Who Is Chris Lane? 'Bachelor' Alum Lauren Bushnell Engaged to Country Musician

Lauren Bushnell, will you accept this rose proposal?

Formally known as former Bachelor star Ben Higgins' chosen woman, Bushnell has found love outside of the Bachelor Nation circle.

"I can't stop smiling," Bushnell captioned her latest Instagram post. "I feel so incredibly blessed that every misstep, mistake and heartache has led me to you. I couldn't be happier to call you mine, forever."

She continued: "The journey was well worth it. Thank you, Christopher Eric Lane for softening my heart and making it whole. Never going to stop telling you how much I love you and I will hold onto you forever and ever!"

"Lauren Lane has a nice ring to it," Bushnell concluded.

"Love you both! You deserve all the happiness in the world," for Bachelor contestant Amanda Stanton commented.

"I am so happy and cried watching the proposal," former Bachelorette Becca Tilley responded. "Congratulations!"

The country music star popped the question through a song addressed to Bushnell, "Take Back Home Girl," according to People.

"I knew she wouldn't want some elaborate crazy proposal," Lane tells People. "So, I decided to keep it pretty casual. I asked her parents for different places in Portland I could potentially take her to, but after a lot of thought I decided doing it at the family cookout would be the most laid-back setting and that she'd appreciate the simplicity of me proposing to her in her parents' backyard."

"I was initially worried that doing it on Father's Day might not be the best move, but her dad, Dave, said that it could only add to his Father's Day and that's when I decided Sunday, June 16 was the day," he continued. "Shout out to Lauren's parents, Dave and Kris, for having the yard in tip-top shape!"

As for the ring, Lane went with a 3.5 carat, emerald-cut diamond.

The reality TV star and Lane first began dating sometime last year and went public with their relationship in November during the BMI Country Awards in Nashville, Tennessee. After going public, Bushnell moved from Los Angeles to Nashville in March to live with the Laps Around the Sun singer.

Prior to her relationship with Lane, Bushnell was dating L.A.-based investor Devin Antin; however, more notably, was engaged to fan-favorite Bachelor Ben Higgins.

While her split from Higgins rocked Bachelor Nation to its core, Higgins reassured the public that there is no animosity between the two and he simply wishes Bushnell to be "fulfilled and happy."

"When she was dating Devin [Antin], I remember that feeling — like the Band-Aid getting ripped off," the former Bachelor, 30, told Entertainment Tonight in November 2018. "This time, and I mean this, I really want Lauren to be fulfilled and happy, whether it's with Chris or not."
