ABC -- the network behind The Bachelor and The Bachelorette -- confirmed on Wednesday that the newly engaged couple will be starring in their own reality show, Ben and Lauren: Happily EverAfter, that will air on the network's sister channel, Freeform TV. The series will "follow the happy couple as they prepare to walk down the aisle and begin their brand-new life together while navigating the real world after the splendor of The Bachelor's exotic dates and fantasy suites has ended."
Higgins will also explore a career in politics while Bushnell seeks to find her identity following the final rose ceremony. "Ben and Lauren are the biggest Bachelor couple of the last 10 years," Karey Burke, Freeform's executive vice president of programming and development, said in a statement. "Their romance captured everyone’s attention, and we are delighted to continue their story on Freeform."
When ET caught up with the couple in March, they seemed ready to start their life together, and may have hinted that they would be doing so in front of cameras. "[Lauren]'s a beautiful person who I can't wait to share my life with and show people that I'm sharing my life with her," the 28-year-old software salesman said. "I think that's the part that I am most excited for."
Higgins -- who resides in Denver, Colorado with his fiancee -- was adamant that he and Bushnell were focusing on their future together. "Lauren and my intentions when we committed to each other was to commit to each other," he shared. "[To] do whatever it takes to keep that commitment going forever [and] that's why I think it'll work. That's why I have no doubt that it will work."
