She found her forever! Bachelor Nation alum Seinne Fleming is engaged to real estate agent Doug Fillmore.
“The best surprise and most amazing weekend of my life!!! I absolutely said YES to my favorite person and the sweetest man I know!” the former ABC personality, 31, captioned a series of Instagram pics from the romantic proposal on Tuesday, August 17. “I’m so excited to continue building an incredible life with you @dougfillmore_ I love you beyond words!!”
Her husband-to-be got down on one knee in Malibu. “Words can’t begin to describe this moment. What I can say is nobody has ever made me feel the way you do,” he gushed in an Instagram upload of his own. “I love you always & forever @seinnefleming .”
The couple received well-wishes from a handful of fellow Bachelor and Bachelorette alums, including Rachel Lindsay, who commented, “Congrats!!!! So happy for you!!!!”
Ashley Iaconetti, who is currently expecting her first child with Jared Haibon, also congratulated the pair on their engagement.
“Love this makes me so overwhelmingly happy!” Kendall Long added. “Congratulations to you two lovebirds .”
Fans met Fleming on Arie Luyendyk Jr.‘s season 22 of The Bachelor, which aired in 2018. The former racing driver, now 39, celebrated the California native’s major milestone, commenting, “Awesome!! About time @dougfillmore_ .”
When his search for love on the reality TV franchise concluded, the Netherlands native originally gave Becca Kufrin his final rose. However, he changed his mind, instead proposing to runner-up Lauren Burnham. The couple tied the knot in January 2019.
“FINALLY!!! love you two to pieces!” Burnham, 29, commented on Fleming’s Instagram reveal.
Luyendyk Jr. shares three children with the Virginia native: daughter Alessi, born in May 2019, and twins Senna and Lux, who arrived in June.
Last year, Fleming found herself back in the Bachelor franchise’s spotlight when she called out the show’s noticeable lack of diversity. Before her time on the series, she didn’t consider herself a “huge fan,” she told E! News in June 2020. However, she changed her tune after Lindsay, now 36, made history as the first Black Bachelorette in 2017.
“That was one of the main reasons why I ended up auditioning for the show because I thought, ‘Oh, OK, well maybe they are kind of maybe changing things up, making things a little more inclusive,'” she told E! News. “I quickly learned that was not the case. … Even during my time on the show, I was the only woman of color in the top 10 so in many ways it feels like you fill a slot.”
The franchise cast its first Black male lead, Matt James, for season 25, but Fleming still felt like the series could do more. “By not having a more diverse cast, by not having more Asians or Hispanics or Black people, you’re isolating a part of the country that would be interested in the show if they felt more represented,” she claimed last summer.
