Looking forward to processing the last 24 hours of this incredible life at 35,000 ft #ToKavAndToHold.”

For his part, Kavanagh wrote, “Been waiting a very long time for this special moment @lesleyannemurphy.

“Life is pretty crazy when all the stars align and the right person comes into your life at the right time just when you need it. Never give up on love,” he added.

BACHELOR NATION COUPLES WHO CALLED IT QUITS (SO FAR) IN 2020

It’s no surprise that the Road Les Traveled blogger — who previously dated Dean Unglert after they both appeared on Bachelor Winter Games — has a bun in the oven since she contemplated getting pregnant earlier this year. “It sucks delaying it,” she told Life & Style about her wedding plans. “I was already so [ready] for a short engagement anyway. Now, it’s like should we have a baby first? I mean, I don’t really care, I’m so nontraditional anyways, why not?”

Well, it seems like everything is just rosy for Murphy these days!
