This is so adorable!
Last night on Bachelor in Paradise, we got more than we bargained for — but in the best way!
That's because the show reminded us that a Bachelor can find happiness as Tanner did more than just give Jade a rose!

When it came time for all the couples to film their final send offs, Tanner took the opportunity to express his feelings for his newfound love — oh yeah, and ask her to marry him, NBD — LOLz!
Tanner started off by saying:
"Coming into Paradise, I really didn't have any expectations about meeting somebody or falling in love with somebody. I've never met anybody who makes me feel the way I feel with you."
Jade responded by saying:
"You make me feel like the most beautiful woman in the world, and worthy, and understood, which I don't think I've ever felt from a man before, and I think even though Paradise is ending, I have a sense of peace about it because we both want to work on a future together."
Then the studly bachelor decided to scare everyone by saying,
"I can't give you this rose today."
"What we have is worth is so much more than a rose — than a million roses — I love you, Jade, and I want to keep on loving you for the rest of my entire life. Will you make me the happiest man on Earth and marry me?"
Without ANY hesitation, Jade said yes!
The episode ended very appropriately with Tanner leading a toast to "the happiest day" of his life.
We couldn't be happier for the newly engaged couple and wish them all the best!
