Love Is Blind's Jessica Batten is heading back to the altar.

The reality show contestant got engaged to her boyfriend, Dr Benjamin McGrath, on 10 September.

Jessica first revealed her new beau on Instagram in July 2020.

In an interview with People, she said: "I don't think it has quite sunk in, but I'm definitely floating somewhere on cloud nine. It's been really, really exciting!"

According to the publication, the foot and ankle surgeon from California popped the question at Winery in Temecula, California.

Speaking about the moment, he asked her to marry her, Jessica said: "I walked down into the vineyard, and one of the aisles of grapes had rose petals all the way down to this gorgeous arch with roses all around it. Ben was standing there, and I pretty much knew at that point what was happening."

The 34-year-old was a contestant on the first season of the Netflix reality dating show in which singles try to find a match and fall in love - without ever seeing each other face-to-face.

Jessica had a rollercoaster relationship with Mark Cuevas on the show; she initially said yes to the proposal but ended up leaving him at the altar.
