Juan Pablo Galavis

Juan Pablo and Nikki Ferrell Get Close at the Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational Gala (PHOTOS)

Despite what people may think, it looks like Juan Pablo Galavis and Nikki Ferrell are going strong. Really strong.

The Bachelor ;Season 18 couple stepped out for the 13th annual Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational gala at the ARIA Resort & Casino at CityCenter in Las Vegas, Nevada, on April 4.

Juan and Nikki looked super smiley while getting close and posing for photos together on the red carpet. Juan even posted a photo of himself and his lady on the golf course at the event — in matching bright Polos, might we add. Loving it.

Speaking of the L-word, Juan Pablo apparently said "I love you" to Nikki! At the "After the Final Rose" special, which aired in early March, Juan Pablo hadn't told Nikki he loved her yet. Fans everywhere have been waiting for those three words, and it sounds like Juan was finally ready. Hey, it wasn't your typical Bachelor finale, but we hope these two are happy.
