Yes, Lauren Bushnell and Ben Higgins are still on, and yes, they're still so in love. Exhibit A: Bushnell's latest Instagram wishing Higgins the happiest of birthdays.
"Happy birthday babe!!!!! I'm so thankful for this life together. Although sometimes rocky you always hold my hand and support me through it, always with a smile on your face. You deserve the world, especially today," the former Bachelor contestant wrote, along with emoji hearts and a champagne bottle for good measure.
As for Exhibit B? Bushnell sat down with Entertainment Tonight earlier this month, and based on her interview, it's clear the couple is doing even better than ever.
"A lot of people have been asking, 'Has life slowed down?'" she shared, referencing the season finale of Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After? "It hasn't really slowed down [but] we both feel a lot less stressed! I feel like we're living life, enjoying, traveling just as much, but there's a lot less stress." Additionally, the pair have "learned a lot about each other—what to do, what not to do, what makes each other mad, what makes each other happy."
In fact, the Bachelor pair are in such a "solid place" that they may be ready to "start some wedding planning." While they still aren't revealing any concrete big-day updates, Bushnell insists that she and Higgins are "in a really good place," that "things are going well," and that they're "having fun." What more could we really ask for?
