Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell are celebrating their first anniversary, just after Gossip Cop helped bust a story about the couple splitting.

While Higgins’ proposal to Bushnell aired on “The Bachelor” season finale this past May, it was actually filmed in November of 2015. That means it’s already been a year since the reality stars became engaged. And while they had to keep their romance under wraps at first, for the sake of the show’s plot, they can at least now celebrate this big milestone out in the open.

On Friday morning, Higgins tweeted, “One year ago today I started my life with @LaurenBushnell3 and we are better today than ever before.” Accompanying the message was a photo of the couple FaceTiming with relatives. In the snapshot, Bushnell’s Neil Lane engagement ring is clearly visible (see above and below).

Higgins and Bushnell have been chronicling their post-“Bachelor” life on the Freeform reality show, “Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After?” On this week’s episode, he called off their wedding plans in favor of slowing things down. And in the current edition of In Touch, the tabloid claimed Higgins and Bushnell were breaking up.

But the Bachelor himself helped set the record straight, denying there were any such plans to split. And as his anniversary Twitter post indicates, he and Bushnell are still going strong. Will they eventually make it down the aisle? As they say in show business, stay tuned.
