She finally got her happy ending.

You might remember Nikki Ferrell from her time as a contestant on ABC’s “The Bachelor.”

She and a number of women competed for the heart of Juan Pablo, who turned out not to be the prize ABC advertised him as.

In the final rose ceremony of Juan Pablo’s season, he picked Ferrell as the winner, sans the flashy engagement ring and proposal.

And even though their relationship did not stand the test of time, Ferrell has since found her true prize.

“I can’t wait to marry my best friend,” Ferrell posted Monday on Instagram, accompanied by a photo of her beau, Tyler Vanloo, on one knee, ring in hand.

 

And on the last day of vacation this happened! I can't wait to marry my best friend. Over the moon happy right now!

(That’s how it’s done, Juan Pablo.)

“Over the moon happy right now!” the Children’s Mercy nurse wrote.

“Essss okay because she’s engaged,” one of Ferrell’s followers commented, in a nod to Juan Pablo’s signature saying.

I think Nikki would agree.

Ferrell and her new fiance were vacationing in Pagosa Springs, Colo., when the proposal happened.

And Ferrell couldn’t have announced her engagement at a better time — after all, Monday is the season premiere of “The Bachelor.”
