The former Bachelor star is engaged to girlfriend Emely Fardo after more than two years of dating. We introduced you to Emily last December. 

Palmer popped the question during a romantic trip to Paris, he told

“I’ve been so enamored, so in love with this woman and it only has grown. I’m head over heels for her,” he told the outlet.

And the proposal wasn’t the only surprise — Palmer, 40, secretly planned the entire trip himself!

“We had a week off of work so I booked tickets to Montreal and let her think we were staying 10 days at my home there,” he said. “On Monday morning I surprised her and said ”pack your bags, we’re going to the airport.”

“When we got to the terminal, she realized we were going to Paris,” the same city where they took their first couple’s trip, he said. “We stayed in Paris on Tuesday and Wednesday. On Thursday, I surprised her again and booked a car to take us to Champagne.”

Palmer, who starred on season 5 of The Bachelor, and Fardo met while taking a boxing class in New York City.

The former NFL star said he felt an immediate connection to the model. 

Congrats to Jesse.
