Garrett’s engagement to Alex comes two years after splitting with Becca Kufrin, who he got engaged to during the season 14 finale of The Bachelorette.
The pair, who split after two years together, broke up largely due to conflict caused by Garrett’s support for the “Thin Blue Line,” a pro-police slogan associated with the Blue Lives Matter movement.
“Becca is still very upset with Garrett’s comments and the controversy surrounding the “Thin Blue Line,” a source told E! News exclusively in Aug. 2020, adding, “Their lifestyles don’t mesh anymore. Garrett wants different things and they came to a realization that they aren’t compatible anymore.”
However, Garrett isn’t the only one moving on as earlier this year, Becca got engaged to fellow Bachelor Nation member Thomas Jacobs, who she met during Bachelor in Paradise in 2021.
