"She is so happy and has wanted this with her fiance for a very long time!" an insider told Us of Oteri, 32. "We're all so happy to see them back together!"

"He is always the one everyone wanted to see her with!" the source added. "She couldn't be happier." (The lucky guy's name was not given.)

Oteri first made an impression on this current season of the ABC series when she opened up about her life as a single mother. (Oteri is mom to son Ben, 8. Galavis, 32, also has a child, daughter Camila, 5.) After making it to the bottom four and bringing Galavis home to meet her family, however, Oteri eventually didn't receive a rose and was eliminated from the show. (Filming for the bride-to-be ended back in October.)

But clearly, everything worked out for the best, and she will soon be moving away from Florida to settle down. "Her fiance has known Ben since he was a baby and Renee is so excited to start over with her new family in Seattle," a second insider told Us of the star's engagement. "She'll continue to be a photographer!"
