These 10 Bachelor in Paradise Couples Beat the Odds and Are Living Their Happily Ever Afters
When contestants don't find love on The Bachelor or The Bachelorette, the lucky ones get a second chance on Bachelor in Paradise. They are put up in a beautiful resort in Mexico, mingle with singles from other seasons, and go on romantic dates. Could you think of a better recipe for drama? However, through the ups and downs, some find a genuine connection and continue dating after the show. Some even get married, have babies, and live happily after! Who are these couples who defied all odds? Say hello to the men and women who found love on reality TV and are still together.
Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon — Season 2
It was the relationship no one saw coming, but we couldn't be happier for them! Ashley and Jared first met in paradise in 2015, and Ashley fell hard. It took years of friendship (during which Ashley dated Kevin Wendt, who also made this list) before Jared realized he cared for her in that way, but they eventually began dating in 2018. It didn't take long for the couple to announce their engagement (and convince us all that fairy tales are real). The bride and groom will seal the deal in August 2019.
Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert — Season 2
Jade and Tanner make one cute pair, and it all started during season two of Bachelor in Paradise. They got engaged at the end and tied the knot in January 2016. They welcomed their first child, a daughter by the name of Emerson, in August 2017. Their family is getting a little bigger in August 2019, when their son is expected to arrive.
Carly Waddell and Evan Bass — Season 3
Remember when Carly and Evan went on a date where they broke the Guinness World Record for "longest habanero pepper kiss" (much to Carly's dismay, at the time)? Yeah, they've come a long way since then. The adorable couple got engaged during the Bachelor in Paradise season three finale and married in Mexico, and Chris Harrison officiated their wedding. They welcomed a daughter, Isabella Evelyn, in February 2018 to join Evan's three sons. Their family will grow even more come November 2019 when their second child together is expected to arrive.
Raven Gates and Adam Gottschalk — Season 4
This good-looking couple started dating in paradise and continued to be ridiculously adorable afterward. "Everyone deserves an Adam," Raven gushed on her Instagram in 2018. Their love took the next step when Adam got down on one knee in May 2019. Fellow Bachelor alum were quick to send their congratulations, so we wouldn't be surprised to see a bunch at their wedding.
Kendall Long and Joe Amabile — Season 5
Bachelor Nation fell in love with Grocery Store Joe after the first episode of The Bachelorette season 14. Although he was sent home the first night, that was the best thing that could have happened to him! He met Kendall in paradise, and while the two had their fair shares of struggles, their relationship is so cute that you can't help but root for them. It looks like the pair are heading in the right direction, because they moved into a Los Angeles spot together in April 2019!
Astrid Loch and Kevin Wendt — Season 5
It took Kevin going on The Bachelorette Canada, The Bachelor Winter Games (where he dated Ashley Iaconetti, who's also on this list), and Bachelor in Paradise to find love. Worth it? We'd say so, since it all led him to Astrid. The couple had an emotional breakup in paradise but reported they were back together during the show's reunion. Astrid and Kevin are still going strong, and they moved in together in December 2018 and started remodeling their Canadian home.
Krystal Nielson and Chris Randone — Season 5
They started as villains on their respected Bachelor and Bachelorette seasons, and now Krystal and Chris are married! The two began their happily ever after by tying the knot in June 2019. Chris Harrison officiated their wedding in Mexico, and now they continue their adorable relationship as husband and wife.
Demi Burnett and Kristian Haggerty — Season 6
OK, so maybe Demi and Kristian knew each other longer than a month, but they still had their fair share of issues to overcome. Demi was anxious over how people would react to her being with a woman and wasn't into PDA like Kristian was, so their love languages were different. These obstacles couldn't stop the connection between these two, and Demi proposed to Kristian, making them the first same-sex couple to leave Paradise together.
Dylan Barbour and Hannah Godwin — Season 6
Hannah had a fling with Blake Horstmann at the very beginning of their time in Paradise, but Dylan never gave up on showing Hannah that he was the one for her. When she had to choose between the two, Hannah chose Dylan, and the rest of their time in Mexico seemed as easy as could be. Dylan got down on one knee and Hannah said yes!
Chris Bukowski and Katie Morton — Season 6
Things weren't always perfect for Katie and Chris, but they were together through most of their time in Paradise. To Bachelor Nation, it looked like Katie felt stronger for Chris than he did her — other cast members even said that she was more into him. They ended up engaged when they left Paradise, but on their season's reunion show, Katie broke down and shared with Chris Harrison that she and Chris were really struggling in their relationship. The two have decided they love each other enough to try to make it work, and we wish them all the best!
