Ben Higgins is setting the record straight after rumors that him and Lauren Bushnell are calling it quits on their marriage plans.

The 26-year-old, who met his fiance during season 20 of The Bachelor, exclusively revealed to if their engagement is off.

Speculation that the two split became even stronger after their reality series, Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After, was cancelled, as Bachelor co-stars Emily and Haley Ferguson stole their spot on the show. During the finale, the pair made matters worse when the cameras captured them calling off their wedding due to relationship "issues."

Higgins put the rumors to bed in an Instagram post on Wednesday with a sweet snap posing with Lauren.“We have entered into a world where rumors will exist we know that, but just know as @laurenbushnell celebrates her birthday tomorrow I am still extremely lucky to be able to share life with her and be by her side,” he wrote as a caption alongside the image.
