It is a very Merry Christmas in Kelowna, British Columbia.
Interior designer and “Love It or List It Vancouver” host Jillian Harris received the one gift she wanted on Santa’s list, a wedding proposal from longtime boyfriend Justin Pasutto. The first-ever Canadian “Bachelorette” ecstatically shared the news with fans on social media: “Well THAT was SOME Christmas morning!!!!! OH MY GOD my heart cannot handle this much LOVE! Justin you’ve made me the HAPPIEST girl in the world.”
Harris and Pasutto are parents to a beautiful baby boy named Leo, born August 5 of this year. The 36-year-old television personality has designed popular Canadian restaurant chains like Cactus Club and Browns Socialhouse.
After finishing as the runner-up of season thirteen of “The Bachelor”, Harris was selected as the fifth “Bachelorette”. She got engaged to that season’s eventual winner Ed Swiderski, but the two broke up one year later. That’s all in the past now for Harris, who is on cloud nine after a life-changing Christmas morning 2016.
