Andrew Firestone, Former Bachelor, is Engaged
We hope Andy Baldwin is taking notes - because if he follows the lead of a certain past Bachelor, he'll get married. Someday. To someone not currently on the show.
We're basing this prediction on the fact that Andrew Firestone will reportedly be single no more.
The 31-year-old former star of The Bachelor's third season has proposed to 29-year-old actress/model Ivana Bozilovic, Us Weekly reported in its May 7 issue. The Firestone Tire company heir has been dating the Yugoslavian-born Bozilovic for two years.
According to Us, Bozilovic - who was raised in Chicago and had a brief appearance in Wedding Crashers - works with Firestone at his family's vineyard in Los Olivos, CA.
"[Firestone] is a lot more down-to-earth than I pictured him," Bozilovic said
The aspiring actress and the rest of America were introduced to Firestone during ABC's third edition of The Bachelor in 2003. Firestone narrowed a field of 25 bachelorettes down to Jen Schefft and proposed to her in the show's season finale. However, there was no marriage... of course.
While the couple dated for several months and reportedly discussed having children together, the two eventually split in December 2003. Rumors of their reconciliation began circulating in February 2004, but never materialized - and Schefft even starred in The Bachelorette's third season as Firestone began dating Bozilovic.
"I'm happy for [Firestone]," Schefft, who ended her The Bachelorette season by rejecting the marriage proposals of both her final two suitors.s. "I wish them all the luck in the world."
