AfterCarly Waddell's devastatingbreak up with Kirk DeWindton season two ofBachelor in Paradise(you remember—she could barely look at the guy after he said he wasn't on the same page as her),it's safe to say that if anyone deserved to leave happy this time around,Carly was it.
Of course,after watchingJoJo Fletcher's season ofThe Bachelorette,no one expected it to be withEvan Bass—and we meannoone.Not even Carly herself.When I arrived in Nuevo Vallarta,Mexico,to interview the final couples ahead of tonight and tomorrow's finale,not even I could have predicted these two would have hit it off.ThatCarly?与thatEvan?The erectile dysfunction expert?
And yet,when Carly walked onto theveranda of our suite in Mexicofor our sit-down interview,it was clear that the country singer from Nashville was in love.We're talking the all-in,glowing-from-within,I found my person love.The kind of happiness that we all wish for ourselves and others."I've never had a guy look at me that way before," gushed Carly."He gives me butterflies."
So,what is it about Evan that made Carly so sure he was The One?What made her know that after six weeks of knowing someone,she's ready to be a stepmom to his three kids?And why is she thanking Kirk for the heartbreak he put her through last season?Get ready for all that and more.(Update:Check out the ringthat Evan proposed with to Carly!)
Glamour: Holy moly,you and Evan!
Carly Waddell: I know,I'm super in love!
Glamour: What was the moment that drew you in?
Carly: The hospital date—where he got sick and went to the hospital.He had two infections,actually.There were no cameras,and it felt like I was dating in normal life.We started getting this connection,and I remember sitting in the car on the way back and thinking,"I really want to hold his hand.What?" And then,"Oh my gosh,I think I really like him.What?!" It was just this thing that was a roller coaster,and it started out where I broke up with him like five times.It was a roller coaster.
