Love is in the air!

This year’s bachelor, Ben Higgins is officially off the market, and he can’t keep his hands off his new fiance!

People reports:

Higgins proposed to flight attendant Lauren Bushnell with a 4.25 carat Neil Lane ring on the show’s finale Monday night.

“Everything that happened led me to Lauren,” Higgins tells PEOPLE exclusively in this week’s cover story. “I couldn’t be happier.”

The business analyst, 27, fell hard for 26-year-old Bushnell on night one.

His feelings grew stronger even as he grew close to runner up, real estate developer JoJo Fletcher, 25, eventually telling both women he was in love with them.
