Nikki Ferrell still thinks she's found the juan–and she's not letting the haters hate. Although Juan Pablo Galavis was finally able to privately say "I love you" to the former Bachelor contestant, many fans still aren't ready to give the controversial Bachelor couple their blessing.

On April 13, pediatric nurse Ferrell, 26, defended her relationship with Galavis, 32, by sharing a quote via Instagram: "I think we like to complicate things when it is really quite simple; find what it is that makes you happy and who is it that makes you happy and you're set. Promise", which she posted along with the caption, "Truer words have never been spoken. I create the definition of my own happiness. Full heart. Open mind. #lifeisgood"

One fan quickly retorted: "Honey, watchin soccer and eating cheetos w juany pabs AINT gonna make you happy." A fired up Ferrell then sniped: "Hm weird those happen to be 3 of my absolute favorite things. Thanks for playing tho. Better luck next time."

The 26-year-old then shared snaps of a PDA-filled photo booth session with the former soccer pro featuring the caption, "I mean who doesn't love a photo booth…..#cutesh–t"

As Us previously reported, after famously declining to tell her "I love you" during the After the Final Rose special, Galavis dropped the "L" word in private to Ferrell. "They Skype and text every day and are in constant contact," an insider added.
