After proposing to Tara Pavlovic during the Bachelor In Paradise finale, Sam Cochrane’s future with his new fiancee is only just beginning.

The couple were able to finally go public with their romance on Monday evening, and spent their first night together after letting the world know they’re engaged.

Tara shared a cute snap of the pair holding hands in bed, and it’s so sweet, we can’t deal.

Sam also shared a loving message dedicated to his future wife.

“You are the most beautiful human I’ve ever met,” he wrote on Instagram.

“You show me everyday that love is real. You allow me to be the guy I always wanted to be but never quite could until I found you.

“Tara keeps hugging me while I write this,” he added, which just made us sigh, ‘awww’ all over again.

Promoting to “take care of her”, Sam went on to say, “I’m going to roll over and kiss my fiancé @tarapavlovic 3000 times”.
