Fans began following the former attorney’s journey to find love in 2014, when she appeared on Juan Pablo Galavis‘ season of The Bachelor and then went on to star on The Bachelorette. Andi got engaged to Josh Murray at the end of her season; however, they announced their breakup in 2015.
“It was a crazy experience, but it was also very life-changing for me,” she noted of her time in the franchise. “Now that I’m getting a little older, getting married, wanting to have kids soon, I think it’s an experience that is going be fun to tell my kids about….Like, how many people can say their mom was a Bachelorette?”
And while Andi said there were “definitely some cringe moments” in her experience, it ultimately brought her to her rosy relationship with Blaine.
“Now that I’m getting married, I’m like, ‘OK, so that’s all what it led to,'” she told E!. “If I hadn’t done the show, I wouldn’t have moved to New York, I wouldn’t have moved to L.A., I wouldn’t have been in Italy at the time that I met Blaine. So it’s, in some weird way, led me here.”
