Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum are in love and can finally show it in public (and on another television show) now that his proposal has aired on ABC’s “The Bachelorette.”

“It was kind of fun at first, to keep the secret,” Hebert told Robin Roberts on “Good Morning America. “But then, towards the end, we were ready to kind of come out in the open.”

The 26-year-old dental student picked Rosenbaum over Ben Flajnik, whose proposal was rebuffed in front of millions of people. It was painful to watch.

So why did Hebert pick Rosenbaum? “He's very charming,” she said. “He's been my rock, and I think that everything that happened on the season really brought us closer and we have a great foundation.”

The couple seemed very lovey-dovey throughput the interview. But are they headed to Heartbreak City, USA, like many cynics believe?

“We gonna prove them wrong!” Hebert declared of the naysayers. “This is something special,” Rosenbaum added.
