Bachelorette lovebirds Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth are finally able to be open about their relationship now that the show is over and they’re not holding back. After a whirlwind media blitz post-finale, the two are spending a lot of time together and seemingly doing well. Kaitlyn and Shawn are currently together in her hometown of Vancouver in Canada, and it seems they’re all smiles.
People shares some shots of Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth paddle boarding at Vancouver’s Jericho Beach. Though the couple got engaged while filming the final rose ceremony in California in May, it has only been a couple of weeks since they could be seen publicly together. They’ve talked about being anxious to just be a regular couple and for now it seems that means spending time near Bristowe’s family and home.
According to the Daily Mail, Kaitlyn and Shawn arrived in Vancouver on Tuesday. They were spotted out paddle boarding on Wednesday, and the two smooched as Bristowe flashed her gorgeous engagement ring. Cameras caught not only their lake excursion but their arrival at the airport when they initially made their way to Canada was caught on video as well.
After spending some time in Vancouver, Kaitlyn and Shawn say they plan to head to Nashville, Tennessee, where Shawn now lives. Bristowe has shared that while they have yet to make any serious plans for the future, she can envision them settling down together in Nashville and having a vacation home in Vancouver.
There are said to be no wedding plans in the works yet, though Kaitlyn told People that they “can’t wait” to get married. However, they’re not putting pressure on themselves and they’re not in a rush. They’ve talked about their excitement over having kids, with Bristowe hoping for four kids eventually and Booth upping the ante by saying he’d like five.
Bachelorette fans are hoping that this love story ends with a wedding and babies, but for now it seems that Kaitlyn and Shawn are just embracing their new engagement and having fun. There has been a lot of buzz that Bristowe may head to Season 21 of Dancing with the Stars, much like Chris Soules, Sean Lowe, Melissa Rycroft, and Trista Sutter have done in past seasons. However, for now that’s just speculation, and the official DWTS cast announcement is still a couple of weeks away.
Will Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth end up getting married? Bachelorette fans are anxious to see what the future holds for the couple. In the meantime, “Bachelor Nation” fans are throwing themselves into Season 2 of Bachelor in Paradise right now, and everybody is anxious for confirmation that Bristowe cast-off Ben Higgins will be the Bachelor 2016 lead this winter as the buzz seemingly indicates.
