It turns out Cassandra Ferguson didn't have to look far for love after all.
The former Bachelor
contestant, who tried to win Juan Pablo Galavis
's heart, is engaged to her boyfriend Rodney, she announced Sunday on Instagram
Showing off a snapshot of her sparkler, Ferguson writes, "Yes, I'm engaged!"
The bride-to-be's news (on Mother's Day!) couldn't have come at a better time: The couple are parents to son Trey.
Ferguson's journey to love hasn't been easy – Galavis ultimately sent her home early – but she has finally found her happily ever after.
"Who wants that perfect love story anyway?" she captioned a black-and-white photo
of her and Rodney cuddling close.
Ferguson isn't the only one to have found her Prince Charming since the show: Fellow contestant Renee Oteri got married
