Another successful love story for The Bachelor franchise!

While the couples on this current season of Bachelor in Paradise are kind of floundering atm and we’re not really holding high hopes for any of them succeeding on the outside, the franchise has managed to redeem itself with a Bachie proposal!

Former Bachelor Matty J proposed to his dream girl and winner of his season Laura Byrne while on holidays, funnily enough in Fiji where BIP is filmed.

And of course, she said YES!

And luckily for us here at home it was all caught on film!

Matty J posted the footage of the romantic moment of him and his future wife standing on a secluded beach.


“There’s absolutely no one else I’d rather grow old and senile with,” he wrote in the caption. “I can’t wait to start a family together and now I can’t wait to e your husband!”

Laura also posted a few pictures from the moment on her own account, giving her followers a close up glimpse at the gorgeous ring.

“You are my favourite everything @matthewdavidjohnson,” she wrote.

“YES to a lifetime of love and flamboyant dance moves with you my honey.”


The pair are currently enjoying a relaxing holiday in Fiji on what appears to be a baby moon! The couple announced that Laura was pregnant in December last year.

They have been together since the fifth season of the Bachelor in 2017.

After getting married, the will now join other successful Bachelor couples Anna Heinrich Tim Robards and Snezana Markoski and Sam Wood who also got married after meeting on the show.


Congrats to the gorgeous couple!
