Kaitlyn Bristowe & Shawn Booth Share Update on the Status of Their Engagement

By this long after the finale, most Bachelorette relationships have totally tanked -- but not for Shawn Booth and Kaitlyn Bristowe. These two are still engaged and stronger than ever. Don't believe us? Kaitlyn and Shawn gave an update on their relationship recently, and it seems like things are going really well between them.


While talking to People, Kaitlyn and Shawn revealed that although they're now living in a house together in Nashville and "enjoying being engaged," they haven't started planning their wedding yet. It makes sense -- in the grand scheme of things, they've known each other for less than a year, so it can't hurt to take things slowly! 

And in case you were wondering if Kaitlyn's planning on taking Shawn's name after their wedding, the answer is yes -- we have a Kaitlyn Booth in our future. She said:

We call ourselves the Boothstowes. But when I get married, I'm going to take his name. I'm not a traditional person, but when it comes to that, I like the idea of being traditional. I think it's romantic.

Despite the many breakup rumors that have surfaced since their Bachelorette finale, it sounds like they're still very much in love and looking forward to their future together. Kaitlyn admitted that aside from Shawn getting his hair all over the sink when he shaves, there have been no disagreements. Impressive! 

"I love Shawn more now than the day he proposed," Kaitlyn told the mag. "That was like a fantasy love. Now it's real."

How adorable is that?! We're so glad to hear that they're doing well. With the breakup rate in Bachelor Nation, it's refreshing to hear that this couple is getting it right.
