After finding love on her season of The Bachelorette in 2015, Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth have ended their engagement.
They released the following statement exclusively with People magazine, “After three incredible years, we have decided to go our separate ways. This difficult decision comes after thoughtful, respectful consideration. Even though we are parting as a couple, we’re very much committed to remaining friends and we will continue to support each other. Due to the nature of how we met, our relationship has always been very public, and we have enjoyed sharing it with all of you, but we ask that you respect our decision and our privacy at this time.”
The two had been living in Nashville together with their dog Doodle. While Shawn works in fitness, Kaitlyn has established herself as a podcaster and robust personality. More recently, she’s been experimenting with singing and songwriting, something for which she’s always had a passion.
This news is sad, but so many of the show’s relationships end that it’s not that surprising. These two were very well liked, and they seemed to have a great, healthy relationship.
Kaitlyn has always been my favorite Bachelorette, and I wish them both the best moving forward.
We’ll also see what she has to say about it, potentially on her podcast, moving forward.
In the meantime, here are some photos with which to relive their time together:
