Bachelor NZ star announces engagement

She said yes!

A contestant from the 2016 series of The Bachelor NZ has announced she’s engaged, after sharing a beautiful ring snap to social media.

Claudia Conaglen, who appeared on the reality show last year as she vowed for Jordan Mauger’s affections, has found lasting love under a year after wrapping the show.

Taking to her Instagram page, the blogger shared a photo of her diamond engagement ring in front of Shine Falls, in Tutira.

“I said YES to the man of my dreams. I am truly blessed and grateful to have met such an amazing guy,” she wrote.

Meanwhile her fiance Paul Ejamme wrote he was “so proud” Claudia had accepted.

“Thank you for always supporting me and loving me.”

On her blog, Claudia explains how she met her dream man just as she was planning to leave New Zealand.

“My plan was to have my 30th birthday in New Zealand then move back to Bali,” she wrote on her blog. “My good friend Mo who hosted my white 30th birthday bash brought this handsome tan, blue eyed man to my party. He introduced himself to me as Paul aka Bluey.”

The rest, it seems, is history.
