Becca Kufrin got engaged to Garrett Yrigoyen on Monday night’s drama filled finale of The Bachelorette season 14.
In an interview with PEOPLE, our Bachelorette opens up about her future with Garrett.
“Garrett is one of the only people [with whom] right away, I felt 100 percent me,” she tells People. “The best way I can describe it is if you have a puzzle and it’s two pieces that match correctly and it just clicks into place.”
“I knew I loved Becca so much that I didn’t want her to not be a part of my life,” Garrett adds. “If I learned anything from [my marriage] it was to always be honest, open and transparent. That’s how it will always be with us.”
“I was more afraid with him because he had been married,” Becca continues. “I really wanted to make sure that he was 100 percent in. He did take things slower than the other guys. And that was something he was never hiding the fact of, which I appreciated. I didn’t want him to feel any pressure. When he actually was able to say it, I knew that he meant it.”
“The moment I knew I loved him hit me like a ton of bricks. I knew if I [held it] until the very last day, it would mean so much more. Seeing his face the moment I said it made everything worth it!”
The Bachelorette couple will move in together in Los Angeles.
“It’ll be fun to live somewhere that neither of us have before and then put down roots after that,” Becca says. “I love the city. He loves being outdoors. We’ll find a happy medium!”
“I’m not going to doubt that there’s going to be challenges. But [our life] is going to be so full of laughter, so full of love, so full of respect. Everything that I’ve ever wanted in a partner, [Garrett] has. It’s going to be a good life.”
