20 Couples From Bachelor Nation Who Are Still Together

The year 2020 marks 18 years since The Bachelor first premiered, and since then, it's spawned numerous spinoffs . . . and even some successful relationships! While the majority of leads don't end up happily ever after with their chosen ones, they often find love within the franchise's extended family. While we're wishing the best of luck to Clare Crawley (not that she needs it anymore) and Tayshia Adams on the current season of The Bachelorette, let's take a look back at all the couples who have made it work over the years. A handful even have adorable kids or are currently expecting!

Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici

Surprisingly — or not so surprisingly, depending on how you look at it — there are only two couples from the original series of The Bachelor who are still together today, one of which is Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici. The adorable couple found love on season 17 of The Bachelor, and although some people didn't see Sean choosing Catherine as his forever love, their romance has definitely proved that you can find love on a TV show.

Sean and Catherine tied the knot in a televised ceremony in January 2014. Since their TV nuptials, the duo, who currently reside in Dallas, welcomed their first child, Samuel, in 2016, and they've continued to make Bachelor Nation proud throughout their marriage and family journey. They welcomed their second son, Isaiah, in May 2018, and a daughter, Mia, in December 2019.


Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney

Season 13 of The Bachelor was not without its controversies — like the fact that Jason Mesnick picked Melissa Rycroft and then revealed on After the Final Rose that he broke up with Melissa to instead date the runner-up, Molly Malaney. Although their romance got off to a rocky start, the Bachelor couple have really seemed to bounce back and are living happily ever after nowadays.

The duo tied the knot in 2010 in a televised ceremony, and Molly took on the role of stepmother to Jason's son, Ty. In 2013, the couple welcomed their first child, daughter Riley, together, and their love story has continued to shine in the sea of otherwise unsuccessful Bachelor relationships. The family currently live in Seattle.


Trista Rehn and Ryan Sutter

Leave it to the ladies to pick more suitable men on The Bachelorette. Trista Rehn was the first Bachelorette, and she chose Ryan Sutter to be her forever man — and it worked!

The couple, who are frequently looked to for advice by other Bachelor and Bachelorette couples, tied the knot in 2003 (on TV, no less), and their love is too cute. Sure, they've had their ups and downs, as we've seen on series like Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars, but overall, their romance has been pretty solid.

"You have to put in the time and effort and energy that you do into everything else in your life. And I feel like [Ryan and I] do that," Trista told Today back in 2015 about why her romance works. "We've had our bumps in the road, just like anyone else, but it's really about staying focused on each other and dedicating time to each other."

They currently live in Vail, CO, and have two adorable children, son Maxwell and daughter Blakesley. You can follow their sweet family life on social media, and we highly recommend you do so ASAP!


JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers

Joelle, aka JoJo, Fletcher is one of the more recent success stories from The Bachelorette. During season 12 of the series, she fell for Jordan Rodgers, and after the show wrapped in 2016, they remained an item. Jordan proposed to JoJo again in August 2019 with a new ring, but their summer 2020 wedding had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.


Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried

Another successful relationship from The Bachelorette is season nine couple Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried. Although their romance started off a little weird — fans thought after contestant Brooks walked away that she was settling with Chris — Desiree clearly knew what she was doing when she picked her now-husband.

This cute couple got engaged during their finale episode and later got married in January 2015. They currently reside in Portland, OR, and have an adorable family together with their son Asher, who was born in 2016, and son Zander, who was born in January 2019.


Rachel Lindsay and Bryan Abasolo

Rachel Lindsay is still happily in love with the man she chose on The Bachelorette's 13th season! When the series wrapped in the summer of 2017, Rachel and Bryan Abasolo were engaged and ready to start their lives together.

After living in Dallas together for nearly two years, Rachel and Bryan moved to Miami in 2019. They tied the knot in August 2019 in Mexico, with family and Bachelor pals Kristina Schulman, Astrid Loch, and Bibiana Julian in attendance.


Deanna Pappas and Stephen Stagliano

Deanna Pappas was the Bachelorette in 2008 (after competing on season 11 of The Bachelor), and although we thought she found love with Jesse Csincsak, they called it quits in November 2008. Don't feel too bad for Deanna, however, because she did find love in the Bachelor family! She married Stephen Stagliano, the twin brother of Michael Stagliano, who was on Jillian Harris's season of The Bachelorette.

They tied the knot in October 2011 and now have two children, Addison and Austin.

"He's a fantastic father," Deanna told E! Online in 2018. "My children love him a lot, more than they love me probably."

Clearly, love does exist, but sometimes you need to look past your own season to find it within the reality TV realm.


Jesse Csincsak and Ann Lueders

After "winning" season four of The Bachelorette and later calling off his wedding to Deanna, Jesse Csincsak found love within the Bachelor family, like his former flame. In August 2010, Jesse married Ann Lueders, who was on Jason Mesnick's season of The Bachelor. The happy couple live in Arizona and together they have three children.


Peyton Wright and Chris Lambton

Peyton Wright and Chris Lambton have mostly been able to fly under the radar, possibly because neither was a leading star on the franchise. Peyton was a contestant on season 10 of The Bachelor, while her now-husband Chris was on season six of The Bachelorette.

Peyton and Chris met through a mutual friend, got married in May 2012, and went on to star on their own reality series — but not on ABC. Instead, this loving couple, who have two kids together and live in Massachusetts, and hosted the HGTV landscaping show Going Yard. Now, you can see them on numerous projects and shows for HGTV. Talk about being a star reality duo!


Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert

Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert proved that Bachelor in Paradise wasn't just an absurd spinoff of The Bachelor — set in a tropical place and full of drinking and hooking up — when they got engaged on the season two finale of the series. They later wed in Dana Point, CA, in 2016, and yes, it was then televised.

The happy couple now live in Kansas City, KS, which is Tanner's hometown, where they built a house together and are raising their daughter, Emerson Avery, whom they welcomed in August 2017. They couple made news last year when Jade gave birth to their son . . . in their closet! Jade is currently pregnant with the couple's third child.


Carly Waddell and Evan Bass

Season three of Bachelor in Paradise was the season for engagements, with three men popping the question. The only couple, however, who are still together from that season are Carly Waddell and Evan Bass. Carly followed in the footsteps of her Bachelor BFF Jade Tolbert (aka Jade Roper) and tied the knot with her BIP bae Evan in 2017 (and it aired on season four of the show). Jade was a bridesmaid, of course, returning the favor to Carly, who had been in Jade's wedding the year prior.

After getting married in front of their friends and family, Carly and Evan started their lives together in Nashville. While Evan already has three sons, the duo welcomed their first child together, a baby girl named Isabella, in February 2018, and a son named Charlie in November 2019.


Raven Gates and Adam Gottschalk

Raven Gates, who appeared on Nick Viall's season of The Bachelor, and Adam Gottschalk, from Rachel Lindsay's Bachelorette season, began their romance on season four of Bachelor in Paradise. It's been two years since then, and the two are still together! Adam proposed in June 2019, and they're now planning their wedding.


Holly Durst and Blake Julian

Blake Julian and Holly Durst might not be the first couple to come to mind when you think of Bachelor Nation success stories, but they are going strong. The couple met on Bachelor Pad's second season, and although Holly sent Blake home, she wrote him a note telling him that their love story wasn't over . . . and she was right. The couple later announced that they were engaged in 2011, and by 2012, they were married! The dynamic duo now live in Greenville, SC, and are parents to a beautiful baby girl.


Lauren Burnham and Arie Luyendyk Jr.

The couple that breaks off multiple engagements together, stays together . . . right? Lauren Burnham and Arie Luyendyk Jr. might have only just reunited following Arie's messy breakup with Becca Kufrin, but whether Bachelor Nation is a fan of them or not, the pair are in it for the long haul. They got married in Hawaii in January of 2019, welcomed a daughter in May, then got married again in Las Vegas in August 2019.


Kaitlyn Bristowe and Jason Tartick

Kaitlyn has had a lot of ups and downs on the Bachelor franchise! She first appeared on Chris Soules's season of The Bachelor, then led her own season of The Bachelorette. She chose Shawn Booth, but the two broke off their engagement in 2018 after three years together.

Months later, Kaitlyn met fan-favorite Jason during a taping of her podcast. He asked her out, and the couple have been official since February 2019.


Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon

It's finally the right time for these two! Ashley had been open about being in love with Jared since they first met on Bachelor in Paradise in 2015. After a little bit of on-and-off dating, Jared decided he just wanted to be friends . . . but Ashley was persistent. Jared finally admitted he had romantic feelings for Ashley after Bachelor Winter Games in 2017. The happy couple got engaged in June 2018 and wed in August 2019 in front of all of their franchise friends.


Kevin Wendt and Astrid Loch

Kevin Wendt, the former "winner" of Canada's edition of The Bachelorette, proposed to Astrid Loch in September 2019. Though they worried their relationship was boring during the 2018 season of Bachelor in Paradise, we're sure they'll have plenty of exciting moments while planning their wedding!


Caelynn Miller-Keyes and Dean Unglert

Caelynn and Dean had quite the rollercoaster of a love story on Bachelor in Paradise. Caelynn fell hard for Dean, Dean left the show thinking he couldn't give Caelynn the life she wanted, only to return later and tell her he couldn't stop thinking about her. She took a massive leap and agreed to travel the world with him, and they've been posting scenic Instagrams ever since.


Hannah Godwin and Dylan Barbour

Dylan and Hannah locked in on each other during the 2019 season of Bachelor in Paradise, and though Hannah wavered ever so slightly, the two ended up engaged by the end of the summer. They are still living happily ever after and planning their wedding!


Peter Weber and Kelley Flanagan

The Bachelor's 2020 lead, Peter Weber, didn't end up with Kelley Flanagan on his season, but the two reconnected after filming and are a happy couple! It's no wonder they paired up — they memorably met prior to Peter's season at a hotel, and she seems to have the blessing of Peter's mother.
