As Ashley started crying, Jared said, "Isn't it crazy, three years ago we met right at this spot on this very beach. I love you so much... You've always been there for me You're everything to me."
Later getting down on one knee and taking out a stunning diamond ring, he continued, You'd make me the happiest man alive if I got the opportunity to spend the rest of my life with you. So, Ashley, will you marry me?"
She screamed, "Yes! You're my soulmate and I love you."
The proposal was certainly heartwarming and lovely, and awkwardly, it's just happened right in front of Kevin.
Ashley and Kevin had announced their split to Entertainment Tonight back in May. In early August, Kevin had accused Ashley of cheating on him with Jared on the Bachelor in Paradise's premiere episode of this season.
Shortly after that, Ashley addressed the cheating allegation during her Almost Famous podcast, admitting that she and Jared shared a kiss before breaking up with Kevin.
She said at the time,
Jared came out with his feelings, and he kissed me in the airport. We had mentioned this before, I admitted that I was dating Kevin and Jared kissed me. That is true. And whether you call that cheating, that is up to you, by most definitions it is. It was just one of those moments of passion. He pulled me in and I kissed him back, yes, but I never kissed him again until Kevin and I broke up.
Congratulations Jared and Ashley!
