That’s a wrap on season 25 of The Bachelor. Sure, it all ended with Colton Underwood breaking Bachelor tradition by dumping his final two women (Tayshia and Hannah G.), but it also involved Underwood surprising us all by going back to Cassie Randolph, who dumped him on the penultimate episode, as asking for a second chance. Now, Underwood and Randolph are the newest Bachelor Nation couple — and they’re loving every minute of it, if their new photos as a couple are anything to go by.
Shortly after the Bachelor season finale on Tuesday night, Underwood’s posted a very cute, very saccharine Instagram that also acts as the Bachelor Nation couple’s first photo together. The pic Underwood shared shows him shirking a shirt and either hanging out in bed with Randolph.
He captioned the photo: “Whatever I write will never fully articulate the feelings I have for you. You are the most incredible person whom I have ever met, you have the kindest soul and the sweetest heart. You changed my life for the better and made this year the best year of my life. I can’t wait for our adventures ahead… I have my best friend. I have my girlfriend. I have my future fiancé. I have my future wife. But most importantly I have you. Let’s do this thing they call life… together… forever. I love you @cassierandolph.”
Cassie gushed in her post, “I was going to wait until west coast aired to post this, but I am too impatient. So here it goes! The secret is finally out!!! Colton, you truly have my heart… Walking into this experience, I honestly wasn’t sure that true love could come from it. It hasn’t necessarily been the easiest road to get to where we are, but if that’s what it took to get here, then every single twist and turn has been undeniably WORTH IT.”
She continued, “The last 4 months, just focusing on ‘us’ have been amazing and you have become my best friend. You have shown me the purest, strongest love that any girl could ask for. You jumped a fence, took a risk, and challenged the ‘rules’ to fight for us. I can’t even begin to describe how lucky I feel to have you by my side. I am so excited to see what is next for us in this new phase of our ‘journey’… I’d jump a thousand fences for you and ‘like, I know, I KNOW’ that I love you more than words, point blank ps. you still give me butterflies.”
Here’s to a PDA-filled romance between Underwood and Randolph, who seem to be taking things slow, steady and keeping it super romantic.
