Chris Harrison and Lauren Zima Squash Marriage Rumors

Did Bachelor host Chris Harrison and Entertainment Tonight’s Lauren Zima get married? Fans offered the couple many congratulations after Harrison posted a photo of Zima in a floor-length gown and him in a tux.

Harrison captioned the photo saying, “‘I’d stop the world and melt with you’ @laurenzima there’s no one I’d rather celebrate love with and I’ll be your plus one anytime.”

Assuming the pair had tied the knot, friends and fans instantly began offering their many congratulations to the happy couple.

Trista Sutter, the original bachelorette, commented, “If you got married, I’m here for it and huge congratulations!!! If not, I’m here for it too!! You two are a beautiful pair!”

Quick to shut down the rumors, Harrison and Zima took the comments on Instagram stating they attended a wedding—but it wasn’t their own.

Zima replied to the comments, stating, “Love you so much and appreciate all the ‘congrats’! This *bridesmaids* dress is really living above its potential.”

Harrison also replied to the comments, stating, “Wow you attend one wedding together…do one chicken dance and your [sic] hitched! Congrats Christine and Kevin on a beautiful wedding and the start of a wonderful life together. I do love this bridesmaid though❤️.”

The couple began dating in 2018 after knowing each other for a few years. Zima, a correspondent for Entertainment Tonight, met the longtime Bachelor host after Harrison appeared as a guest on ET’s Bachelor segments.

Recently Harrison stepped down as host of the long-time reality show after his comments about Bachelor contestant Rachel Kirkconnell’s racially insensitive photos.

Chris Harrison’s girlfriend was quick to call him out for what he said during an interview with Rachel Lindsey. In an Instagram Story, Zima stated, “What Chris said was wrong and disappointing. Defending racism can never happen. Accountability comes first, what’s next is learning and growth.”

For now, long-time fans of the Bachelor Franchise will have to wait for Harrison to return to the show.
