that's against the expectations of everybody else, and it's gonna take time," Dale reportedly shared on January 25.
"I wanted nothing more than to make this relationship work, and I put my heart and soul into it each and every day. And I wanted nothing more than to build a healthy relationship."
Dale subsequently broke down to his followers in an Instagram video and said he was "hurting."
"This has f-cking rocked me. I felt so many emotions, so much guilt, but also so much confusion, so much hurt, and I know that we both have... But the reality of it is, life isn't perfect," Dale reportedly lamented, on the verge of tears.
"And we make mistakes. I've made a lot of them, I know we all do. My pops would always say you gotta hurt before you heal. I've been f-cking hurting. A lot."
