According to the Life & Style story, the winner of Ashley’s final rose proposed to her with a stunning Neil Lane diamond (naturally) while filming the season finale on May 13 on a remote Fiji island.
“Ashley's elated,” a source tells Life & Style. “She’s engaged to the winner and is wearing her engagement ring.” A month after the finale was taped, and four weeks into the show’s broadcast, "she's definitely still in the relationship," confirms an insider. "She says she's really happy."

Ashley is not the only one who is happy, the insider says. Her chosen one also has a positive report. “He said, ‘I’m in such a great place in my life and I’m the happiest I’ve ever been,’” reveals the insider. “He’s the sweetest guy, and he’s very sensitive. He had his heart broken in the past, but he loves being in a relationship, and he and Ashley have great chemistry.” (Okay, part of that sounds like JP Rosenbaum, but part sounds like… not JP.)
Ash and her chosen one are doing the usual hide-out thing, but they have found ways to be together. “They’ve been sneaking away for sexy date nights whenever they can,” another source said.
Two things about this — one, thank heaven! Reality Steve already spoiled that Ashley was engaged, and his sources have told him it's to JP Rosenbaum. However, that info came out before the show started airing and we heard all this nonsense about Bentley. We wondered how her chosen one was going to take it. This makes it sound like he either doesn't care or he can at least live with it.
The second thing? This quite possible could be ABC's doing. Whoever this "insider" is, it could be someone in The Bachelorette's PR world doing damage control to appease fans who are so sick of both Bentley and Ashley's whining about Bentley that they can't imagine there’s a light at the end of this tunnel. So the show has to make sure we know there is a happy ending coming. For Brad Womack, they did the happy ending spoiler before the show even started, because he already had a track record for depressing endings. (And that record seems to be going strong.)
But back to that chosen one description for a minute. The sweetest guy. Very sensitive. Had his heart broken. Loves being in a relationship. Are we sure that sounds like JP? He and Ashley definitely have great chemistry and of course he’s sweet — with a nickname like Cupcake, how couldn’t he be? — but he comes off as more strong than sensitive and we haven’t heard anything about his heartbreak. All we have heard, so far, is that he tends to have short relationships that he ends himself.
What do you think, Spoiler Nation? Are we still on track for a happy ending for Team Cupcake? Tell us in the comments below!
