"I am very much in love," Lindsay revealed. "And engaged!"

ET recently caught up with Lindsay during her first official Bachelorette photo shoot, where she opened up about the qualities she was looking for in a husband.

"[I'm] definitely [looking for] confidence, a man that's secure and self aware. I'm gonna bottle that all into one," she said. "[I want a] guy who has good morals. And then a funny guy."

Lindsay's pal, Corinne Olympios (who will also make an appearance on this season of The Bachelorette), told ET's Brice Sander on Wednesday night that she knows Lindsay "found the right one."

"I'm really happy for her," she shared.
