Ben Higgins New Fiancee Jess Clarke Shares Photos of Romantic Proposal
The proposal took place beside a pond at the back of Clarke’s parents’ home in Tennessee.
Clarke, who met Higgins after he DMed her on Instagram, told ET that the proposal was “exactly how I would have wanted it to be. … It was great. It was perfect. I couldn’t imagine it a better way.”
Like Higgins, Clarke began to cry before he even proposed. “She said it was one of two things: either I was ending our relationship, which would have been a huge shock … or I was proposing,” he told ET.
The pair spent time social distancing at his parents’ house in Denver before driving to Tennessee. “I believe that all time together helps you prep for the next steps,” Higgins told Us on Wednesday, March 25. “This has definitely been another time where being with Jess had made me excited for our next steps.”
Higgins designed the engagement ring with the help of Gnat Jewelers in Denver. “The ring’s never coming off!” Clarke told ET.
