The bachelor party‘s Jed Wyatt is engaged to girlfriend Ellen Decker. Jed was a contestant on the bachelorette season 15, directed by Hannah Brown. He eventually won and proposed Hannah in the final. But that was far from the end of their saga.
Like Hannah B.’s bachelor party season aired in the summer of 2019, Jed earned backlash. The musician already appeared to have a girlfriend, Haley Stevens, while she was on the show. Hannah called off their engagement amid the allegations. In a 2021 all-encompassing book, she opened up about that difficult situation and her relationships with runner-up winners Tyler Cameron and Peter Weber. Meanwhile, Jed still insists he didn’t cheat. Months after his engagement to Hannah imploded, the singer began dating Ellen in late 2019. Almost three years later Jed, who accused bachelor party producers of manipulation, is called in for the second time.
On Sunday 17 July, jed announced his and Ellen’s engagement via Instagram. When he revealed that he had proposed on Friday, July 15 in Franklin, Tennessee, he wrote: “Every possible second of struggle leading up to this moment was worth it.” The 28-year-old named Ellen “the greatest joy of my life”, flowing that is his fiancée “the coolest, funniest, funny, down to earth, hardest working, healthiest food, doing routine, long walks, fresh air I’ve ever encountered.” Jed praised their relationship, sharing, “Our ability to work through difficult situations is very impressive. We never turn around and run at each other, we face life and figure it out.” Seemingly referring to opinions of the bachelorette fans, he continued, “We had people who doubted us and we laughed. We had days where we drove each other crazy and we always came back to fix it. We are rooted in a love that is deeper than anything I could ever have prayed for.”
The podcaster wrote to his 26-year-old wife-to-be, “I am thrilled to spend this life with you… to love you, protect you, support you, and buy you endless amounts of sprinkles.” Finally he wrote, “Waking up next to that ring on your hand for the past few days has been one of the happiest feelings I’ve ever felt in my life. You deserve it all, Ellen.” Jed, who moved in with Ellen in 2020, also posted a carousel of photos from the big day with the long caption. Fellow Bachelor Nation students Hannah Godwin, Garrett Powell and Luke Stone left congratulations for the happy couple.
Though it’s been three years since his proposal to Hannah aired, Bachelor Nation is still shaken by the fallout from Jed’s victory. It still follows him, Hannah, their loved ones and others from their season. In October 2021, Jed admitted the public split was difficult, but he thought both he and Hannah had to get through it. In the strangest twist yet, the God bless this mess The author’s brother, Patrick Brown, is engaged to Haley Stevens, Jed’s infamous ex. Meanwhile, Hannah, who talked about Patrick and Haley during her book tour, is currently dating Adam Woolard.
