James announced the news in August with a photo of the two on the beach. "Finally I can proclaim that I did find love on The Bachelor and it was with @megan.leto.marx," she Instagrammed. "My hero, soul sister and BFF! I love this girl so much I moved up to Geraldton for more laughs and adventures with her! This pic was taken back in June when we were finally reunited on the beaches of Bali and have been pretty much inseparable ever since!"

Marx also couldn't help but gush over her girlfriend, writing: "Will never regret doing The Bachelor, @tiffany_janes."

"There are many things I love, but here is one," Marx captioned another photo of the couple. "Her heart is full of deep ocean minerals that splinter and disintegrate all the bad tastes, the hurtful mass ideas, and the ways of living that kill simple joys."

Since declaring their love, the ladies have flooded Instagram with adorable, bikini-clad photos of one another.

"I'm not sure where this track is taking us but I am definitely enjoying the adventure!" James captioned another adorable pic.

Meanwhile back in the U.S., Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell are sharing their post-Bachelor love story in Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After?, their new reality show. “Our life had really started out so abnormally, and it was going to be very difficult for us to spend time together with how fast our lives were moving,” Higgins told ET of moving in with his fiancee so quickly. “Any amount of time we could be together to get to know each other better, which I think God would desire for us to do before we make that ultimate commitment."
