Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell are happily engaged… with no wedding day in sight!
As you may know, The Bachelor winners recently called off their televised wedding on their Freeform series, Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After? — and now we're hearing no other plans have been made for their big day.
When asked if their nuptials are still on, the 26-year-old former flight attendant told Extra on Monday:
"Oh, gosh, the million-dollar question!"

Ben chimed in with:
"I think at this point, Lauren and I are focusing on our relationship, which is obvious. We're definitely together — we are happily engaged. The wedding in our mind — 'Where's your ring at?' — is still on, but we are just taking some time to help plan that where it's not stressful or overwhelming."
That makes sense!
Lauren pointed out that every engaged couple feels these pressures, whether they're on TV or not:
"Any couple feels the same pressures — you get engaged, and everyone asks when is the wedding. … We've navigated it relatively well and [are] doing things on our own timeline, honestly."
The 28-year-old added of their relationship being followed by cameras:
"The show is stressful, it's hard… One thing Lauren and I have learned, we really need to focus on taking time as a couple to do things … Lauren and I are processing ourselves… When it comes to having a televised wedding, there is a lot more to it than just, ‘Hey, do you want to have your wedding televised?'"
As for if children are in the couple's future, Ben replied:
"I think we need to get married first."
And Miz Bushnell shared:
"We just try to not focus on what's next and just really enjoy each other and enjoy being engaged."
We're stressed just hearing about how not stressed they're trying to be! LOLz!
Enjoy the process, you two!
