For a former “Bachelorette” star, 2016 proved to be a fruitful and emotionally fulfilling year.

Jillian Harris, who was a contestant in American reality TV series “The Bachelor” in 2009, recently became engaged to her long-time boyfriend, Justin Pasutto. The Canadian actress, who starred in Season 5 of “The Bachelorette,” received a proposal from him on the morning of Christmas. The star happily accepted and then shared her first meal – a hearty breakfast – in bed with her fiancé.

Earlier this year, Harris welcomed her first child, Leo, with Pasutto.

Harris was previously engaged to Ed Swiderski, who she chose as the winner of “The Bachelorette.” They broke up in 2010. She then started dating Pasutto.

The 36-year-old British Columbia resident took to Instagram to share an adorable photo of baby Leo complete with a sailor cap and brown shoes. She then posted a photo of her and Pasutto looking at each other lovingly against the backdrop of a café. She flaunted her engaged ring in this photo.

A few hours ago, Harris posted a photo of all her makeup. She dolled herself up for date night with her fiancé.

Harris spent Christmas Eve with her parents and then headed to Vancouver to spend the holidays with her fiancé’s family. Their dog and Leo accompanied them for the trips.

Apart from being a reality star, Harris is also an interior designer. She is the host of Candian TV series “Love It Or List It Vancouver.” It airs on W Network in Canada and HGTV in the United States. In the show, she faces rival and real estate agent Todd Talbot. She has to redesign family homes in the hopes that they will chose to stay in their exisiting house rather than sell it to the agent.
