A lot of successful couples have come out of Bachelor in Paradise, but the romance between Kevin Wendt and Astrid Loch might be our favorite.
The Bachelor Nation stars met and fell in love on the most recent season of Bachelor in Paradise and they opened up to People about the experience.
“Even after we left Mexico, I know more about her than any of my exes combined. I think it works,” Kevin said.
“If you take away your phone and everything and just replace it with an ocean and a person, where you’re just 24 hours a day … you’re gonna have a good chance of knowing in depth who they are.”
He continued, “I think the difference with us from the other couples, was all we did was laugh together. We laughed for a month straight. Everyone called us Mom and Dad.”
However, the big shocker of the season was when Kevin decided to break up with Astrid right before the Fantasy Suite date.
“I had just done that on the Winter Games, and it was something I wish I didn’t do,” Kevin said, referencing his time with Ashley Iaconetti.
“So I didn’t even look at her [Astrid]. It was very selfish of me. It was like, what do I want to do? I just wanted to go home,” he explained.
“I was like, ‘I just need to leave. I don’t want to be talking about rings. I don’t want to be looking at rings.’”
Though Astrid was heartbroken, she had a feeling they’d be getting back together.
“On TV, it looks dramatic. But as we were leaving, I’m like, ‘Surely this isn’t the last conversation I’m gonna have with him.’ Like, this is not how we can end all of that,” she said.
They ended up reconnecting a couple of weeks after the show wrapped and have been together ever since.
Though Kevin lives in Toronto and Astrid is based in Florida, it looks like she’ll start making the move at some point next year.
“We just kind of have a bunch of trips until like January or February, and then I’ll probably start moving most of my clothes, and then we’ll have to get a bigger place,” Astrid said.
We’re excited to see their love continue to grow!
