She may have been unlucky in love when she failed to win Sean Lowe's heart on The Bachelor but Desiree Hartsock has finally been given her romantic happy ending following the news that she has got engaged.
Having decided to return to the format of finding love on TV, Desiree took on the role of The Bachelorette and months on, the star is no longer one.
According to Life & Style Weekly, the TV star was presented with a cushion-cut 3.5-carat Neil Lane diamond and platinum engagement ring, which is believed to have cost a cool $75,000. Claiming that Desiree was so happy to be proposed to, a source claimed to the publication:
"She’s over the moon! Desiree believes she made the right choice.”

The identity of Desiree's fiance is currently being kept underwraps until August 5, when viewers of the show will see the proposal take place.
Despite having to keep their romance a secret, an insider went on to claim that the couple are more in love than ever.
They commented: "They get to see each other once a week. Right now, Des is absolutely beside herself with happiness. She seems to have a constant smile on her face.”
Congratulations to the happy couple!
Ahead of the series premiere earlier this year, Desiree spoke of the type of person she wanted to meet on the show. She told People magazine:
She said: "I like someone who's spontaneous and adventurous and enjoys every aspect of life. And not to get too serious, but someone who could be my best friend and be a support system, someone who I can see as the father of my kids."
Keen to follow in the relationship footsteps of her parents, Desiree continued:
"My parents have been together 40 years and married for 35. My dad has her back no matter what, and she's so affectionate to him. They act like they are 16."
