Gabby Windey and Erich Schwer’s engagement was finally revealed during The Bachelorette finale on Sept 20

Their relationship went even deeper on Erich's Hometown date when Gabby met his dad, who was dying of cancer at the time.

Today with Erich was one of the best days I’ve had so far," Gabby said in a confessional.

"Seeing him with his family, that really just made my feelings so much deeper for him."

Later, after Erich confessed to Gabby he was falling in love with her, she told the cameras.

"I can picture us so easy together, and today is a day that I’ll never, ever forget. After today, I think Erich’s Hometown, could’ve changed the rest of my life." 

During Fantasy Suites, Erich finally said "I love you." While their overnight date went well,

Erich's fears about Gabby's other connections almost cost them their relationship.

Eventually, though, Gabby parted with all her other suitors and expressed her love for Erich.

Gabby said, "I know it’s so hard and I think I’ve felt it for a while, but I do know that I love you."

"I’m so freaking lucky that it’s you," Erich sweetly replied.
