It turns out Cassandra Ferguson didn’t have to look far for love after all.
Showing off a snapshot of her sparkler, Ferguson writes, “Yes, I’m engaged!”
The bride-to-be’s news (on Mother’s Day!) couldn’t have come at a better time: The couple are parents to son Trey.
Ferguson’s journey to love hasn’t been easy – Galavis ultimately sent her home early – but she has finally found her happily ever after.
“Who wants that perfect love story anyway?” she captioned a black-and-white photo of her and Rodney cuddling close.
Ferguson isn’t the only one to have found her Prince Charming since the show: Fellow contestant Renee Oteri got married in March.
