Surprise: Bachelor Nation stars Ty Brown and Elizabeth Kitt are engaged! In related news, Ty Brown and Elizabeth Kitt were dating!

We first met Elizabeth on Jake Pavelka's The Bachelor Season 14, then she got dramalicious (and went blonde) in her troubled showmance with Jesse Kovacs on Bachelor Pad Season 1. After the show, Elizabeth wrote a whole Match.com thing about meeting her then-boyfriend online, but that was back in 2011 and we kinda lost touch with her after that.

We met Nashville country singer Ty on Ali Fedotowsky's The Bachelorette Season 6. After the show, he started dating Terry Bradshaw's daughter, Rachel, but then we kinda lost touch with him too. See, they already have something in common!

But even though we haven’t been keeping up with Elizabeth and Ty, apparently they connected on the very busy Bachelor Nation circuit, sparks flew, and voilà! In fact, it was their Bach-y buds who clued us into the happy news that this couple has taken it to the next step!

Ty's fellow Season 6-er Craig Robinson tweeted on October 15, "Mazel tov to @Tybrownmusic and @elizabethkitt22 much love to u both and lookin forward to celebrating." A fan replied, "ty and elizabeth are dating?" and Craig replied, "It's a little more serious. He baked her a diamond cake!" (That guy. Always the kidder.)

The day before, Craig had tweeted, "Had a blast this wknd and so good to cruise w/ @Tybrownmusic and @elizabethkitt22 yesterday. Let me know when the spare bedroom is ready!" From what we’ve been told, Ty and Elizabeth just moved into a new house this week, so it seems they have a lot of exciting changes happening at once!

You never know where or when love is going to find you, but congrats to Ty and Elizabeth on being the latest Bachelor/ette “success” story. May the rest of your life together be one long trip to the fantasy suite.
