When Andi Dorfman signed up to be The Bachelorette this season, she was hoping to find her “great love” among a field of 25 potential suitors.

The Atlanta native, 27, found her partner for life in former pro baseball player Josh Murray, 29, whom she warily called “her type” all season long.

Before accepting a stunning Neil Lane ring from Murray in the Dominican Republic, the former assistant district attorney sent home Nick Viall, 33, during a tense conversation in which the sales account executive told Dorfman she had taken it “too far” with him.

But once she made her way to Murray, Dorfman couldn’t contain her happiness.

“When I decided to give up my first love – baseball – all those years ago, a big reason why was because I knew there was a great love that existed somewhere,” Murray told her.

“You are the answer to all my prayers. You are the woman of my dreams. You are the woman that I never thought existed in this world. I know deep down in my heart I am the only man who can make you smile the way you do.”
