Tayshia Adams ended season 16 of The Bachelorette with a ring on her finger! But as Entertainment Tonight shares, Adams revealed in a new interview on Wednesday that she almost spoiled her engagement after a social media slip-up!
Adams took to Instagram while wearing engagement ring
Adams had made a seemingly normal post on her Instagram Story at the beginning of December that showed her making coffee. However, it also featured her wearing her engagement ring— weeks before the finale of The Bachelorette had aired! "I guess I can come clean now," Adams said to Entertainment Tonight's Lauren Zima regarding the incident.
As Bachelorette fans know, Zac Clark ended up popping the question to Adams, who says that her fiancé was there to witness her panic! "I actually was freaking out. I was screaming, I was running all throughout the house," the current "Bachelorette" admitted. "He was with me, obviously, and it was a panic. But also at the same time, I kind of just played it off and it kind of just went away."
Adams dodged engagement rumours with humorous answer
Adams was even asked about the ring by Ellen DeGeneres when she appeared on her show a little while after making the post! "All I have to say is I’m just a girl... if I want to drink my coffee with some diamonds on, I can do that," she told DeGeneres, not wanting to fuel the speculation. "I like to wear diamonds all the time!"
Now that the world knows about her engagement, Adams can only laugh about the situation looking back on it! "Honestly, who doesn't drink their coffee in the morning and have a couple diamonds on?" she joked during her interview with Entertainment Tonight on Wednesday. "Doesn't every girl do that? No?" And although Adams is newly engaged, she revealed that she and Clark aren't in any rush to move in together!
Adams shared that she intends to continue living in California for the time being while flying out to see her fiancé in New York. "We’re going to just really take it slow, but enjoy this special time in our lives," Clark said, "and know that without this solid foundation and, you know, learning all there is to learn about each other -- everything else will fall into place."
