Bachelor Nation, it's time to meet the real Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell.
The fan-favorite couple's Freeform reality show, Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After?, is finally making its debut tonight, and giving viewers an inside look at their life in Denver after the final rose. But wait, why is there a question mark at the end of the show's title?!
Fret not, Ben and Lauren fans. The couple, who recently had a joint Bachelor-Bachelorette party, assured us that their relationship isn't in any trouble.
"I think it's actually a really good thing because it's the question mark of life," Ben told E! News at The Knot Gala in New York City on Monday night. "Unexpected things are going to happen in your relationships and life, and Lauren and I are still trying to get to know each other and we're still finding out things about each other everyday and that's where the question mark comes in. It's not if we're happy or not. I will give a spoiler and say we're very happy, but there are things that will pop up that are unexpected."
Speaking of unexpected, Ben and Lauren recently made headlines when they revealed they attend couples counseling after getting engaged at the end of season 20. Let us repeat what we said earlier: Fret not!
"It is kind of taboo and I don't think it should be that way. I think everyone just wanted to make sure we are OK, and yes, we are OK," Lauren said of the couple attending therapy sessions. "It was more preventative. We want to have a really solid foundation and we want to address certain problems maybe before they even exist and just have that third party to help us through pre-marriage and engagement and being a new couple."
Honesty on reality TV?! How refreshing.
In addition to seeing Ben and Lauren redecorate their home in Denver, hang out with friends and family, and figure out life after The Bachelor on their new show, we will also see the couple make some progress on a very big event a lot of people have been asking about.
"We are in the process of wedding planning. We're newly engaged, so there's definitely a wedding in our future," Lauren assured, while adding there's a "a chance" that some Bachelor alum will be in the wedding party. Perhaps twins Haley and Emily Ferguson, who appear in the premiere?
"I'm really close with a couple of the women and you'll see those faces on the show," Lauren teased. To hear more from Ben and Lauren about their new show and their recent bachelor and bachelorette parties in Las Vegas (Ben didn't sleep for two days?!), watch our interview with them above now.
In honor of their new show's debut on Freeform tonight, Ben and Lauren will have their own custom emoji through the end of the season, which you can see above and activate by using the #BenAndLauren and #BenandLaurenPromotion hashtags on Twitter. Plus, starting tonight at 6 p.m. ET, the first 1,500 Twitter uses who post a tweet tagging @BenandLaurenTV and use the hashtag #BenandLaurenPromotion and the rose and pizza emojis will receive a free pizza delivered to them wherever they are watching the premiere. You read that right: Free. Pizza.
Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After? premieres tonight at 8 p.m. on Freeform.
