Her wish already came true! Ashley Iaconetti shared a sweet message about her engagement to fiancé Jared Haibon on Christmas Day.

“With Jared by my side, I didn’t have anything on my Christmas list,” the Bachelor alum, 30, wrote on Instagram on Tuesday, December 25, along with a pink heart emoji. The caption accompanied a photo of the couple sporting big smiles at a football game.

Iaconetti spent the holiday with her fiancé’s family in Rhode Island. The “Ben and Ashley I Almost Famous” podcast host documented the festivities and the presents Haibon gave her, including a New York Giants sweatshirt and a House Hunters-inspired card, on her Instagram Story.

Meanwhile, the 30-year-old Bachelorette alum posted a photo of himself and his bride-to-be amid a pile of gifts on Tuesday. “Just waiting over here till Mom and Dad tell us we can start opening presents #MerryChristmas,” he wrote on Instagram.

Haibon and Iaconetti announced their engagement in June just one month after they confirmed they were dating. The pair, who met during season 2 of Bachelor in Paradise, are set to tie the knot in Rhode Island in August 2019.

The reality stars are taking their time when it comes to coordinating the big event. “I think the next time we’ll really wedding plan in Rhode Island won’t be until, like, March. We’re far away,” Iaconetti told Us Weekly in November. Haibon also noted: “Yeah, it’s slow. It’s amazing though. As soon as you pick the venue … you’ve got a few months to just do nothing.”

In the meantime, the twosome have weighed their options when it comes to a TV wedding. “I think we’re both down for it, but our caveat is that we want as many guests as we want and we don’t want to have to be limited to that,” Iaconetti said during a June episode of her “Almost Famous” podcast. “So if we couldn’t have it the way we imagined, that’s the only reason we wouldn’t want to do it … We want it, we want it.”
