Who does Michelle end up with?
As The Bachelorette season reaches its finale, Michelle made her final choice and picked Nayte Olukoya as her fiancée.
She handed her final rose to Nayte and he addressed her, saying: "Through this journey, you've shared a lot of vulnerable stuff about your past.
"I know you've felt unseen at time but I want you to know that I am willing and ready to show you that you are chosen first, today, tomorrow and the rest of our lives. I love you Michelle."
A smiling Michelle then responded with her own words of affirmation: "From the moment you stepped out of the limo, I felt there was a connection.
"It was a moment where I was feeling things I didn't even know was possible to feel. Walking into this, my fear was that I would not be loved as much as I love the other person.
"Through our conversations, there were moments when I felt that fear creeping in. This has not been a smooth ride.
"But I'm also not willing to let that fear stop me from being with you. Because I love you with my whole heart and I don't want to wake up with anyone besides you and I don't want to do life with anyone but you.
"I want to be standing with my soulmate and he's definitely standing right in front of me."
A source revealed to The Sun that Nayte and Michelle are happier than ever post-season.
"Michelle is still happily with Nayte. They're watching the show together, he's come to Minnesota to see her and Michelle is actually very impressed with how Nayte's handling himself in the group.
"A lot of times the leads get turned off when they watch how their partner was when they weren't around but for Nayte it's the opposite," they said.
"Producers have had to cut down so, so many of their scenes because their connection is so strong, people would assume it's inevitable they end up together," the source continued.
"They cut out their first kiss and didn't air a lot of scenes that showed their strong connection. And it's really strong and really genuine, probably the most genuine connection a lead has had on this show.
"Even with their scenes scaled back, people can sense their chemistry. They seem like they'll be a couple who makes it."
Months before the show ended, however, spoiler king Reality Steve had already confirmed who Michelle had chosen following her season of The Bachelorette.
"Had heard rumblings since the season ended but got the confirmation I needed the end of last week," Steve said.
At the time, Reality Steve assured fans that Michelle ended up with Nayte.
The couple were first rumored together back in August when Steve spotted them on a "date" with some of her friends.
