After some of the most dramatic footage in Bachelor history, Colton Underwood finally got his heart’s desire to be with contestant Cassie.
Despite her decision to break up with him on last week’s episode, Cassie eventually decided to take Colton back and the two have been keeping their relationship a secret for the last four months.
Now that the season is finally over, the two lovebirds are on the cover of People Magazine telling the world about their love.
“We’re so excited to be out in public and not have to hide anymore,” Underwood, 27, said “I’m so in love, and I’m ready for everyone to know it.”
Cassie echoed his excitement by adding, “We can finally be outwardly happy, and not have to keep this big secret.”
On Monday night’s episode, Underwood dumped the two other prospective girlfriends, Tayshia and Hannah G all because he said he wanted to follow his heart.
“I know there’s a certain format that comes along with being The Bachelor,” Underwood said of the surprise breakups. “But this was about the rest of my life. And I couldn’t risk giving Cassie up.”
