The Bachelor Ben Higgins is engaged! The 26-year-old software salesman revealed the news to Kayna Whitworth on Good Morning America this morning.

"I am engaged," he told her with a big smile and a laugh. "I can say that? I haven't said that in an interview yet!" he said, adding that he and his fiancé are happier than ever.

"You don't know how much stress and weight that is, to carry on you for so long," he continued. "Good morning America, I am engaged! Yes, finally!"

This exciting announcement comes after last night's very dramatic episode, where Higgins told the two remaining contestants, Lauren Bushnell and JoJo Fletcher, that he is in love with them during their fantasy suite dates. While the goal of the show is to find the person he wants to spend the rest of his life with, professions of love are usually reserved until the final rose ceremony. Needless to say, the drama isn't over for The Bachelor.
