Bachelor in Paradise’s Ashley Iaconetti Reveals If She and Jared Haibon Would Get Married on TV

Much of Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon‘s love story has played out on the small screen — so it only makes sense that their wedding probably will, too.

The newly engaged Iaconetti opened up about the couple’s relationship and plans for the future on the latest episode of iHeartRadio’s Ben and Ashley I Almost Famous podcast, and it’s safe to say they’re fully basking in the honeymoon phase.

“Since we’ve been dating in March, we haven’t had any sort of fight,” she revealed. “I feel like Jared and I kind of did it in reverse. We had all our challenges — as not a couple — in the beginning, and now we’ve entered this honeymoon phase which is so weird, because normally the honeymoon phase happens for Bachelor couples on the show, which it was definitely not for us.”

The Bachelor in Paradise alum also confirmed that their engagement will play out on the upcoming season 5 this summer. As for whether she saw the proposal coming?

“I had an inkling — I was like, 50/50,” she said. “I thought it was going to happen for a couple of weeks leading up to it, and then the week of everyone was throwing me off. So I knew that Jared would ask my dad — he always said he would ask my dad — but I talked to my parents and they were like, ‘Ashley, he did not call.’ Total straight faces. He did call; my parents are apparently really good actors. So is my sister!”

Now, Iaconetti says she’s “the happiest ever” — and is anxiously awaiting her Neil Lane ring to get sized.

“Oh my god — it’s perfect, perfect, perfect,” she gushed. “It’s exactly what I always imagined on my finger. Jared and my sister kind of worked together on putting it together.”

And last but not least, Iaconetti confirmed that she and Haibon are definitely interested in televising their nuptials — under one condition.

“I think we’re both down , but our caveat is that we want as many guests as we want and we don’t want to be limited to that,” she said. “So I think if we couldn’t have it the way we imagined is the only reason we wouldn’t do it. We want it!”

Season 5 of Bachelor in Paradise premieres Aug. 7 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

Inside Bachelor in Paradise’s Tanner and Jade Roper Tolbert’s Life as New Parents

Jade Roper Tolbert and husband Tanner Tolbert are taking new parenthood in stride.

The reality stars, who fell in love on season 2 of Bachelor in Paradise, welcomed their daughter Emerson “Emmy” Avery in August and now reveal to PEOPLE the ways their lives — and marriage — have shifted.

“It changes your priorities in life and makes you think of things a little differently,” says Tolbert, 30. “Watching Jade be a mom has been pretty awesome.”

Adds Roper Tolbert, 31, “I love being a mom. We’ve been enjoying just being new parents and every new thing is so exciting for us. She’s a little treasure.”

Of their 6-month-old’s most recent milestones, the couple says she has started eating solid foods, rolling over, making consonant sounds and teething. They also took her traveling for the first time in January on a trip to St. Lucia.

“It was awesome, but in hindsight, we probably should’ve brought my mom or someone to babysit so we could have a little bit of alone time because that was tough,” Tolbert says.

Finding alone time to spend together in general is tough for the two these days, but Tolbert says that luckily his mom moved back to Kansas City, Missouri, and has become their “resident babysitter.”

“If we do date nights, it’s something easy like a movie where we’re gone for a couple hours and then we always just end up talking about her anyway,” Roper Tolbert says as her husband adds, “The first date we went on, we went to a movie and Jade started crying.”

“That was when she was really little,” Roper Tolbert explains. “She was maybe 4 weeks old and the hormones, they get you. Now it’s nice.”

Roper Tolbert’s next trip will include a visit to see her fellow Bachelor in Paradise alum and best friend Carly Waddell at the end of March so she and Emerson can meet Waddell and husband Evan Bass‘ new baby girl, Isabella Evelyn, whom they welcomed on Feb. 15.

“We’ll get to meet her baby and see if they’re little besties,” she says. “It has been fun being able to relate to her because not a lot of my friends have babies yet.”

As to how Roper Tolbert thinks Waddell will be as a mom, she says, “I know she’ll do great,” adding, “Even what I’ve seen so far, you can already tell she has taken on motherhood so gracefully.”

Like Waddell and Bass, the Tolberts tied the knot in a televised ceremony in Mexico in February 2016. One day, they plan on sharing the story of how they met with Emerson.

“She’s the first Paradise baby,” Roper Tolbert says. “She has her own little Instagram account and so a lot of it has to do with that. I feel like someday she’s going to want to know, ‘Why are all of these people following me?’ We’ll have to eventually share the story.”

Whether they would let her go on one of The Bachelor franchises like her parents, Tolbert says, “I don’t know if the show will be around that long but if she wanted to, who are we to say no? It’d be pretty hypocritical of us if we told her no.”

“I would like to say, ‘No, I wouldn’t let her go on the show,’ ” Roper Tolbert says. “But also, if that was something she was really interested in doing, then I would support her.”

Despite their busy new lives as parents, Tolbert is working on getting rid of his “dad bod” with Nutrisystem For Men.

“I didn’t even realize that I had gained some weight during her pregnancy because I never used a scale or anything like that,” he says. “I wear a lot of sweatpants. I started Nutrisystem and lost 16 pounds in six weeks. I’m back to my normal weight and feeling a lot better.”

Plus, their life might get even busier soon, as they both want additional kids. “We’re definitely going to at least try to have some more,” Tolbert says. “We’re debating between three and four right now.”

Roper Tolbert agrees. “He wants that boy so if the next one’s a boy, then we’re probably going to have three.”
