JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers are engaged (again), and fans can finally see the exact moment it happened. On Tuesday, September 24, Rodgers shared an Instagram TV video of his second proposal to the former Bachelorette. The engagement, which took place on August 24, was captured this time without TV cameras or a production crew. (Rodgers, however, came prepared with a videographer documenting the intimate moment from a concealed distance.)
“Three weeks ago I made the best decision of my life…again!” Rodgers captioned the video. Along with the footage, the SEC commentator included additional details from the day. “This proposal was just us, and let me tell you almost everything that could’ve gone wrong DID! But I wouldn’t have it any other way…IT WAS PERFECTLY IMPERFECT,” he wrote.
After secretly flying to Nashville to pick up Fletcher’s second engagement ring (an oval-cut stone set on a gold band), a delayed flight back home threatened to foil his proposal plans. The couple planned to tour a potential wedding venue the next day, where Rodgers was going to pop the question.
Despite the unexpected obstacles he faced, Rodgers made it home just in time and the proposal went off without a hitch. “Big shout out to that random lady that probably was so confused when I started my proposal but figured she better film it…you’re the real MVP!!!” he continued. “Funny how much harder this proposal thing is without 20 producers planning the whole thing!!”
The couple’s second engagement comes three years after Rodgers’s first proposal on Season 12 of The Bachelorette. Now that they’re engaged again, the duo’s wedding plans are fully underway. In addition to revealing that their wedding will take place next year, they’ve explained how their prolonged engagement has prepared them for marriage.
“We wouldn’t change it,” Fletcher previously said. “Without having those years to go through different seasons of life together and learning how to navigate through the good and the bad, I wouldn’t feel as confident. It was important for us to know that this was what we wanted for the rest of our lives. I’m happy we waited. But now we’re good to go.”
