Star Ali Fedotowsky chose suitor Roberto Martinez to give her final rose on Monday night’s The Bachelorette finale. Ali dumped runner-up Chris Lambton right before their finale date, saying she wanted to let him down with respect — not hurt him at the final rose ceremony.
Ali told Jimmy Kimmel she “always had a really strong connection [to Roberto] from the very first night… I just had a feeling, a really strong feeling… in the end, all I wanted to do [was] see him.”
Ali and Roberto celebrated their engagement out on the town in Hollywood this week. Ali was photographed wearing her enormous platinum and diamond Neil Lane ring worth a reported $50,000.
The couple was allegedly very “lovey dovey” and “very affectionate,” a witness reportedly told Us Magazine.
“I’m a lucky man,” Martinez gushed during a Good Morning America appearance Tuesday. “I’m just looking forward to enjoying that normal life and kind of having that normalcy and enjoying each other.” Fedotowsky added in: “He said during the proposal, ‘I want every time that I’m with you to let you know that you’re so, so loved.’ And he does do that now, you know, outside the show.”
Let’s hope this Bachelorette couple can make it for the long haul!
