No red roses were present this time, but there was plenty of romance. Former Bachelor contestant Britt Nilsson is engaged to boyfriend Jeremy Byrne.

Nilsson, who nearly beat Kaitlyn Bristowe for the role of season 11 Bachelorette, took to Instagram on Wednesday, May 23, to announce her engagement to fans. “Really big news!!” Nilsson wrote, alongside a photo of herself surrounded by a sea of candles. She then followed up with another post, gushing about her future husband.

Really big news!! 🌟🌟🌟🌟

“WE ARE ENGAGED!!!!” the future bride continued. “I’m over the moon!!! The man of my dreams and the most godly, amazing, fun, life-giving, silly, intelligent, wonderful best friend I could ever ask for is my future husband!!!!”

Nilsson memorably competed on Chris Soules’ season of The Bachelor back in 2015, and was later selected to be one of two Bachelorettes to vie for the official title in season 11. Ultimately, the majority of suitors voted off Nilsson in favor of Bristowe, who’s now engaged to Shawn Booth.

“I have been dreaming of this day forever!! Thank You Jesus!!!” she continued. “Wooo hooooo!!!!! I had no idea it was coming and it was the best day of my life! I love you forever Jeremy Byrne!!!”

The couple detailed exactly how Byrne proposed in a YouTube video. Byrne managed to trick Nilsson into thinking he was on a camping trip, but he had another action plan in mind. The future groom, instead, flew directly to Detroit to meet with Nilsson’s father to receive his blessing.
