Despite Megan Marx casting some serious doubts on Bachelor In Paradise about her relationship with Jake Ellis – so much so she didn’t want to go through with the commitment ceremony – it seems this pair are still together.
The 29-year-old model confirmed she and Jake were, in fact, still an item on Instagram.
Putting one Instagram commenter in their place who took a swipe about the state of her romance with Jake, Megan insisted she and her island beau “did the right thing”.
“It’s been six months since filming and Jake and I are still together,” she said. “We did the right thing for us.”
Jake reiterated Megan’s words on his own Instagram post.
“To get to that place of wholehearted commitment and take that leap together – and this day wasn’t right for either of us as much as I wished it was,” the 31-year-old captioned a sweet photo of himself and Megan. “But looking back now, I feel our way was the right way.”
Jake also insisted it was just their “first chapter”.
Megan broke the heartbreaking news to Jake she didn’t want to go through with the commitment ceremony on the Bachelor In Paradise finale.
“It’s not the right time,” she said. “I don’t think that we should do the commitment ceremony. I think this is going to be the best thing.”
Clearly upset and taken aback, Jake wasn’t happy with Megan’s decision to leave.
However, as they both said, it seems like things have worked out for the better.
