The time between the filming and the airing of the finales of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette must be a tough time for the lovebirds, particularly if they are bursting with good news! The producers obviously wanted to keep Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici's engagement on the down-low, for example, but Sean didn't let that stop him from keeping the romance burning hot!

"After we finished filming the show and before it started airing, I flew her down to Dallas," he reveals to HollywoodLife.com. "I wanted her to meet my friends and my family — and, of course, that’s strictly off-limits, as The Bachelor tells you. I wanted her to see my hometown. I thought that was pretty romantic, just making the gesture — we had to creep around Dallas the whole weekend to make sure no one saw us. I wanted her to feel like she was part of my family."

It's not like we didn't have a ton of spoilers about how Sean's season ended, but ABC execs probably wouldn't have been happy had they found out about this hugely-romantic gesture. But, given that this is the first we're hearing of this, the happy duo were indeed successful in this covert affair.
