The Bachelorette, Jillian Harris, and her chosen beau, Ed Swiderski, are about to take a huge step in their relationship.

Nope, it's not a breakup. And it ain't a trip to the altar or the delivery room either.

The Canadian reality show heroine is moving to Chicago to be with her fairy tale fiance on Tuesday, she dished to E! News Thursday at the Rosa Cha show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in N.Y.C.

"I'm all packed up and ready to go," the 30-year-old smiled.

Oddly enough, her date for the bathing suit-centric presentation was an entirely different bachelor than the one who put the ring on her finger…

Mike Steinberg, the New York-based baseball camp owner whom Jillian eliminated in episode four, accompanied her to the catwalk. And it was Ed's idea!

"Ed was supposed to be here today but then he couldn't book his flight," she explained. "Ed and he have been really good friends since the show. So Ed's like, 'You know what, why don't you have Steinberg sit in for me? That'll make some great news.'"

The bride-to-be also admitted to spending time with flip-flopping Bachelor Jason Mesnick and his runner-up, Molly Malaney, and that her third-place finisher, Reid Rosenthal, would make an ideal next Bachelor because he's "a solid package."

Still, with all the excitement of their showmance and the big move, planning their nuptials isn't the first thing on Jillian and Ed's minds. Or is it?

"I think everybody witnessed that it could be so intense right after the show was over. We want to try to live a normal life and get to the point where we live together and start to come together and then start planning," she said.

However, moments later she revealed some juicy details.

"I want to have a couple cakes, a live band and maybe like 100 people there and that's it. Probably in my parent's backyard. Like, totally low key."

In other words, they won't be televising the event a la Trista and Ryan Sutter.

As for babies, they're in the far off future for now.

"I'm very excited to have kids but I'm excited to have a place for my clothes first," she admitted.
