‘The Bachelorette Reunion’: The Juicy Details We Learned About The Ladies And Where They Are Today
“The Bachelorette Reunion” took place this week and we got to catch up with some of our favorite ladies. The event was a little emotional for some of the women.
“It was more emotional than I thought it would be. There are only 15 of us in the world who can say we know what it’s like to be the Bachelorette and that’s pretty special,” said Kaitlyn Bristowe.
In addition to the heartfelt moments, there were some pretty juicy deets spilled (Becca Kufrin and her final pick, Garrett Yrigoyen, broke the bed during their fantasy suite date HEYO).
Here’s what we learned about our former Bachelorettes from the reunion.
Trista, the OG Bachelorette, is still married to her final rose pick, Ryan Sutter. Together, the two have a son (Maxwell, 11) and a daughter (Blakesley, 10). Sutter sweetly spoke about the experience of meeting the love of her life on the show and later televising their wedding.
DeAnna, in a soap-opera-fitting storyline, met her husband, Stephen Stagliano, because his twin, Michael Stagliano, went on season five of The Bachelorette (DeAnna’s season was season 4). DeAnna says she knew she wanted to marry her husband after two weeks of knowing him. Today, the couple has a daughter (Addison, 5) and a son (Austin, 3).
Jillian’s final rose pick, Ed Swiderski, might not have worked out (according to her, he had several girlfriends back at home), but her post-Bachelorette business ventures are thriving. Today, she hosts Love It or List It Vancouver and has her own necklace and romper lines. Her long-time partner is Justin Pasutto, who she has a son (Leo, 2) and daughter (Annie, 7) with.
Ali is happily married to her long-time-friend-turned-romantic partner, Kevin Manno. The two have a daughter (Molly, 2) and a son (Riley, 11) together. She takes pride in being a motherly figure for new Bachelorettes. She also revealed that she went on a date with season 6 contestant, Frank Neuschaefer, after her engagement with Roberto Martinez ended and the two were “romantic” for an evening.
Ashley says she is currently the happiest she’s ever been. Another Bachelorette success story, she married her final rose choice, J.P. Rosenbaum, in 2012. The couple has a son (Fordham, 4) and daughter (Essex, 2).
Emily shared that she experiences feelings of inadequacy in terms of her career, especially compared to other former Bachelorettes, but that she loves being a mom. She’s married to Tyler Johnson, who she met at church, and has three sons with him (Jennings, 3, Gibson, 2, and Gatlin, 17 months), and a 13-year-old daughter, Ricki, with her late fiancé, Ricky Hendrick.
Hartsock is still married to her final rose pick, Chris Siegfried. The couple has two sons (Asher, 2 and Zander, 3 months). Chris would love to have a girl, but has been open about not wanting another child.
Andi is a New York Times best-selling author with It’s Not Okay and Single State of Mind. She split from her fiancé, Josh Murray, in 2015 and currently lives in New York.
Kaitlyn is one of the better-known Bachelorettes of the franchise thanks to her podcast, scrunchie line, and wine label. She split from her final rose pick, Shaw Booth, in 2018, but calls the relationship “successful” because it lasted three and a half years. Today she’s with Becca’s former contestant, Jason Tartick (she asked Becca if it was OK before going for it).
JoJo revealed that she was so exhausted at her first rose ceremony that she projectile vomited everywhere. She’s still engaged to her final rose choice, Jordan Rodgers. The couple renovates homes together, which will be featured in an upcoming CNBC series. She also has her own clothing line.
Rachel talked a lot about her upcoming wedding with her fiancé, Bryan Abasolo. The two plan to hold the ceremony in the Caribbean in August. Rachel also spoke about the special Bachelor tradition of picking out the couple’s Neil Lane wedding bands and celebrating with a Bachelor Nation bridal shower.
She also revealed that when she was The Bachelorette she got her best night of sleep during her fantasy suite date with Nick Viall (LOL).
Finally, we have Becca-broke-the-bed Kufrin. She is still with her final rose choice and fellow bed breaker, Garrett. She spoke about wanting to get a dog with her fiancé, preferably a corgi.
