On Sunday, Raven Gates and Adam Gottschalk, who got together on Season 4 of the “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” spinoff in 2017, announced their engagement on Instagram.
“I’m keeping you forever and for always. We will be together all of our days. Wanna wake up every morning to your sweet face… Always,” Gates, 27, captioned the collection of engagement snaps from photographer Courtney Matthews, revealing Gottschalk, 29, had popped the question on Friday, May 31.
Raven appeared on Nick Viall’s season of The Bachelor while Adam vied for Rachel Lindsay’s heart on her season. The Arkansas native was the runner-up in her season behind Vanessa Grimaldi. Adam, however, got eliminated in Rachel’s season right before hometown dates.
“This makes me so happy!!! Congrats you two,” Season 12 “Bachelorette” JoJo Fletcher posted.
“Adam did good on that ring,” new dad and former “Bachelor” Arie Luyendyk Jr. shared.
“Love you both! Congratulations my friends,” series host Chris Harrison wrote.
“Raven’s elegant engagement ring appears to feature a cushion-cut center diamond surrounded by a sparkling halo of diamonds and set on a split-shank, diamond-accented band in white gold or platinum,” Brilliant Earth‘s VP of strategy and merchandising, Kathryn Money, told Page Six Style on Monday.
The center diamond is estimated to weigh approximately 2-2.5 carats and the ring itself is estimated to cost between $20,000 and $35,000, “depending on the quality and specific characteristics of the center diamond,” Money noted.
