Six years after getting brutally dumped by Richie Strahan on The Bachelor, fan-favourite Nikki Gogan has gotten engaged to her long-term boyfriend!

The real estate agent, who found fame on the show’s fourth season, announced her partner Bill Coe had popped the question while on holiday in Western Australia over the weekend.

“BEST. HOLIDAY. EVER. ☀️💍 Engaged at sunset 30.06.22 | Sal Salis, Exmouth. I love you @billyhooo ❤️❤️❤️,” Nikki shared alongside a photo of herself and Bill.

In a separate Instagram post, Nikki shared a close-up shot of her stunning marquise-shaped engagement ring by Linneys Jewellery.

“Dream guy @billyhooo ❤️ Dream ring @linneys_jewellery 💍 Dream location @salsalisningaloo ☀️,” she penned.

Fellow Bachelor stars congratulated Nikki on her engagement, with Irena Srbinovska writing, “Congratulations beautiful xx” and Holly Kingston commenting, “CONGRATS ❤️❤️❤️.”

“CONGRATULATIONS!! So so happy for you!!!!” Alisha Aitken-Radburn penned underneath Nikki’s post.

Nikki and Bill, a director at an architecture company, met at a bar in Perth in March 2018. However they didn’t go public with their romance until June that same year.

“Believe me when I say that I am the luckiest girl in the entire world. I am surrounded and loved by the most incredible people and I am so so grateful,” she shared with her fans.

“This has been the best birthday ever and this man is a major part of that #taken.”

The pair moved in together in late August 2018, with Nikki telling NW couldn’t be happier with her new relationship.

“He’s my dream guy. I’m very happy,” she said.

Nikki was an instant fan-favourite on the 2016 season of The Bachelor, where she placed runner-up behind Alex Nation – who later broke up with Richie after just a few months.

The 34-year-old turned down an offer to appear on Bachelor in Paradise, and has since managed to largely stay out of the spotlight.
