Fans of “The Bachelorette” were in for a wild ride with this last season. Rachel Recchia and Gabby Windey made history as the franchise’s first co-leads in a season, but with it came drama, confusion, and many bumps in the road.
Although Rachel’s journey did not end the way she had hoped — her fiance, Tino Franco, cheated on her after the show ended as he claimed he thought they were on a break — Gabby received the proposal of her dreams, and she and Erich Schwer are still together.
To celebrate the “Bachelorette” finally being over, the 31-year-old ICU nurse posted a series of photos to Instagram, showing how happy they are.

Despite going through a drama-filled finale, Gabby and Erich are continuing to work on their relationship and are overcoming obstacles. The “Bachelorette” lead said after the finale ended, “Ultimately it was a time for us to take a step back and reflect on our relationship and see if we can get through this. You have to really lead on your communication, be really honest with each other while having these tough conversations. We’re seeing how we can become better from both.”
To celebrate finally being out in the open now that the full season of “The Bachelorette” has aired, Gabby Windey shared various photos to Instagram after the “Bachelorette” finale aired, writing, “Hard launch.”
Two of the photos show Gabby stripping down into a skimpy bikini, hugging Erich in one photos, and kissing her fiancé in another.
