Ben Higgins Reacts To Lauren Bushnell’s Engagement News

This week fans of the Bachelor franchise got to experience the sweetest proposal yet. One could even say this was the sweetest proposal in all of Bachelor history.

Country singer, Chris Lane proposed to his girlfriend, former bachelor alum, Lauren Bushnell. Fans got to witness the proposal in Chris’s new song Big, Big Plans. This song as you may guess was written for Lauren.

The video for this song starts off with Chris introducing the song to Lauren and then asking her if she is okay with him playing it for her with cameras recording. The video then takes fans through a video montage of Lauren in different aspects of her life. For example, at home with Chris, on tour with Chris, at various family gatherings, etc.

As these scenes progress they are followed by lyrics such as, “she don’t know I already bought a ring. Hid it in the bottom left drawer right beside the sink. A shiny emerald diamond on a brand-new band. Asked her mama for permission and her daddy for her hand. I got some big, big plans…” The video then ends with Chris getting down on one knee and proposing.

When asked about the proposal Chris told People, “I knew she wouldn’t want some elaborate crazy proposal,” he continued. “So, I decided to keep it pretty casual. I asked her parents for different places in Portland I could potentially take her to, but after a lot of thought I decided doing it at the family cookout would be the most laid-back setting and that she’d appreciate the simplicity of me proposing to her in her parents’ backyard.”

Although everyone is excited for both Chris and Lauren many fans are left wondering what does former fiance and Bachelor star Ben Higgins have to say about all this.

Well Ben did comment on the engagement in his podcast Almost Famous, he explained, “Ultimately, we left that relationship, both of us, I think, saying, I hope life brings you a ton of joy, I don’t want you upset and alone forever. I hope you find a partner as soon as possible. I hope everything that you want in this world that’s healthy and good is given to you,’” he explained. “And that’s exactly how I feel. So ……. Lauren, congratulations!”

He continued to exclaim,“ We’re thrilled for you. You found a man that you love without any pressure and in a moment, after dating for a long time, you have said [yes] to spending your life with him and I could not be more excited for you. I want nothing but joy and everything you ever wanted that our relationship would’ve have brought you and Chris. Congratulations.”

Although, he did have one more wish for both himself and Lauren he told fans, “I hope for Lauren and myself, is that my life isn’t as closely tied to Lauren anymore. I hope that people aren’t reaching out,” he said. “I hope this is a chapter being closed completely because I don’t know Lauren anymore and my life isn’t tied to her.”

Well said Ben! I am happy to hear that he is supporting Lauren through this happy time and I congratulate Lauren and Chris on their engagement.

Meghan Markle Is Breaking Royal Tradition In More Ways Than One

The world is officially gushing over the latest royal engagement, and a lot of it has to do with the bride-to-be, Meghan Markle. A proud feminist, an American, and a celebrity in her own right, she brings a new face to the monarchy that suits Prince Harry and his youthful intricacies.

But there are some things about this couple that are breaking new ground in the way that the royals handle things.

ABC News

Clearly, Meghan is not the same as princesses past, but this minor difference has been seized upon by both contrarians and supporters to the engaged couple.

Growing up in the working class is the polar opposite of what the British royal family  could ever imagine. Meghan’s father was a lighting director, and her mother a social support worker and yoga instructor.

Meghan worked her way into show business and has now reached amazing heights, but it is definitely not the typical royal story.

All Signs Point To A Summer Wedding For Prince Harry And Meghan Markle

Are you ready for the next royal wedding? Well it looks like you won’t have to wait much longer! Start preparing yourselves for a summer wedding between Meghan Markle and Prince Harry!

In the early spring of 2016, it was announced that His Highness was dating American actress Meghan Markle. According to Markle, they had been dating for approximately six months before it was made public.

“We were very quietly dating for about six months before it became news, and I was working during that whole time, and the only thing that changed was people’s perception. Nothing about me changed. I’m still the same person that I am, and I’ve never defined myself by my relationship,” she told Vanity Fair.

It wasn’t until people starting making rude and racist comments towards Markle that the palace, and Prince Harry, released statements on the matter.

“Some of [the drama] has been hidden from the public—the nightly legal battles to keep defamatory stories out of papers; her mother having to struggle past photographers in order to get to her front door; the attempts of reporters and photographers to gain illegal entry to her home and the calls to police that followed; the substantial bribes offered by papers to her ex-boyfriend; the bombardment of nearly every friend, co-worker, and loved one in her life,” the palace wrote.

“It is not right, that a few months into a relationship with him that Ms. Markle should be subjected to such a storm,” the statement continued. “He knows commentators will say this is ‘the price she has to pay’ and that ‘this is all part of the game.’ He strongly disagrees. This is not a game—it is her life and his.”

After making their first official public appearance together at the Invictus Games in Toronto, rumors started flying about how serious the relationship between Harry and Markle is.
