The relationship timeline of the couple

The love story of Ben and Jessica started in the typical way it happens in the millennial way. While online on the social networking platform, Ben slid into her DMs and asked for a date. They started dating in the end of 2018. But they made it official in February 2019. Jessica is six years younger to Ben.

Ben had stated earlier to US Weekly that he and Jessica share a solid relationship. In his words:

“Our relationship is healthy. I’m a better version of myself, a more free version of myself than I’ve been in a while,”

He was sure that he would propose to her before the year 2020 ends. And he kept his promise. Their relationship was long distance between Denver and Nashville, Tennessee.
