Millions watched their romantic proposal in Thailand – and now The Bachelor's newly engaged Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici can finally proclaim their love to the world.

"I'm just so excited that the secret is out," Lowe tells PEOPLE.

Adds Giudici: "Now, we can be a normal couple and hold hands in public!"

Hold hands they will, but Lowe and Giudici have vowed to save being intimate until after the wedding.



"From my perspective, I've lived life kind of selfishly for a long time," says Lowe, a conservative Christian and born-again virgin. "Now, I'm going to try to live it the way I know to be right."

As for his bride-to-be's feelings on the topic? "I honor him," she says.

The pair, who announced they will tie the knot on a televised special for ABC, most likely don't have too long of a wait, though.



"I'm a guy. I'd go to the courthouse tomorrow if she'd let me," says Lowe. "We just fit so well together. We both know it's right."
