US Weekly tells us Ashley Salter is engaged to her college sweetheart Austin Brannen. That’s right! Not to be outdone by Ali Fedotwosky’s baby announcement and engagement, Ashley Salter, 25, was close on her heels. Wipe it out in one fell swoop — that’s the way these Bachelor old timers are doing it these days. It is all or nothing! This also comes closely behind Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici’s baby announcement. Babies all around! I hope they all take simultaneous lamaze classes and have little tiny Bachelor playdates. Jimmy Kimmel’s Baby Bachelor spinoff doesn’t seem so far off now does it?
Ashley S. announced the engagement over Instagram with the most clever caption: 12 is better than 1 rose. Oh snap, son. How you like dem onions, Bachelor Nation?
Bustle wants you to send a congratulatory basket of onions, but I would argue for a nice assortment of onions and pomegranates, spread the love.
I really hope the reception is at the Mesa Verde. With paint ball guns. And zombies. And Chris Soules.
In all seriousness, congrats to the happy couple!
Also, fun fact. Anyone remember Erica Rose? Let me jog your memory. She was on Season 9 of The Bachelor with Prince Lorenzo and then again on Bachelor Pad twice, tiara-clad. Erica Rose, 32, is expecting as well! Babies all around. Erica Rose is not engaged, but considers herself engaged to Galen Gentry. They met at Gentry Law Group where he is an attorney and she is in charge of business development.
You will see them and Ali and a bunch of other Bachelor/ette couples appearing on the Valentine’s Day special of Jade and Tanner’s nuptials. So much love to go around. It must be that time for Bachelor/ette babies.
