A Bachelorette no more, Ashley Hebert got engaged to J.P. Rosenbaum on the August 1st finale of their hit ABC show.
Now, she tells People magazine:
"I've never even looked back for a second on my decision."
Ashley also reveals their relationship didn't "really" begin until after the show wrapped:
"Our relationship really started after we left the show. The show made us stronger than if we'd met on the outside."
Watching his bride-to-be get close with other contestants wasn't easy for Rosenbaum, but open communication helped keep their bond strong:
"You make it through something like this together, you can make it through anything."
