Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell have been inseparable since the finale of ABC’s The Bachelor 2016 season aired. Ben and Lauren got engaged at that final rose ceremony and they seem head-over-heels in love. The two have been doing quite a bit traveling since they were able to go public with their relationship, and it looks like they just made another trip. Where are they now?
After doing the standard media blitz in New York after their Bachelor finale aired, Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell headed to Warsaw, Indiana, where Ben grew up. They spent time with his parents, celebrated his birthday and did some charity events for a facility very close to Higgins’ heart: the Baker Youth Club.
In a new Snapchat video, Lauren indicated that she and Ben were now in Denver, which is where Higgins lives these days. During the “After the Final Rose” special, Bushnell had said that she was going to be moving to Denver within a few weeks to be with her Bachelor beau. While it doesn’t necessarily look like she has formally moved all of her stuff from California yet, it seems she is planning to spend time with her fiance in Denver now.
Once the two landed in Denver, Lauren posted a photo to Instagram, detailing that she was glad to be home and cuddled with her guy on the couch. She and Ben are both showing off their Hope bracelets from MudLove, and Bushnell says she is glad she can finally show hers off.
Many Bachelor fans noticed Higgins wearing his bracelet throughout much of the season and now she’s got hers too. The bracelet is one Ben helped create and it benefits the Humanity & Hope United Foundation, an organization the Bachelor star has worked with for some time now.
What comes next for Ben and Lauren? From the looks of things, their plans are mostly focused on moving and settling in with one another. Though Bushnell is originally from Portland, Oregon, she has most recently been based in Marina del Rey, California. She and Higgins will seemingly be working on getting her moved to Denver and start settling.
Bushnell and Higgins will seemingly be working on getting her moved to Denver and start settling into being in the same city at last. As Bachelor fans know, their final rose ceremony was filmed last November and it is just now that their finale aired that they can start implementing plans to be together and build their life together.
Will Ben and Lauren end up getting married and having babies? This Bachelor duo says that they want to get married sooner rather than later, and they have done plenty of talking about children, as well. Higgins and Bushnell say they are not necessarily in a rush to have babies, but they are excited about building a family together. They have not started talking specifics in terms of a wedding date yet, and fans will see how things progress once the dust settles and their day-to-day life together begins.
While Ben and Lauren do seem to have some additional events and appearances lined up in the weeks ahead, it looks like they are mostly embracing the opportunity to build their life together in Denver. They may have had to navigate some rocky moments post-filming as The Bachelor aired, and they dealt with his deep feelings for Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher, but it looks like they have put all that drama behind them and are ready to look forward.
Viewers are rooting for these two to make it, and Bachelor fans cannot wait to see what comes next for Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell. Next up for the franchise is JoJo Fletcher’s Bachelorette season, which is filming now and set to premiere in May, and fans cannot wait to see how her journey to find love goes.
