Kaitlyn Said She ‘Blacked out’ During the Proposal
Kaitlyn opened up about her engagement in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. The article ran about 30 minutes before the bride-and-groom-to-be posted on their respective social media accounts.
The “Dancing With the Stars” champion told the outlet that she is simply thrilled to be engaged to Jason, and she spilled all about the moment that he proposed.
“It was everything I could have asked for. The words that came out of his mouth were insanely beautiful. We’ve never locked eyes like that in our lives. We were holding hands, so intense, and I was listening to his every word, but still blacked out,” Kaitlyn told Entertainment Tonight.
In many of the photos that Kaitlyn shared, she is seen staring at her new ring, which appears to be — at the very least — three carats and an oval cut. Details about the ring weren’t immediately made available, but Kaitlyn previously shared that she had picked out a ring that she liked during an Instagram Live Q&A.
“Have you picked out a ring yet with Jason?” a fan asked. According to the Bachelor Nation website, Kaitlyn nodded in response.
Kaitlyn Recently Opened up About Hoping to Get Engaged
In an interview with Hollywood Life, Kaitlyn discussed a possible engagement to Jason. She was asked if she thought an engagement was on the horizon, to which she responded, “I don’t know, and I hope I don’t know because I want it to be a complete surprise.”
“With Jason being traditional, I know he was like, ‘I want to talk to your dad,’ and my dad’s in Canada,” she explained, adding that Jason would have to get creative in asking her dad’s permission due to the travel restrictions put into place because of the coronavirus pandemic.
“I don’t want to know when it’s happening,” Kaitlyn said, adding “I’m definitely not the kind of person to put pressure on it because I would never want somebody to propose to me out of pressure… we are just in such a good place in our relationship that it could be any day. I’m not sure.”
