Congratulations to Raven Gates and Adam Gottschalk of Bachelor in Paradise. Raven has made it Instagram official that Adam proposed to her on Friday, May 31, 2019. The couple began dating on season four of Bachelor in Paradise.
Nick Viall had sent Raven home after the fantasy suite date on Season 21 of The Bachelor in 2017, while Adam appeared on Rachel Lindsay’s season of The Bachelorette the same year.
Rachel had even predicted that of all the guys from her season, Raven would click with Adam. Which worked out really well for everyone since Rachel had told Raven, “Don’t mess with my top three.”
Raven Gates began their season of Bachelor in Paradise on a date with Robby from JoJo Fletcher’s Bachelorette season. In episode three, she and Adam went on a date and hit it off. But not so fast! The pairing-off is never as easy as it might seem in Paradise. On episode four, Sarah Vendal, also from Nick Viall’s season, showed up and took Adam on a date. A few episodes later, Adam wormed his way out of this love triangle by giving a rose to Raven — and from then on they seemed solid. They left Paradise not engaged but “as a couple.”
During the Jan. 24 episode of the Off the Vine Podcast With Kaitlyn Bristowe, Kaitlyn Bristowe asked Raven, “Why are you guys not married? I want to be involved.”
Raven told the former Bachelorette, “I think that’s coming soon. We’re going to the temple this Friday to have interfaith counseling [about] family, engagement, and children.” Raven is Christian and Adam is Jewish.
Prior to now, the couple has been vocal that they do not want to have a televised wedding.
Many of Bachelor Nation’s fan favorites congratulated the newly engaged couple in the Instagram comments section:
“Omgomgomg YES love this and love you two,” wrote Bachelorette alum Kaitlyn Bristowe, who is dating Jason Tartick.
“Adam did good on that ring,” new dad Arie Luyendyk Jr. commented on Gates’ post while he said, “Congrats you two!” on Gottschalk’s post.
“Yay!!! So happy for you guys!” former Bachelorette Joelle Fletcher wrote.
And Wells Adams expressed his congratulations, commenting: “Congrats Ravsies!”
The couple joins Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon as a soon-to-be-wed Bachelor in Paradise success story. And Jade and Tanner Tolbert, along with Carly and Evan Bass, remain happily married with kids after falling in love on Bachelor in Paradise.
We’re can’t wait to see if any more super couples will emerge from this season of Bachelor in Paradise which premieres on Monday, July 29, 2019.
