In a realm where “pics or it didn’t happen” reigns supreme when it also comes to relationships, former Bachelor contestant, Lauren Bushnell is proving she and her new beau are now Instagram official.
The once fiancé of Bachelor star, Ben Higgins shared a new snap of her and love, Devin Antin on Saturday with the caption, “Dibs,” a lyric assumedly pulled from Kelsea Ballerini’s song of the same name.
The blogger of “Sparkle in Her Eye” spoke to Entertainment Tonight on Thursday, sharing how she’s been doing since her very public split from Higgins. Despite their breakup though, she reveals the two don’t have any “bad blood,” and she is now extra protective of her new relationship with Antin.
“I have nothing negative to say about Ben. He’s such a good person. There’s nothing wrong with him at all,” she said. “He did nothing wrong, I did nothing wrong, it’s just more like… sometimes it doesn’t work, and the pressure [of getting married] obviously is an added element. But I don’t think that’s necessarily what caused a breakup.”
When it comes to Antin though, she’s very protective and says it’s because he is someone she has known for quite some time.
“We had a friendship established before I even went on The Bachelor. When you go through a breakup, for me, at least, that was the last thing on my mind,” she said. “I wanted to just take the time to, like, take a deep breath and think back on things that happened and just kind of reset a little bit.”
She goes on to add that it wasn’t a relationship that was planned, it was just friendship.
“Because of that friendship first, I’m also very protective of it,” she said. “So, I haven’t really shared a lot about it, but I’m very happy.”
