At least one couple will leave the upcoming fifth season of Bachelor in Paradise engaged!
The reality TV star popped the question with a Neil Lane ring yesterday, and a source described the bride-to-be as "so happy." The insider told E! News, "She really is excited to be engaged but is more excited that she's found her person. Jared feels the same!"
Ashley and Jared officially began dating in March, three years after they first met on season 2 of the ABC dating series.
So how do the future newlyweds compare to previous Bachelor in Paradise pairings? Not everyone has made it down the aisle, but BiP has brought an impressive seven couples together—two of which are now parents!
Celebrate Ashley and Jared's engagement with a look back at every other BiP proposal.
Lacy and Marcus left season 1 of Bachelor in Paradise engaged, only to swap vows during the season 2 premiere. The pair broke up less than year later, and revealed they were never legally married. In January 2018, Grodd tied the knot with fellow Canadian Ally Lutar.
A true BiP fairytale, Tanner popped the question during season 2. Their 2016 wedding ceremony aired during the ABC special, The Bachelor: A Celebration of Love, and the inseparable duo are now the proud parents to 1-year-old daughter, Emerson Avery!
Not even Bachelor in Paradise producers could script this real-life drama. After leaving the third season engaged, Amanda and Josh's relationship spiraled out of control in January 2017. The mom-of-two accused the former baseball pro of being "extremely controlling," prompting Murray to threaten legal action against his former fiancée. Uh-oh.

Only three months after sealing their love with a proposal and matching "Grace" tattoos during season 3, the reality TV stars decided to go their separate ways.
It was during the Bachelor in Paradise season 4 reunion taping that Derek finally got down on one knee and proposed. Almost one year later, things between the bride and groom-to-be took a turn for the worse when they announced their split in June 2018.
"It is with much sadness that we have decided to end our engagement. We put everything we could into our relationship and are heartbroken to go forward separately, but we know this is the best decision for the both of us," the exes told E! News exclusively. "We will still be present in each other's lives with support, admiration and respect for each other."
