And of course, they're looking forward to their first official night out together as an engaged couple.

"I'm excited to go on a date, like a dinner date. A real date!" said Bushnell.

As for how they've spent the last four months, sneaking off to see each other in hiding every weekend? Well, as Bushnell explained, it was a lot of "Netflix and chill."

"We've watched all of Narcos," added Higgins, 27. "We've watched like four different shows, because it's all we got to do!"

In this week's PEOPLE cover story, Higgins and Bushnell open up about their love and what's next for them.

"Now that I'm out of that world and we're together and looking at life from here on out, it's a lot easier," Higgins says. "[The Bachelor] led me to this woman who I love deeply. She is the only woman I'll love from now on."

Now the two are busy planning for the future, including Bushnell's move to Denver.

"It made the most sense for me to move," says Bushnell, a flight attendant. "And of course Ben, being the sweetest guy, was like, if you don't like it, we can move! I'm more than excited. We're starting a life together."
