Former “Bachelorette” Ali Fedotowsky has had to put her wedding plans with fiancé Roberto Martinez on hold while she recovers from a kickboxing injury to her femur, for which she underwent surgery in July.
“We had a date set, and that date has now passed. The decision to postpone was very difficult. I definitely shed some tears,” the 26-year-old reality star explained to PEOPLE magazine on Tuesday adding, “I want to walk down the aisle. I don’t want to limp down the aisle.”
Although Ali and Roberto had to push back the big day, that didn’t prevent them from spending their would-be wedding day together.
“It was one of the best days we’ve had, just me and him,” Fedotowsky revealed. “In my mind, Roberto is my husband. We live together; we do everything together; we plan for the future together; we fight just like a good old married couple. The only thing that’s not saying ‘I’m married’ is another ring on my finger and a piece of paper.”
Fedotowsky and Martinez met and got engaged during the sixth season of ABC’s hit show, The Bachelorette. They currently live in San Diego, CA.
