It turns out love did happen on the most recent season of Bachelor in Paradise!

Cast mates Derek Peth and Taylor Nolan got engaged during the taping of the Season 4 After Show on Wednesday, according to Us Weekly. “No one knew Derek was going to propose,” a source reportedly told Us. “He gave her a Neil Lane ring.”

Proposing on national TV with a Neil Lane ring?! Is there another way for a member of Bachelor Nation to pop the question?????

Are we written in the stars baby, or are we written in the sand?

Peth, 30, and Nolan, 23, got cozy as soon as Paradise started filming, and when the show halted production in June, the pair apparently talked every day. As soon as filming started up again in Sayulita, Mexico, the couple picked up right where they left off and continued to be one of the few solid couples on the show. Although there were bumps along the way (Monday’s episode showed a tense argument between the two), they truly seem to be obsessed with each other.

Peth and Nolan join the growing gang of couples who got engaged after meeting in Paradise, including recently married Carly Waddell and Evan Bass, and all-time faves, Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert. Waddell and Bass recently revealed they are expecting their first child together, and Roper and Tolbert just welcomed a baby girl. Our hearts are exploding!!

While we wait for Peth and Nolan’s extra lavish televised wedding, we’ll continue to watch the rest of the season of Paradise in hopes that at least one other couple can be as happy as these two. Congrats, you guys!
