Though former Bachelor star Ben Higgins is still hung up on his split from Lauren Bushnell, it took her way less time to move on! Just months after calling off her engagement from the hunk, the blonde beauty revealed she was dating new boyfriend Devin Antin, who she just happened to meet before she appeared on the reality dating competition.
"I don’t think I’ve shared before but I only met up with one person from the app and it was him," she wrote in a Q & A with fans on Instagram last year. "We hung out for a while but more as friends but always got along really well. Fast forward two years later when I moved back to L.A. we hung out to catch up and things just kinda happened after that.”
Lauren, 27, and Devin first went public with their relationship on social media last August, just two months after her split from Ben. Despite the quick turnaround, Lauren reassured fans she was in no rush to walk down the aisle. "I do see a future with him,” she explained. “But I want to be 1000 percent sure before I get engaged and even more sure before I get married. And for me that takes time. I’ve learned a lot of things in the last couple years and this is a big one. Marriage is such a special and sacred thing that should never be rushed."
And when it comes to her new man, who is a 29-year-old real estate investor, Lauren can't seem to stop gushing. "His laugh" she listed as her favorite thing about Devin before adding, "how much fun I have when I'm with him and how much I can be myself... everything about him honestly." Meanwhile, Ben is currently competing in The Bachelor Winter Games and struggling to connect with his co-stars because of the split. However, he only had nice things to say about Lauren finding love again.
"I don’t know a lot about the situation, honestly. From what I understand and from what I hear, she’s happy. As hard as that is for me to think about — because it’s still hard to think about and I think it would be hard for her to think about if I was in that situation,” Ben told Us Weekly. "Lauren is an incredible person. She’s great and she’s beautiful and she has a ton going for her. That girl is going to crush it when it comes to this world. She’s a good friend to people. We need people like her happy and so if she’s happy right now, I will celebrate that the best I can." We have a feeling Ben will find a new girl in no time!
