Don’t worry, Bachelor Nation, JoJo Fletcher and her fiancé Jordan Rodgers are still going strong! The former Bachelorette took to Instagram to share a sweet post for her man on his 30th birthday, and it’s too darn cute.
“30 years ago today, my person came into this world,” she gushed on Aug. 30. “☺️ HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY LOVE! @jrodgers11 (FYI babe, my first caption got super emo so I thought I’d spare everyone and put it in your card instead. K love you bye) #goldenbirthdayboy. Everyone go show him some bday love today!! ??”

Jordan popped the question more than two years ago now, and they’re clearly in no rush to walk down the aisle. So why hasn’t the couple set a wedding date yet? According to a source who spoke exclusively with In Touch, JoJo “blamed their busy schedules” for not moving forward with wedding plans. That said, they also claimed there could be trouble in paradise. “The passion just isn’t there. It’s so obvious,” the insider said. On top of that, the source reported that Jordan and JoJo seemed distant at her Fletch clothing line launch party on June 27. “Jordan was wandering around mingling and being social with everyone except JoJo,” the insider shared. “One of the guests he couldn’t stop talking to was a leggy blonde — the complete opposite of JoJo.”
Earlier this year, JoJo gushed about marrying Jordan to Us Weekly and said she “always definitely” thinks about it. “We talk about it all the time. But I think right now, we’re still just enjoying our life and we’re really happy with our situation. So who knows?” She went on to blame the unpredictability of life for the delayed nuptials, adding, “We’ll get there when we get there.” Sigh.
Previously, JoJo told In Touch a similar story. “The commitment is 100 percent there; we’re just enjoying being engaged,” she said at the time.
But fans have been concerned about their relationship status ever since the couple briefly unfollowed each other on social media last summer. JoJo and Jordan quickly added each other again on Instagram and Twitter, but not before an eagle-eyed reddit user noticed the cryptic move in June. “JoJo and Jordan unfollowed each other only to refollow each other again a few hrs later,” bachgirl wrote on the discussion website. “Another break up in the midst?” Other commenters chimed in defending the pair, with one fan writing, “I hope they’re not breaking up lol, just when I had gotten over her season enough to root for them!”
It does look like JoJo and Jordan did briefly unfollow each other, with both their names now on the top of their respective “following” lists on social media — indicating a recent addition. Despite the temporary social media shade, JoJo and Jordan’s recent posts prove they’re still together — just don’t expect a TV wedding when (or if) they do decide to tie the knot.
“There’s a distinct intimacy and privacy and it’s a very special moment with family and friends, and I wouldn’t want anything to tarnish that or to take away from that,” Jordan told The Hollywood Reporter. “It’s a time that I want to be able to honor my fiancée and soon-to-be wife and her family, and I want it to be ours… If there’s a way to do that and include fans, great. But that wouldn’t be my first wish.”
Well, based on JoJo’s most recent post, it seems like they’re doing well! And that’s what we’d like to believe.
