Since 2015, Bachelor nation’s been waiting for “Bachelorette” alum Kaitlyn Bristowe and her fiancee Shawn Booth to tie the knot.
She was seen trying on wedding dresses a few months ago, but they weren’t gowns for their wedding day. Rather, she tried several bridal looks for a Wedding Vacations for Sunwing cover shoot in Jamaica.
ET Canada sat down with the happy couple to chat about their upcoming nuptials and got an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at their upcoming magazine spread shot at Jewel Grande Montego Bay.
“I’ve tried on wedding dresses one other time and I thought I would put it on and be like ‘meh?'” Bristowe said. “I don’t know, I don’t care, but I put it on and I got emotional and… excited and I never thought I would be that way, but I don’t know there’s something about putting on a wedding dress… it makes you think more about it.”
“It’s definitely exciting,” Booth added. “She gets upset now when I’m not emotional when she walks out in a wedding dress and I’m like ‘babe this is like the 10th wedding dress I’ve seen you in, give me a little bit of slack here.'”
“So, then I’m going to come down the aisle on the actual day and he’s gonna be like ‘hmmm’,” Bristowe hilariously added.
Kaitlyn and Shawn have been engaged since he got down on one knee for all of the world to see on “The Bachelorette” in 2015. So, could the wedding bells finally be ringing for the happy couple?
“I’m waiting for Shawn to re-propose,” Bristowe, 32, said. “I’m putting all the pressure on him!”
“We always talked about the show, being the way that we met and then we kind of wanted to do our own thing off camera and not have each other knowing it’s going to happen… to make it a little more sentimental,” Booth said.
You could say that Kaitlyn and Shawn aren’t the most conventional “Bachelor successful couple,” especially since the 31-year-old revealed last year on “Good Morning America” she was freezing her eggs with the help of fellow “Bachelor” alum and fertility nurse, Whitney Bischoff.
“I think a lot of women feel pressure to have kids especially when you get engaged,” Bristowe explained.
“I went back and forth about sharing about that fertility stuff, just because it really is a sensitive subject because I want to keep in mind people who struggle with fertility and getting pregnant because that’s something really serious that women go through,” she added. “I didn’t want to make it this thing like ‘wee this is fun and I can save my eggs for later.'”
“For me, I feel fortunate and I don’t think women know that those options are out there to freeze your eggs and have that insurance for later,” she said.
If the couple ends up having children naturally, Bristowe said she would be open to donating the eggs she had already frozen. “If I don’t use the eggs that I have cause I want to try to get pregnant naturally I’m open to donating my eggs like one of my best friends is gay and wants to have kids and I would love to be able to share that with him.”
Regardless, parenthood is definitely something that the couple is looking forward to in the future. “Shawn’s going to be the best dad,” Bristowe added. “If you’ve ever seen him with a dog you can’t even imagine what he would be like with a kid.”
“I’ve had a dog for almost 11 years now, so I think I’ve got my practice in,” Booth added. “It’s definitely something I look forward to.”
