Report: Chris Lambton and Peyton Wright Are Engaged!
The nicest couple in Bachelor Nation may be getting hitched!
If true, this news caps one helluva week for Bachelorette Season 6 fan favorite Chris Lambton. First, his Boston Bruins win the Stanley Cup — forcing Canadian Bachelorette Jillian Harris to make the Bruins her Twitter avatar — and now Life & Style claims Chris is engaged to Bachelor Season 10 and Bachelor Pad 1 beauty Peyton Wright.
“I found the love of my life in Peyton,” Chris told Life & Style (via Hollywood Life). “We are so incredibly happy together. She was worth the wait.”
They were introduced by Jesse Beck, who was on The Bachelorette with Chris and on Bachelor Pad with Peyton. The hookup likely happened in August 2010 during the Jimmy V Celebrity Golf Classic in Raleigh, N.C.
Chris: "Jesse’s how we got together. He was my best friend on the show — by far, best friend. He’s my boy. The reason why we got together is, I had an event in North Carolina, and I had an 'and one.'" Peyton: “Plus one.” Chris: “He was my ‘and one.’ So we ended up going down there, and he was like, ‘Oh, this girl from Bachelor Pad is close by. She’s gonna come hang out.’ And I was like, ‘I don’t watch that crap.’ [Peyton laughs] So then she shows up, she walked into the store, and I was like, ‘Oh, my God.’ Jesse brought us together, so Jesse — thank you.”
A lot of folks hoped Chris would be the Season 15 Bachelor instead of Brad Womack, but he told Star Magazinewhy he turned it down: "When my kids are 20 years old and looking for love, I want to say, 'This is the amazing story of how I met your mom,' not, 'Oh, yeah, she was the best of 25.'"
So, congrats, Peyton & Chris, on an amazing story. You’re both lucky to have each other and we wish you a lifetime of happiness. Now stop making us so jealous already!
