On last night’s season finale of The Bachelor on ABC, Jake Pavelka picked this season’s most hated contestant — and new Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky‘s biggest enemy — Vienna Girardi, as his soon-to-be wife. The controversial couple was beyond giddy this morning on the phone as they spoke to OK! about their engagement and their plans as a newly-engaged couple. “We are just going to take everything slow,” Jake, 31, tells OK.! “I think that you can really add a lot of unnecessary pressure to something beautiful by rushing.”
The new Dancing With The Stars contestant proposed to the ex-Hooter’s waitress on the island of St. Lucia with a jaw-dropping and beautiful 2.72 carat Neil Lane diamond ring, which was custom designed for his proposal.
“I want to date my fiancée for a little while,” he explains. “I want to chase her naked!”
Apparently, when you’re in love, you do want to shout it from the top of mountains — and share a little too much information with the rest of the world as they’re obviously enjoying every second of it.
“Right now we are in this puppy love phase,” Jake gushes. “If you’re really good at it, it can last six months… I am just trying to solidify the next 60 years of our lives.”
Even though that bauble has been freshly placed on her finger, Vienna, 23, already has a game plan in mind for her and Jake’s union.
“Wedding date wise, we are thinking at least a year or two,” she explains. “And kids? I don’t know four or five years — at least.”
But Jake — who is eight years her senior — has more of an Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz “happy surprise” [referring totheir son, Bronx] scenario in mind.
“But you never know what’s going to happen by accident!” he tells her. “It would be a blessing.”
Vienna replies with a soft-spoken: “It would.”
Oh my gosh, get these two a room already!
