The trophy wife has been found! Former Bachelorette
pariah contestant Ryan Bowers is engaged to girlfriend Ana Christina Rodriguez. Congrats, you two!
Ryan — who competed for Emily Maynard's love on Season 8 of The Bachelorette — popped the question to Ana over the weekend. On February 2, Ryan posted the photo below of himself holding the ring just before proposing. Check out those candles and rose pedals!
"Moments before @anachristinarod arrived last night," Ryan captions the shot. "She said yes to becoming my trophy wife!!"
He also posted a pic of himself down on one knee. "This is the moment I was always looking for," he captions that one. "Ana @anachristinarod you are truly what God had in mind for me all along. You are worth all the wait!!! My love.. My#trophy !!" How sweet! (Sorta.)
Ana sounds elated, too, posting the pic above of herself smooching the personal trainer while showing off her new bling. "Thank You, Lord, for the man I will spend the rest of my life with," Ana captions the photo. "I love you, @RyanBowers22... #ISaidYes!"
We first learned about the couple's relationship back in March 2013 when Ryan posted photos of them together. Ana is a former beauty pageant winner and refers to herself on Twitter as a motivational speaker and pageant coach.
As you may recall, Ryan seemed to suffer from foot-in-mouth disease on Bachelorette when he told Emily he was looking for a trophy wife and said he wouldn't "love on" his wife if she gained weight. Nice. So while Emily may not be shedding any tears right now, we're thrilled that Ryan has found his perfect person.
We wish these two all the best!
