We end almost every season of The Bachelorette slow-clapping at the newly engaged couple on our screen while muttering "May the odds be ever in your favor." And — spoiler alert! — they usually aren't. Only a small handful of couples from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette have stayed together, and Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum are one of them!
These two had a strong connection from the moment J.P. swaggered out of his limo and into Ashley's open arms, and it was clear that her feelings for him were completely legit. In fact, girlfriend has proof! Turns out she was keeping a journal throughout her entire love journey, which she gifted to J.P. on the night of their tropical engagement. Awwww, how romantic!
"The night I proposed in Fiji, cameras went off, we all partied, and then we went to bed that night and she handed me this journal," J.P. told Katie Couric and Chris Harrison during a recent Bachelor-centric episode of Katie. "And she said 'just in case you thought that I ever doubted us, or thought that you weren't the one, here.'"
We can't even with this adorableness. And we love that Ashley waited to give her man this gift until the cameras were off! That being said, does anyone else think J.P. should sell said journal and get it published? Because it's already our favorite book (other than 50 Shades of Grey, obvi) and we haven't even read it yet.
