Ben Higgins Responds to Rumors That He & Lauren Bushnell Called It Quits


There's a big emotional hazard when it comes to being a fan of The Bachelor: After you root for a couple to get engaged all season long, more often than not, they never make it down the aisle. But could that be happening to our 2016 Bachelor already?! This week, Ben Higgins responded to breakup rumors, and if you love him and Lauren Bushnell together, this is definitely good news. 


It goes without saying that rumors about their breakup, wedding, and everything in between have been all over the place practically since the second their Bachelor finale aired last spring. But now, the breakup reports are more rampant than ever, and even though Ben doesn't often acknowledge the hype, this time, he's taking matters into his own hands.

On Wednesday, Ben shared a sweet throwback photo of him and Lauren on vacation, alongside a caption that spells it all out for us: They are definitely still together.

Okay, how sweet is that?! We had our doubts about Ben and Lauren when they first got together. After all, his connection with JoJo was so strong, and so few Bach couples stay together. But over the past year, they've proven us wrong, and through social media and their show Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After, we've gotten to see their relationship grow. How could you not want these two to make it?!

We're glad that Ben decided to clear things up, because at least we know for sure what's going on. Unfortunately, they haven't filled us in on any new wedding details, but at least we know it's (probably) still happening?! 

Congrats to Ben and Lauren for making it this far. We know they'll go the distance!
