Reality tv star Ben Higgins is in a loving relationship, the Bachelor’s star is regularly seen gushing over his new girlfriend, Jessica Clarke, on Instagram. Jessica, 24, is a graduate from the University of Mississippi and is currently residing in Nashville. Fans still remember the finale of the show’s 20th season back in 2016, as Higgins proposed to Lauren Bushnell.
The latter is now engaged as Higgins congratulated her and wished her the best. Coming back to Higgins’ new romance, the star explained the events leading to a relationship. He didn’t hold back as he openly admitted ‘sliding into her dms’ (talked to her via messaging on Instagram) a few months back. He feels glad about taking the risk and is over the moon, he wrote in a post on Instagram. The couple are currently in a long distance relationship. Ben admitted back in June that they are discussing their relationship as they plan to end the long distance gap by August, 2019. Questions are on the table as August is about to end, maybe an announcement is on the cards?
The couple also attended Jared Haibon and Ashely Jaconetti’s wedding, and it seems Higgins is seeing wedding ties already. He expressed his excitement about his relationship blossoming into marriage and that seeing someone get hitched has given him a wedding bug as well. Ben also expressed his fascination seeing, “two people walk into marriage with such a positivity to it, such a confidence.”
Hopefully, this will turn into a long and beautiful union!
