She won his final rose.  

“Bachelorette” star Garrett Yrigoyen announced his engagement to Alex Farrar on Oct. 2 via Instagram.

“Our engagement was exactly how I imagined it,” Yrigoyen, 33, captioned the post, where he could be seen getting down on one knee during a romantic boat ride in San Diego, Calif.  

“I love you so much Alexandra. I can’t wait to spend forever with you lil Al.”

Farrar also celebrated the milestone moment in a social media post of her own. 

“When two become one,” the yoga instructor wrote alongside a pic of the pair smiling at the camera followed by a closeup of her gorgeous diamond ring.

“I love you Garrett Vincent Yrigoyen,” she added. “I want all of you forever, everyday. HECK YES I WILL MARRY YOU!!!!”

Yrigoyen’s Bachelor Nation friends showered him with love in the comments section of his post. 

“Congrats,” Luke Pell wrote, while Chase McNary added, “Yea sir!! Welcome to the club! Congrats y’all!”

The couple began dating in November 2020 and made their relationship Instagram-official the following February.

Yrigoyen’s proposal to Farrar comes two years after he asked for “Bachelorette” Season 14 lead Becca Kufrin’s hand in marriage. 

In 2018, as his “Bachelorette” journey was unfolding, Yrigoyen was called out for “liking” Instagram posts that mocked undocumented immigrants, the trans community, liberal feminists, and that spread misinformation about Parkland, Fla., shooting survivor David Hogg.

Yrigoyen later apologized. 

He and Kufrin eventually split in September 2020, largely because of Yrigoyen’s support for the pro-police Blue Lives Matter movement that coincided with the Black Lives Matter movement. 

Yrigoyen split from Becca Kufrin in 2020, two years after getting engaged on “The Bachelorette” Season 14.
