Andrew Firestone: Psyched to Marry Ivana Bozilovic

by at . Comments

Andrew Firestone was rather confident that girlfriend Ivana Bozilovic would accept his recent marriage proposal. Still, the former Bachelor star was nervous.

"I was hoping she would say yes. I was banking on it!" Firestone told Us Weekly in the magazine's October 22 issue. "Not for one second have I doubted that she's the one."

Well, except during third edition of The Bachelor in 2003, where he narrowed a field of 25 bachelorettes down to Jen Schefft and proposed to her in the show's season finale.

However, there was no ceremony, and while the couple dated for several months and reportedly discussed having children together, they eventually split in December 2003.

Firestone told Us he proposed to Bozilovic alone on the beach prior to a surprise 30th birthday party he planned for her, popping the question with a 2.5-carat diamond ring he helped design.

"Just being able to be there with all our friends and family was the most special moment of my whole life," he told Us.
