We don’t have to tell you that The Bachelor Season 17 couple Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici are getting married — you’ve already made it clear that you can’t wait for their January 26, 2014 wedding! And while we’ve been tracking all the details since day one, now we have one more to add to the mix: the minister!

Sean spoke to Life & Style on November 26 about who will be pronouncing Sean and Cat man and wife, and it’s just who it should be: his dad!

“I can’t think of a more godly man to conduct the ceremony,” Sean tells the magazine. “My dad has had such a powerful and positive influence on my life, I thought it was only fitting to have him officiate our wedding.”

We couldn’t be happier that Sean’s darling dad is getting more screentime. We first fell in love with Jay in Colleyville, Texas, when Sean took Emily Maynard there on his hometown date in Season 8 of The Bachelorette. He showed off his humorous side by helping Sean prank the little Charlotte gal into thinking Seanie still lived at home.

Then, in Thailand on Sean’s Bachelor 2013 finale, Jay touched our hearts when he told Cat that if she was the one his son picked, he would “love her like a daughter.” Not only that, he said he would be “best friends” with her the way he is with his daughter Shay’s husband, Andrew.

So obviously, Jay has been our choice from the start, considering we basically want him to have his own spin-off, where a TV camera follows him around, showing him saying inspirational things. And while it’s a bummer that Chris Harrison won’t be doing the honors, the way he did for Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum in December 2012, we were prepared for that.

“I doubt Chris will be officiating only because, you know, my dad is an ordained minister, my grandfather is a minister, there is a lot of ministers in line that might supercede Chris Harrison,” Sean explained to ABC back in March 2013, a couple days after his engagement to Cat aired.

Are you excited to watch Jay Lowe hit the small screen again? Will you be tuning in to watch the wedding? Hit the comments and tell us what you’re most looking forward to seeing on January 26!
