As Desiree Hartsock duly noted on Monday night's finale of The Bachelorette, her heartbreak with Brooks Forester made her see the man right in front of her, which, as we all know, was Chris Siegfried.
But before the latter asked for her hand in marriage, a proposal that Desiree gleefully accepted to the surprise of many in Bachelor Nation, it turns out Des had a "baby Bachelor" waiting in the wings!
Just before her appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night following the reality dating show's season-ender, Jimmy Kimmel aired a spoof—or, as the funnyman put it, "secret footage" of The Bachelorette finale that never made it to air—in which viewers were introduced to Wesley, Chris' pint-size rival who also won Hartsock's heart.
The clip kicked off with the shocking news that Desiree and Chris had already broken up, followed by a voiceover from Desiree stating, "I realize that there is only one person in the world who can make me happy and I have to go to him."
Enter Wesley, whom the bridal stylist hoped to win back.
"What are you doing here? No one's supposed to know about us," the adorable toddler tells her (while eating a stack of pancakes, natch).
"Wesley, I love you. I've always loved you," Desiree replies.
"Why did you leave me?" Wesley asked.
"You left me to go into the Baby Bachelor," she said.
At that point, the "lovebirds" are interrupted by Jess, Wes' other girlfriend, who tells Desiree, "I'm your worst nightmare, honey."
From there, it's a love triangle for the ages—and one that could have only been dreamed up by Kimmel and his writing staff.
After Wesley and Desiree depart, leaving Jess in the dust, there's a montage of the new couple engaging in a game of hide-and-seek, playing with Wesley's transformers, and sharking a milkshake (awww).
"He's everything I ever wanted in a toddler," a smiling Hartsock declares.
This sort of Big-in-reverse relationship takes a dark turn, however: When Des and Wes hop in a limo to head down to the courthouse to tie the knot, it turns out Jess is driving!
No one ever said meeting the
man boy of her dreams would be easy!
