How Sean & Catherine Kept Their Engagement Secret


It's been months since Bachelor Sean Lowe actually popped the question to contestant Catherine Giudici and, miraculously, the lovebirds were able to keep their secret under wraps. How'd they do it? 

"We only got to see each other once every couple of weeks," revealed Sean, who dwelled in Dallas as his search for romance hit the airways from January through March. Meanwhile, his bride-to-be returned to her hometown of Seattle.

"When we saw each other, we were basically in a house and we couldn't leave the house," he explained. "We've been keeping this secret for so long so it feels so nice to have it out in the open now."

If that wasn't hard enough, Sean has been withholding another big item from fans—his involvement with Dancing with the Stars. The hunky Texan and his pro partner Peta Murgatroyd apparently had to employ similar tactics to ensure no one would let the cat out of the bag.

"It wasn't easy," admitted Sean. "My partner Peta and I, we've been practicing away from where everyone else practices. So it's nice to have that secret out of the way too, and now everyone can know that I will be on Dancing with the Stars."
