It seems like Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell did get their happily ever after 鈥 no question mark 鈥 even if it鈥檚 not a shared one. Following the Bachelor couple鈥檚 split in May, the former flight attendant assured E! News that even though she鈥檚 moved back to Los Angeles, she and her ex-fianc茅 are in a good place, given the situation.

Lauren Bushnell and Ben Higgins

At SodaStream鈥檚 National Hydration Day event on Wednesday, Bushnell told E! that despite the distance between her and Higgins (she recently moved back to Marina Del Rey), they still 鈥渢ouch base鈥 now and then. 鈥淲e check in with each other and say 鈥榟ow are you doing?鈥 but we try not to do it all the time because we want to give each other time to heal and give each other our space,鈥 she shared. 鈥淏ut we鈥檙e on good terms and I genuinely wish the best for him and I think he wishes the best of me. It鈥檚 good, there鈥檚 no bad blood there at all. I鈥檓 really excited for him and what he has going on.鈥

Higgins previously shared a similar聽sentiment on his podcast with Ashley Iaconetti. 鈥淲hen you really care about somebody and you really love somebody and that has to end 鈥 for whatever reason, even for reasons that either person can鈥檛 really explain, it鈥檚 just a feeling and you have to go your separate ways 鈥 it hurts. It hurts bad,鈥 he said.

To help her move past that hurt, Bushnell has been focusing on 鈥渇riends, family, the beach, and working out鈥 鈥 not dating, although if it happens, 鈥済reat.鈥 Her current obsession: pilates at Marina del Rey鈥檚 The Studio. 鈥淚t鈥檚 really hard but I love it. It clears my mind when I do it,鈥 she raved to E!.

A clear mind will probably help when the time comes for her to return her engagement ring. 鈥淚 want to give it back, but I think [the producers] have had a lot of other stuff going on. I will give it back,鈥 she said of the $80,000 Neil Lane stunner.
