Melissa Rycroft Reengaged!
Melissa Rycroft has officially rebounded.
Strickland popped the question Friday at White's Chapel in Southlake, Texas, after which the happy couple celebrated with his and Rycroft's parents—who were apparently onto something when they were reluctant to meet Jason last year—at a nearby restaurant.
Rycroft parlayed her rather heartbreaking Bachelor appearance into a third-place finish on Dancing With the Stars. Easy as ABC, the 26-year-old former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader was then offered a job as a special correspondent on Good Morning America this summer.
And it turns out Strickland was never too far from Rycroft's side throughout.
"We've been really good friends, but the timing was never right," she told Us Weekly of Strickland, who she started dating not long after Mesnick broke off their engagement.
"With all this going on, he's my support system. It's funny how things happen." For more on Melissa, visit here.
