“Ellen, you are the greatest joy in my life. The opportunity to spend so much time with you has taught me a lot,” the 28-year-old winner of the 15th season of The Bachelor shared on Instagram on Sunday, July 17, confirming the couple’s engagement. “First of all, our ability to cope with difficult situations was very impressive. We never turn and run from each other, we face life face to face and sort it out.”

He added: “We had people who doubted us and we laughed. We had days when we drove each other crazy and we always came back to the solution. Our roots go back to a love deeper than anything I could ever pray for.”

The country singer, who announced his relationship with 26—year-old Decker in November 2019, asked this question on Friday, July 15, in Franklin, Tennessee.

“It turns out that spending a few months knowing that you’re going to propose to the woman of your dreams can be expensive. But every possible second of struggle that led to this moment was worth it,” Wyatt continued in his social media post. “Ellen is the coolest, funniest, funniest, down-to-earth, hardworking, healthiest food, chores, long walks, a breath of fresh air I’ve ever met. The facts are as follows: I don’t remember what I said there, standing on one knee, but with tears in her eyes, Ellen Decker said yes to me. I’m thrilled to be able to spend this life with you.”

 

In conclusion, he said: “I will love you, protect you, support you and buy you an infinite number of sprinklers. Waking up next to this ring on your hand the last couple of days has been one of the happiest feelings I’ve experienced in my life. You deserve all this, Ellen.”

Wyatt proposed to a fitness trainer during her birthday celebration, where they were quickly celebrated by his fellow Bachelor Nation alumni.

“Hurrah! So happy for you two,” commented Hannah Godwin. Her fiance Dylan Barbour, for his part, added: “Let’s go!”

The show’s alumni Garrett Powell and Luke Stone also responded to the congratulations of the newly-made couple.

Before Wyatt met Decker, he made a notable appearance on Hannah Brown’s “Season of the Bachelor.” After accepting the 27-year-old author’s last rose, “God Bless this Mess” and proposing marriage in the 2019 finale, he soon came under fire after being accused of having a girlfriend at his house during filming. Brown, who has since moved on to Adam Woolard, eventually broke off their engagement during the season finale.

“I think we [had to] both go through this,” the reality TV graduate said of his former engagement during an October 2021 appearance on the Reality Show with Kate Casey podcast. “It sucks… but it really wouldn’t have made me who I am today [without it].”
