"It was the happiest moment of my life. And it feels so good to say it. I still pinch myself, like, did that all just happen? It's been a whirlwind."
A whirlwind indeed. Less than five months ago, Becca had a different diamond ring on her finger, planning to marry Arie.
But shortly before The Bachelor's 22nd season premiered on ABC, Arie broke the news to Becca he was still in love with the runner-up, Lauren Burnham. Arie therefore called off their engagement and they split in January 2018.
Seemingly only days later, Arie and Lauren reconciled, and the pair later got engaged on The Bachelor: After the Final Rose in March. They are currently living together in Arizona.
"I went through the grieving process," Becca said of her split from Arie. "I was confused and angry and all the emotions you go through a heartbreak with."
Despite how fast things have been moving in recent months and the roller coaster Becca has been on, she apparently felt completely ready to meet the man of her dreams on The Bachelorette.
"Yes, I fell in love and we were engaged," Becca said of the pro racing driver. "But that ended. And I realized nothing since then changed. I still wanted to find my partner, and I wasn't going to let anything stop me."
