Shawn and Kaitlyn met during season 19 of The Bachelorette. He beat future Bachelor Nick Viall to win Kaitlyn’s heart. Fans began to wonder if there was trouble in the couple’s relationship when Kaitlyn spent August in Canada with her family while Shawn stayed behind at their Nashville home.

Since the split, an insider told People the couple broke up because Kaitlyn “wants to be married and have kids.” “But it didn’t seem like they were on the same page,” the source claimed, adding that although Kaitlyn is “devastated,” they are still “on good terms.”
