Andy Baldwin: I'm Engaged!

at . Comments

U.S. Navy Lt. Andy Baldwin now swoons for one woman only.

The sleuths at TV Guide caught up with the hot doc, who hands out his last rose on ABC's two-hour season finale of The Bachelor: Officer and a Gentleman tonight starting at 9 p.m.

What he won't say is whether it's going to Bevin Powers or Tessa Horst. But we think we've got a pretty good idea who gets it.


TV Guide: Were you skeptical because of how some other relationships on The Bachelor have ended?
Andy Baldwin: I'm not a prince (Lorenzo Borghese) and I'm not a Firestone heir (Andrew Firestone). You know, the show has been successful, too. Trista and Ryan Sutter are married and having a baby, and Byron Velvick and Mary Delgado are getting married. I thought if I went in with the right attitude, anything would be possible.

TV Guide: Can you confirm if you're engaged?
Andy Baldwin: I am.

TV Guide: Have you set a date?
Andy Baldwin: No, not yet.

TV Guide: Were you pressured at all to propose?
Andy Baldwin: As things got deeper emotionally, I felt the potential for bigger and better things. To make a commitment and to propose was the right thing to do.

TV Guide: You've been separated from the woman you love since the end of filming….
Andy Baldwin: We do talk a lot. It's been important for us to be able to lean on each other during this time [since taping ended]. Especially her, because she hasn't been able to voice her joy and affection. We [don't] talk too much about the show. We talk about our future.

TV Guide: And have you talked about her becoming a military spouse?
Andy Baldwin: The strength and the courage and the understanding that it takes to be a military spouse is something that shouldn't be taken lightly. She very much understands the sacrifice that goes into being a military spouse, and that was a question I asked of all the women coming down to the end: Were they prepared to move to Hawaii and be married to a military officer who could be deployed at any time?

The Bachelor Quotes

I would definitely prefer not to be the first Bachelor rejected at the end of all of this.


This is not another season of The Bachelorette. Or Paradise. This is actually The Bachelor. I know, I’m as surprised as you are.
