Time definitely flies! Engaged Bachelor couple Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell revealed some exciting news this weekend: They’ve officially known each other for a year.

Bachelor Nation was well represented at the music festival. JoJo Fletcher, Chris Soules, Wells Adams, Robby Hayes, Chase McNary, Becca Tilley, Hayley Ferguson and Emily Ferguson were among the former Bachelor contestants spotted at the event, because the reality show fam that constantly hangs out together gains Instagram followers together.

Higgins shared a photo posing with Bushnell at the festival, writing on Instagram, “Happy one year from meeting you babe! No better way to celebrate than #iHeartFestival.”

Bushnell also posted a pic of the pair on social media, saying, “One year ago today my life completely changed. So incredibly blessed to have met this amazing human.”

Higgins and Bushnell have been keeping busy shooting their new reality show Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After, which premieres Tuesday, Oct. 11, on Freeform.

Despite naysayers claiming that a reality show might ruin the pair’s relationship, Bushnell told E! News, “Regardless of what we do, whether it’s a TV show or it comes to our jobs, our relationship has to come first. We’ve both agreed upon that since the beginning and with this it’s no different. Nothing is going to get in the way, and it if does, we’re going to have to reevaluate at that time.”
