Does Ben Higgins regret picking Lauren Bushnell over JoJo Fletcher?
Ok! Magazine is reporting that the Bachelor star is having second thoughts about dumping Fletcher for Bushnell.
“Ben thinks he may have picked the wrong woman,” an inside source revealed.
Higgins gave Bushnell the final rose at the end of The Bachelor after telling Fletcher he was in love with her. Things have been rough in their relationship ever since Bushnell found out about Higgins’ feelings for Fletcher.
“Every time he has a fight with Lauren, his mind wanders back to JoJo,” the insider continued. “He questions whether he would have been happier being engaged to her.”
The situation has worsened during Fletcher’s time on The Bachelorette.
Watching Fletcher sift through her suitors has made Higgins re-think his decision and has caused old feelings to rise back up.
“Ben’s realizing he’s still very much in love with JoJo,” the source revealed. “And that those feelings may never go away.”
For her part, Bushnell is also unhappy with how things turned out. Apparently, Bushnell still hasn’t fully forgiven Higgins for telling Fletcher he loved her. In fact, the topic has become a source of insecurity for the Bachelor star.
Meanwhile, Fletcher was clearly hurt after Higgins gave her the boot, especially given his sincere profession of love.
Despite the devastation, the insider added that Fletcher is “finally at the point where she’s completely moved on from him and is ready to find herself a husband who loves her and only her.”
Although it sounds as though Higgins and Bushnell are on the verge of a breakup, Hollywood Take reports that their relationship is stronger than ever.
Not only have Higgins and Bushnell adjusted well to their new lives together, they are actively planning a wedding.
An official wedding announcement hasn’t been made, but Higgins and Bushnell have hinted that ABC might televise the ceremony for fans to enjoy.
“[Higgins and Bushnell] will get married very soon, probably this summer,” an insider explained. “It would be an ABC special.”
The Bachelor couple has already revealed some of the plans for the ceremony, including a possible guest list. While invitations haven’t been sent out just yet, they want to invite former reality stars, including Sean Lowe, Chris Soules, and even Chris Siegfried and Desiree Hartsock.
In addition to the celebrity guest list, Ben Higgins recently admitted that he wants the ceremony to be a large event.
“I want a huge reception,” he stated. “How often in life do all your friends and family gather in one room to celebrate something? Why get married tomorrow if we can plan a big ass party?”
Of course, a future wedding depends on whether or not Higgins really wants to be with Bushnell. If the rumors are true, then Higgins is trying his best to get back with Fletcher.
An inside source revealed to In Touch Weekly that Higgins and Bushnell have been growing apart in recent months. Apparently, living together has made Higgins realize that his feelings for Fletcher never went away.
As far as Fletcher is concerned, the insider revealed that she is willing to talk with Higgins. Getting back with him, however, is another matter entirely.
“Of course, if Ben reaches out to her, she’ll talk to him,” the source shared. “But I can promise you, she will never get back together with him – ever. JoJo will forever be the one.”
Fletcher is currently making her way through The Bachelorette. It is not known if her final pick will also propose to her, but it sounds like a future with Higgins is out of the question.
