He kissed plenty of suitors in the quest to find his one true love, but as Australian Bachelor Matt Agnew reveals, it's all paid off. Because ladies, he's found The One and he couldn't be happier.
"I'm in love," he tells TV WEEK, smiling. "I would be hard-pressed to say I've been this happy before – this is me at my happiest." So happy, in fact, he's already talking kids with his lucky lady.
"I'm at a point in my life where I feel I've got a place to live; I've got a successful career; I've got a lot of things in the right place for me," Matt enthuses.
"It's the right time. I'm really excited to start that next chapter, which is marriage, kids, starting a family."

It was his parents great relationship that guided Matt on his path to love.
"They've been together for more than 30 years," he shares. "Their dynamic is something I look up to – the playfulness, the silliness, the friendship… it's all there."
When asked if he'll propose at the end of the show, Matt remains coy. "You never know! You'll have to wait and see – I can say no more."
And for all of you out there wondering how a smart and not to mention handsome man like Matt had been single for a year and a half before signing up for The Bachelor, the 32-year-old says it's all down to timing.
"Until now it's been a case of wrong time, wrong place," he says. "I've had a couple of serious relationships that haven't worked out because I've been a bit too focused on my career.
"I've also had some fun dates via Tinder, too. But now I'm in a place where I'm ready to meet The One."
As for how many children he'd love to add to the Agnew clan, Matt referenced his own family and his three siblings.
"Having grown up with a big family, I don't know if I could do four. There's a level of practicality I need to keep in mind, so two or three is probably what I'd hope for."
"I'd love to be a young dad," he says, revealing that his new nephew has made him clucky. "It's something I'm more than happy to get stuck into sooner rather than later."
We look forward to finding out who the lucky lady is.
