Bachelor Nation first met Andi on Juan Pablo Galavis‘ season of The Bachelor in 2014 before watching her hand out roses as the Bachelorette later that year. While Andi got engaged to Josh Murray at the end of her season, they announced their breakup in 2015.
And Andi can’t believe it’s been nine years since her Bachelor journey began.
“It was a crazy experience, but it was also very lifechanging for me,” Andi said. “I still kinda pinch myself. Now that I’m getting a little older, getting married, wanting to have kids soon, I think it’s an experience that is going be fun to tell my kids about. Like, ‘Yeah, I did this.’ Like, how many people can say their mom was a Bachelorette? So, even though there’s definitely some cringe moments in all of that, yeah, it’s kind of just crazy to look back on.”
Ultimately, she sees it as the path that brought her to Blaine.
“I look at it now that I’m getting married, I’m like, ‘OK, so that’s all what it led to,'” the former reality star added. “Like, that is life-changing for me. And I think if I hadn’t done the show, I wouldn’t have moved to New York, I wouldn’t have moved to L.A., I wouldn’t have been in Italy at the time that I met Blaine. So, it’s in some weird way led me here.”
