During season 27 of “The Bachelor,” Zach Shallcross fell in love with contestant Kaity Biggar. The two got engaged during their final rose ceremony, and they have been doing great ever since their finale aired in April.
Luckily for Biggar and Shallcross, they were both already based in Austin, Texas before filming their season. That meant they did not have to date long-distance like many other franchise couples do. They kept their separate places for a few months, but in July, Biggar revealed on Instagram they had moved into their first place together. Recently, the Bachelor Nation duo hit another milestone in their relationship.
