Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon Are Finally Dating and OMG!


After episode after episode of Bachelor’s Ashley Iaconetti weeping (literally, weeping) on Bachelor In Paradise over Jared Haibon, they’re officially dating!!

The duo made the emotional — well, emotional for us #BachelorNation fans — announcement in a sweet video titled "The Story of Us." 

For those who aren’t familiar with the finally couple, Jared famously denied Ashley I. over and over on BiP, but they remained friends. 

While Jared admits in the announcement video above that he wasn't in love with Ashley during BiP, he "never felt like it was over between [them] after Paradise." 

The duo then went on a trip with fellow Bachelor alums Jade and Tanner Tolbert and Jared confessed his feelings. The only issue was, Ashley was dating Kevin Wendt from Bachelor Winter Games at the time. Once Ashley and Kevin split, Jared wrote her a love letter and the rest is history.


"I was scream-crying basically alone in my apartment reading that just sobbing and sobbing," Ashley shares in the video. "He’s written me other letters and filled my apartment with flowers. He tells me every day that he’s the luckiest man alive."

Jared added: “I’m living proof that you should listen to your gut, and that it’s not too late. The person I wanted to be with most was right in front of my eyes.”

Swoon! Watch the video above. Catch season 14 of The Bachelorette on ABC on Monday, May 28.
