The Bachelor’s 2019 season came to a close with Colton Underwood finally experiencing what it’s like to be inside a woman.
But what’s going on in his head in terms of his future with Cassie Randolph, and how will that change in the months ahead?
Will they be a new golden couple for the show, a la Trista and Ryan, Ashley and J.P., Jason and Molly, or Desiree and Chris?
Or just a collossal bust, a la Juan Pablo and Nikki Ferrell, Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray, Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi?
Perhaps somewhere in the middle.
Some recent franchise pairings weren’t given much of a chance at the onset, but are still together after a year or more.
At least so far, Rachel and Bryan, JoJo and Jordan, Becca and Garrett, and Arie and Lauren all have the last laugh.
As for the new Bachelorette, Hannah Brown, The Bachelorette spoilers suggest she’s got her eye on one man in particular.
Who is he? That we’ll have to wait and see about on the Bachelorette premiere. But as for those who have come before her:
Who is still living happily ever after?
Take a look at notable duos from The Bachelor and Bachelorette and see whether they’re still together since the show:
1. Colton Underwood and Cassie Randolph
2. Becca Kufrin and Garrett Yrigoyen
3. Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham
4. Rachel Lindsay and Bryan Abasolo
5. Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi
6. JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers
Alex Rodriguez is used to hitting home runs, having power 696 balls over the fence during his Major League Baseball career.
But he really hit one out of the park earlier this month.
That’s when Rodriguez proposed to Jennifer Lopez and the singer/actress/all-around-goddess replied with one simple, albeit hugely meaningful, syllable:
Indeed, the mega famous andÂ ultra wealthy couple is now engaged.
And they’ve spent the two weeks since this announcement basking in each other’s hotness, while also gushing over each other on social media.
“A soulmate isnâ€™t someone who completes you. No, a soulmate is someone who inspires you to complete yourself,” shared Rodriguez the day Lopez agreed to be his wife, posting a quote online that also reads:
“A soulmate is someone who loves you with so much conviction, and so much heart, that it is nearly impossible to doubt just how capable you are of becoming exactly who you have always wanted to be.”
Who knew he was such a romantic, right?
This past weekend, meanwhile, Rodriguez posted the first photo we published above on his Instagram account and praised his fiancee’s acting ability in the caption.
“This beautiful woman starts shooting her movie tomorrow, ‘Hustlers,'” he began. “I won’t play spoiler, but I can’t wait until you all see how she transforms herself into a completely different character!!”
Adds the long-time steroid user:
“She’s been working so hard lately. I’m glad we were able to enjoy a quick little break before she dives into this new project. Love you baby and continue to shine, fly high and inspire all of us.”
Lopez, for her part, has also appeared quite smitten with Rodriguez.
She has shared a couple photos from his proposal and she’s seemingly brushed off claims that he’s been cheating on her.
So, everything is all good, right?
You can practically hear the wedding bells ringing already, can’t you?
Maybe, some followers believe.
Maybe not, others counter.
Rodriguez, for example, loves to play the field.
We don’t mean this in a baseball sense, even though he won a pair of Gold Gloves over the course of his tainted career.
We mean it in the sense that, ever since his divorce in 2008, the legendary slugger has gone to bed with Torrie Wilson, Cameron Diaz and Kate Hudson, just to name a few beautiful women.
Some might say he found the literal most beautiful woman in Jennifer Lopez and he’ll therefore be satisfied and settle down.
But Rodriguez was not an honest baseball player, serving lengthy suspensions for performance-enhancing drugs and lying multiple times about his experience with these substances.
So who’s to say he’ll be an honest lover?
Lopez, meanwhile, has been married three times.
Which is totally and completely fine. Zero judgment here.
You just get the sense that she’s maybe more in love with the idea of being in love and desperate to finally make a union work.
We mean, let’s be honest, Rodriguez came across like a total tool during his days on the diamond. It’s hard to imagine he’s changed all that much simply because he gave J. Lo a giant diamond.
To be clear, we’re rooting for these stars to make it.
We’d never actively cheer for anyone to break-up.
We just have a few questions and many doubts.

Jennifer Lopez doesn’t seem to care that Alex Rodriguez may have had multiple women down on their knees in front of him over the past several months.
Because the former Major League Baseball player and ongoing alleged cheater got down on one knee himself this past weekend.
Indeed, days afterÂ Rodriguez proposed to Lopez and announced to the world that “she said yes,” the singer/actress has shared a few photos from the special moment on her Instagram page.
It’s almost as if the whole thing was staged and actually NOT a surprise in any way, shape or form.
The beautiful images were snapped during sunset while Rodriguez and Lopez were on vacation in the Bahamas.
As you can see above and below, both superstars are dressed impeccably, with Rodriguez hilariously rocking the 2009 World Series ring he won as a member of the New York Yankees.
According to online estimates, the diamond presented here is worth around $5 million.
â€œLocking it down. #futuremrsrodriguezthis Rodriguez captioned his Instagram post on Tuesday, which featured these same snapshots.
The famous couple began dating on February 3, 2017 and have legitimately seemed very much in love ever since.
HOWEVER, shortly after news of their engagement went viral, Jose Canseco took a pretty hard shot at his fellow former steroid user.
The polarizing ex-Oakland Athletics slugger stated very plainly on Twitter that Rodriguez was carrying on an affair with Canseco’s ex-wife.
â€œWatching World of Dance watching J.Lo text Alex Rodriguez little does she know that he is cheating on her with my ex-wife Jessica poor girl she has no idea who he really is,â€� Canseco wrote.
He then added:
â€œI was there a few months back with her when he called her on her phone.”
Canseco, for whatever it may be worth, was the same person who was maligned way back in the day when he wrote a book in which he claimed tons of Major League Baseball players took performance-enhancing drugs.
He turned out to be correct, of course.
Elsewhere, a random fitness model named Lauren Hunter told The National Enquirer last year that she was also sleeping with A-Rod during his relationship with Lopez.
She complimented Rodriguez on his sexual prowess and penis size and said their affair ended in May of 2017, about three months after he started to give it to J-Lo.
“He told me he loved me, and he’s loved me for a long time,” she told the Enquirer.
None of these rumors appear to have dampened Rodriguez’s mood, though.
Not when, to use his own words, he just locked down one of the world’s most breathtaking human beings.
Rodriguez went ahead and opened up about their engagement in his Instagram story on Tuesday.
â€œThere arenâ€™t many words to share with you, only feelings. Gratitude. Excitement. And just â€¦ joy,â€� he wrote alongside a photo from the proposal in which heâ€™s kissing Lopezâ€™s forehead.
â€œWe know there is work to do to keep building a family and future we can be proud of, and we canâ€™t do it without all of you.
“We are so thankful for all your messages of love and congratulations.â€�
Do you think Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez will last?
Alex Rodriguez ended his Major League Baseball career with 696 home runs.
But the polarizing third basement saved his biggest swing for Saturday night…
… when he aimed for the fences with Jennifer Lopez and connected!
On an agreement to become husband and wife!
That’s right, readers,Â Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez are engaged! To be married!
Both superstars shared the enormous news at the same time posing a photo of the gigantic rock Rodriguez gifted to Lopez on Instagram.
â€œShe said yes,â€� captioned the image, which featured the diamond on his bride-to-be’s finger, while J. Lo published the same snapshot along withÂ including eight black heart emojis in her caption.
Prepare yourselves to be blown away — but here’s an up-close look at the rock in question:
According to a People Magazine insider, Rodriguez popped the life-altering question during a vacation in the Bahamas.
He also did so afterÂ posted a quote on his Instagram Story defining a soulmate.
It reads as follows:
A soulmate isnâ€™t someone who completes you. No, a soulmate is someone who inspires you to complete yourself.
A soulmate is someone who loves you with so much conviction, and so much heart, that it is nearly impossible to doubt just how capable you are of becoming exactly who you have always wanted to be.
Who knewÂ Alex Rodriguez was such a romantic, huh?
The happy news comes nearly seven weeks after the couple celebrated its two-year anniversary on February 3.
Back when they first got together, most observers assumed this would be a mere fling between two very rich and attractive people with an extensive dating history.
But they actually have proven to support each other at all times in public and the feelings have seemed quite real for awhile now.
â€œYou make my world a more beautiful safe and stable place â€¦ in the midst of our ever-changing, ever moving life,â€� Lopez wrote in part of a touching Instagram post to celebrate the two-year mark.
Added Rodriguez in his own message at the time:
“We are meant to be, and how much you mean to me cannot be put into words.”
Rodriguez was previously married to Cynthia Scurtis.
They divorced in 2008 after six years of marriage and share two kids, Natasha, 14, and Ella, 10.
Lopez, meanwhile, was previously married to Ojani Noa, Chris Judd AND Marc Anthony. She shares twins Max and Emme, 11, with Anthony, who she divorced in 2014.
Yes, that’s three marriages — but Lopez has said in the past she would still be open to a fourth.
â€œI do believe in marriage,â€� she told Harper’s Bazaar a year ago. â€œAnd I would love to grow old with somebody in a committed relationship.
“But Iâ€™m not forcing anything right now.â€�
As for A. Rod? She told this same magazine in this same interview:
“Itâ€™s good, itâ€™s healthy; we communicate well. We understand each otherâ€™s lives in a way that most other people couldnâ€™t.”
CONGRATS TO THE HAPPY COUPLE!
Hooray! Yipee! Congratulations!
All of this praise is finally due to Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott because the superstar couple has at least agreed to marry.
How exciting, right?!?
Granted, neither Jenner nor Scott has confirmed this development.
Nor has anyone in Jenner’s family nor anyone in Scott’s camp.
But still. Kylie has shared a new picture on her Instagram Story and we’re convinced it’s of a diamond engagement ring.
As you can see below, the image features Jenner’s left hand on the steering wheel and a pretty huge rock taking up a sizable portion of her finger.
She included a timestamp, showing that the photo was taken at 8:18 a.m., and the caption reads: “two cover shoots on this fine Sunday.”
To be fair, this is not the first time Jenner has rocked a diamond ring that resulted in her fans wondering if Scott finally popped the life-altering question.Â
Heck, just a few weeks ago, we wondered whether Kylie was engaged AND pregnant.
How else were we to respond after Jenner posted the picture below of her and Scott and even wrote along with it,Â baby #2?
It’s rather obvious at this stage that Jenner likes teasing her fans, playing with their emotions and seeing how they’ll react to a potential engagement.
On social media, Jenner and her rapper often refer to each other as “hubby” or “wifey” — and they even labeled their Christmas gifts to one another as “daddy” and “wifey.”
The duo is apparently so secretive about their plans to marry (or not) that Kim Kardashian has admitted she isn’t certain where they stand.
“I think she would have told me,” Kardashian recently said on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon when asked about Jenner and Scott’s relationship.
Kim added in this interview:
“She’s pretty secretive, but I’m sure she would have told me. I’m not really sure. But I don’t think so.”
Really, though, it remains a question of when, not if, at this point.
Scott himself admitted as much late last year in a cover story for Rolling Stone.
â€œWeâ€™ll get married soon,â€� Scott said quite simply to this magazine, teasing his proposal and making it sound as if he knows what the answer will be when it happens:
â€œI just gotta study up – I gotta propose in a fire way.â€�
The artist doesn’t speak on Jenner very much, but he did gush over her in his own unique way when speaking to this publication.
“People donâ€™t understand how real my girl is. How ill she is,” Scott said, making us laugh by concluding:
“They have assumptions, bullshit-ass remarks of what they think is going on. Nah, bro… Sheâ€™s the coolest motherf-cker of all time.â€�
We’re inching closer and closer to labor day, folks.
No, not the holiday in America that typically signifies the unofficial end of summer.
We’re talking about something far bigger, far more rare and with far more wide-ranging implications on a global scale.
We’re talking about the day on which Meghan Markle gives birth!
While Kensington Palace is yet to confirm a specific due date for The Duchess of Sussex, reliable insiders have reported that she’s expecting to be done with her pregnancy in late April or early May.
At one point, May 2 was bantered about as the due date.
Regardless of precisely when this blessed event occurs, however, the main point remains the same: it’ll be pretty soon!
For this reason, Markle is reportedly bearing down and really trying to get ready, as Us Weekly confirms a doula has been regularly visiting her and Prince Harryâ€™s homes in both Oxfordshire and at Kensington Palace.
â€œMeghan is focused on calm and positive energy around the birth – sheâ€™s a big believer in that,â€� the source tells this tabloid, explaining that a doula assists in the babyâ€™s birth.
Especially as chatter persists that Kate Middleton basically despises Markle and that other Royals hate her, too, Harry â€œis doing everything he can to make sure Meghanâ€™s comfortable and happy,” this insider adds.
Markle and Harry for married in May of 2018 and announced the former was expecting just a few months later.
Now, they are allegedly â€œracing against timeâ€� to finish their new home at Frogmore Cottage so that it’s ready for Meghanâ€™s spring due date.
There’s still a lot to get done apparently!
“The one thing thatâ€™s holding up some of the work is the eco/energy center at the heart of Frogmore Cottage,â€� writes Us Weekly, adding:
â€œIt was important for Harry to reduce their carbon footprint as much as possible.â€�
See, these two care about the planet and take into consideration far more than just their immediate surroundings. What’s with all the hate?!?
Sadly, to critics of Markle, this sort of focus on carbon footprints and the like just make them view her as some kind of Hollywood elite, which supposedly goes a long way in explaining their disdain.
Pretty sad, huh?
According to this magazine informant, Meghan and Harryâ€™s vision for their home is â€œcity meets country – lots of muted tones, plush accents and unique pieces from around the world.â€�
The insider adds some â€œfurniture and artwork belonging to the Royal Collection, which will be on loan to them indefinitely.â€�
None of this, of course, addresses the main issues surrounding Markle’s pregnancy.
Will she have a boy or a girl? Who will be her nanny? What will she name her child?
For the answers to those questions, we’ll need to wait until the big day!!!!
