Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell are now adjusting to life outside The Bachelor and things are looking great for the couple. They fell in love on reality television and now they have to see if they can make it work. ET got the chance to talk to a source about Ben and Lauren to find out how things are going for them now. The two are living in Denver, where Ben is from, and getting used to life that is not a reality show. The source shared that Ben and Lauren are very much in love and will be one of the few couples that make it from the show. Lauren moved there right away so that she could focus on their relationship.
When it comes to The Bachelor, a lot of couples can’t make it work when they are back in the real world. You don’t get fantasy dates anymore and you see what the person is like when a camera isn’t following them everywhere. Things are a lot harder than they realized it would be for them. During Ben and Lauren’s first date in Denver, they actually got stuck in an elevator. Now they are seeing how things are in the real world for sure.
On Friday night, Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell went out to Bar Dough to have dinner with Ben’s friends and a source said it looked like Lauren was fitting in well with them. She is learning what life is like in Denver. They also went to a cooking class at Cook Street in downtown Denver recently. They made ravioli, steak, and a heart-shaped birthday cake. A source said that they seemed very lovely together, even though the cameras were not around to be watching them.
Now Ben and Lauren were seen outside of Home Depot in the car, sitting there. They were there for about 30 minutes and it did appear they were having an argument of some kind. All couples deal with this kind of thing and Ben and Lauren went into the store shortly after and seemed fine. Having a small disagreement just shows they are being a real couple. Their relationship is one reason that Ben Higgins didn’t join the show Dancing With the Stars. You never know if he will end up doing the show another season. Ben has made it pretty obvious this relationship is important to him and not long ago spoke out about it.
“There is one main goal for me now, and that’s us, and I think right now, Lauren and I being together is my main concern. I don’t think adding too much more to that right now is the right thing.”
E! Online also shared that Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell spent time together over Easter. They were with Ben’s family in Indiana and it looked like they all had a great time. They went to church and also went to an event for the Baker Youth Club of Warsaw. Ben did share more of what he wants them to do.
“I think most of our days will consist of right now a lot of ‘Us Time. We need that in the public and just going out to dates and going out to dinner and going grocery shopping is something she really wants to do.”
Are you surprised to hear that Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell are still together? Do you think that this couple has what it takes to make it work? Sound off in the comments below and don’t miss The Bachelorette when it starts airing in May on ABC.
