Crawley and Beauséjour-Savard were engaged for two months after meeting on Bachelor Winter Games in 2018. They split that April. Crawley, who previously appeared on season 18 of The Bachelor and seasons 1 and 2 of Bachelor in Paradise, was later named the season 16 Bachelorette. While Beauséjour-Savard filmed a scene with his ex for her premiere, ABC executive Rob Mills revealed after the episode aired in October 2020 that the footage was left on the cutting room floor.

“This picture was taken exactly one year ago,” Crawley wrote on September 25 via Instagram. “He asked me to dinner. I didn’t have an appetite. (Stressed & depressed) But I said yes to tea and a walk. Ended up laughing and smiling more than I did the entire last year combined.”

Us Weekly confirmed on Monday, October 10, that the Mascot Sports CEO popped the question during the unified lantern release at the RiSE Festival in Las Vegas on October 7.

It’s just been a serious journey, and Ryan has been by my side since the very beginning,” she said. “Really what he’s in it for is my heart, and he is so consistent and so vocal about how much he loves me. It is something I have never experienced. … It’s been such a gift having him in my life.”
