In a post on Instagram, Kufrin opened up about the end of her engagement to the man she met more than two years ago on her season of The Bachelorette. (Previously, she was briefly engaged to Arie Luyendyk Jr. following his season of the show.) The hurdles in Becca and Garrett’s relationship were present from the start, largely due to controversial Instagram likes from Garrett that were revealed when the season was first airing. She stood by him at that time, and they’ve also dealt with a number of other headlines about his controversial stances, including during the social-justice movement of the past few months.
Is it possible that differences in ideology led to the split? Sure, but that’s their decision to open up on some of that. There is no sense on projecting, especially since it’s clear that the two are now going their separate ways and it’s been expected for a while due to the rumors.
As for what this means for the future of Becca in Bachelor Nation, it doesn’t change much. We’re sure that she will continue to have a presence on the Bachelor Happy Hour podcast, which she has hosted alongside fellow lead Rachel Lindsay. Hopefully, she will have the time to heal and move forward from all of this.

With a heavy heart, Garrett and I have come to the loving conclusion to end our engagement. All that we will share is that we still have nothing but love and respect for one another even though we’ve decided to go down our own separate paths. While we’ve arrived at this point, it doesn’t diminish the countless, amazing memories made together. We hope that everyone can allow us grace, respect and the time to heal our hearts as we navigate this next chapter in our lives.
