Clare Crawley‘s heart has been healed from the heartbreak she experienced after her days as The Bachelorette!
Some say good things come to those who wait, and the 41-year-old absolutely waited to find true love both on and off camera. During her time in Bachelor Nation, Crawley attempted to find love on four different shows in the ‘Bachelor’ franchise!
Crawley thought her journey was finally over after she became the lead of her own season of “The Bachelorette” and quickly fell for her contestant Dale Moss.
The couple quickly made headlines after Crawley’s reign as the ‘Bachelorette’ came to a premature end after she and Moss got engaged. Tayshia Adams would soon replace Crawley for the remainder of the season, and later get engaged as well.
Unfortunately, Crawley and Moss would not make it to the altar, and the couple split nearly half a year after Moss proposed.
Fast forward two years after Crawley’s season of “The Bachelorette” first aired, Crawley’s heartbreak is now ancient history! The Blast recently shared the big news that Crawley had found a new man!
That ‘new man’ has recently been upgraded! The ‘Bachelorette’ babe is now a fiancée once again!

The lucky man whose love helped heal Crawley’s heart is Mascot Sports CEO, Ryan Dawkins!
When Crawley first attempted to do a ‘soft launch’ of their relationship on social media with an Instagram video, she did not reveal his name. According to The Blast’s report about the duo’s blossoming relationship, published in September, some fans had taken to the comment section of her post and revealed his identity, per a report from People.
Crawley also later shared additional footage of her new man on her Instagram story at the time, including footage of the duo sharing a kiss!
Last week, Crawley revealed a giant announcement on Instagram: She and Dawkins were engaged!
She posted an adorable snapshot of Dawkins proposing with the night sky shining in the background. Several members of Bachelor Nation sent the future Mr. and Mrs. Dawkins their good wishes, including Rachel Lindsay, Trista Sutter, Zac Clark, and Katie Thurston.

The happy couple’s engagement photo won’t be the only picture-perfect element of their nuptials!
Crawley is already hard at work planning their wedding, and she has a full-fledged vision for her big day.
Crawley recently stopped by the “Ben and Ashley I. Almost Famous Podcast” and shared a glimpse into her wedding plans.
One big day won’t ‘do it’ for the couple; they are looking to stretch out their big day into two weddings, and the reason why is incredibly sweet!
Crawley has been quite open about her close relationship with her mother, who has both dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. She revealed to the public that the couple plans to have a wedding so her mother can join in on their big day.
“We want two weddings,” she told the episode’s hosts, Sutter, and Bob Guiney per People Magazine, “I want one because my mom is not able to travel… and to be around a lot of people is overwhelming for her.”
Crawley described that wedding as being “a small, intimate ceremony,” and the duo also plans to incorporate Crawley’s mother into the ceremony.
For the couple’s second ceremony, she also revealed Dawkins’ daughters would both be involved and that the new family would begin their new lives together at what she hopes to be a destination wedding!
As of this writing, the happy couple has not publicly revealed if they have set an official wedding date or not. Regardless if the couple chooses to be engaged for a while or if they opt to tie the knot as soon as possible, (Crawley also revealed in the interview that it’s important for the couple that her mother is able to see them tie the knot, adding “time is precious and time is limited”), their relationship seems to be written in the stars!
Crawley had previously called her husband-to-be “my perfect guy” on social media, and also described her life with Dawkins feels “so natural” in the aforementioned podcast interview.
Cheers to the happy couple!
