Tenley Molzahn can hang up her reality show hat — at least when it comes to looking for true love. Though she struck out in the romance deparment with her (count ‘em!) three stints on TV, coming in as a runner-up on Jake Pavelka’s season of The Bachelor before going on to star on Bachelor Pad and Bachelor in Paradise, she’s finally found the one, accepting a proposal from boyfriend Taylor Leopold over the weekend.
She showed off her brand new bling, which appeared to consist of a large round diamond, over on Instagram with a sweet shot of her holding her man’s chest.“THIS IS HAPPENING!!!” she wrote. “Last night I said yes to spending forever with him! My heart is gushing with happiness and excitement and I can’t stop thinking of how good God is!”
She also wrote a sweet message for her soon-to-be hubs, saying, “Taylor, you’re the answer to some of my heart’s greatest prayers and deepest desires, and that you have chosen me, and that we really get to do this, my heart is full of praise! God’s love and faithfulness has always been true to me, but since the day I met you, I truly believed that God had all along been letting me find my way to you.”
According to US Weekly, the couple has been dating since early 2016, with Molzahn gushing his praises from the very beginning. “His name is Taylor, he’s gorgeous. His smile is just contagious,” she gushed to the mag at the time.
It was his heart that the 33-year-old says “got her,” however. “I had the best first date of my life with him and in that minute of just meeting him I knew there was something really special about him.”
Congratulations to the happy couple !
