They’re taking the next step! Though Bachelor in Paradise couple Joe Amabile and Kendall Long have been pretty much living together since he started getting ready for Dancing with the Stars back in summer 2018, they’re finally making it official. On April 26, the Bachelor and Bachelorette alums announced on their Instagram accounts that they’ve signed a lease in Los Angeles, California. It’s not exactly an engagement ring, but it’s still a pretty huge step.
“Just signed the lease to our new place in West Hollywood and couldn’t be more excited to start building a lil life together with this cutie, 😘🏠♥️” Kendall shared on her Instagram. Joe’s message was pretty similar. “We finally got a place together!! Now we should probably buy some furniture,” he joked. The place looks nice, too. On Instagram Live, they gave fans a better look with a mini-tour through the apartment, revealing that it’s a two-bedroom spot with plenty of natural light.
On Joe’s Story, they went into a little more detail. “We’re planning on doing some intense decorating,” Kendall revealed. Joe added, “The floors are clean, so that’s nice. They’re nice floors.” Their tour had even more info. The stars showed off their bedroom, kitchen, a small patio, and the holy grail of apartments: an in-unit washer-dryer. “We’re gonna give everybody a tour,” Kendall says in the video. “This is the living room. Fireplace action right here. … This is a window. Then we have a dining room … little patio going outside.” As for the second bedroom, she revealed they’ll likely turn it into an office. It sounds like a little slice of heaven!
In the Instagram comments, fans were all too excited for the couple. “You two are seriously so stinkin’ cute together,” wrote one. “Why is this the cutest picture of my life?” added another. Their famous friends also wanted to share their messages of congratulations, with Taylor Nolan, Jade Roper, Danielle Maltby, Dean Unglert, and Ali Fedotowsky showing them some love. “YAY! I wanna come see it,” wrote Joe’s DWTS partner, Jenna Johnson. Of course, Kendall was more than happy to make plans, promising, “[We] will have a house warming soon!”
We can’t wait to see the pictures. But there’s just one more thing we need from the couple, and that’s an answer to the question that fans just can’t stop asking: “But who will run the grocery store in Chicago!?”
