'Bachelor' star Kendall Long and Mitchell Sage are engaged

Kendall Long finally accepted the final rose.

The “Bachelor” Nation star announced she and her boyfriend, Mitchell Sage, got engaged on Tuesday after nine months of dating.

“We’re engaged!! 💍✨ It’s always been a HECK YES with you Mitch 🥰,” the 31-year-old captioned a series of photos from the proposal on Instagram. “I love your brain, I love your family, I pretty much just love every single thing about you!” 

She continued, “I’ve heard love explained to me by my parents and was scared I would never experience something so wonderful. But with you, love is so much better than I could have ever imagined it to be. I feel so lucky and I can’t wait to officially be a Sagely 💕.”

The pair, who recently moved to Germany, met through mutual friends in December 2021 before taking their relationship to the next level in February 2022.

Two months later, the twosome made things Instagram-official when Long posted a series of snaps cozied up to her beau, telling her followers, “By the way, I’m in love.”

The “Just Curious: A Notebook of Questions” author appeared on Arie Luyendyk Jr.’s season of “The Bachelor” back in 2018. After getting sent home, she appeared on Season 5 of “Bachelor in Paradise” where she met Joe Amabile.

However, the pair called it quits after nearly two years together — only to head back to “Paradise” for Season 7 of the reality show.

While Joe ended up getting engaged — and is now married — to Serena Pitt, Long left the beach without a ring or relationship.

Despite the failed attempts at love on TV, Long said dating under such strange circumstances helped her get to the place she is now.

“It’s weird because when I was on the show, I was almost, like, a commitment-phobe or I was afraid of marriage and afraid of all that happening,” she said on Us Weekly’s “Here For the Right Reasons” podcast back in May.

“But the show really taught me a lot [about] actually being able to visualize my future and wanting marriage and talking about wanting marriage.”
