Lauren Bushnell Has New Boyfriend After Split From Ben Higgins
It didn’t take long for Lauren Bushnell to move on after announcing her split from The Bachelor star Ben Higgins!
A source confirmed that 27-year old Bushnell is now dating season 20 Bachelor alum Devin Antin. “They are dating exclusively,” a source revealed and added that the duo were friends even before she joined the ABC reality series. “It happened very quickly after her split with Ben, but [Ben and Lauren’s] relationship was over way before it officially ended,” a second source told Entertainment Tonight. “She is really happy with Devin and they’re having a great time together.”
Bushnell and ex-fiance Ben Higgins announced their split two months ago after being together for over a year. After their appearance on The Bachelor, the couple went on to film a spinoff show Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After. Fans first speculated that the duo may have broken up back in February when photos surfaced of Bushnell celebrating her 27th birthday at a girl’s weekend in Mexico and wasn’t wearing her engagement ring.
The duo announced their official split in May and have managed to keep a friendly, civil relationship. “We check in on each other occasionally. Obviously some things that we need to talk about like if he gets a package to our house or mail. So, friendly terms — yes,” Bushnell told Us Weekly in June. “It’s not like talking everyday or not a lot of small talk. It’s just checking in and making sure we’re OK, but then we also are giving each other the space that we both need to move forward.”
