"The Bachelor" couple Michael Stagliano and children's storybook author Holly Durst, from the London season of the TV series, are engaged. And Micheal is in double joy as his twin brother, Stephen Stagliano, also got engaged to former "The Bachelorette" star DeAnna Pappas. While Michael, Holly and DeAnna have all appeared on the ABC's TV shows, Stephen is the only one who didn't.
Michael confirmed his newly-engaged status on his Twitter page on Wednesday, August 11, writing "Holly and I are ENGAGED!!! WHAOW!" He also re-tweeted Holly's message which read, "I'm so happy!! Oh my goodness I have a fiance!" Beside posting the tweet, Holly also shared a pic of four of them.
Meanwhile, DeAnna, who previously bewildered her followers by stating "No, I'm not engaged" on Tuesday, August 10, finally confessed on her Twitter page on Wednesday, writing "Yes, today... I will finally admit its true!!!!!!! Finally, we can tell everyone!!!" On why she initially kept it a secret, DeAnna claimed, "You have no idea how hard it was for me & @StephenStag to keep this a secret! But, we wanted to enjoy it with our families first :)."
Still on her micro blogging site, DeAnna shared about when she and Stephen got engaged, saying "Stephen proposed to me on Memorial day weekend... different day from Michael & Holly. We each had our own wonderful engagement day." As for her and fellow "Bachelor" Holly's upcoming nuptials, DeAnna announced, "Yes, we are planning a double wedding."
DeAnna and Stephen were introduced by Michael and Holly. DeAnna was previously engaged to Jesse Csincsak during "The Bachelorette" 's season 4 but broke up months later. And ironically, Jesse dated Holly after he split from DeAnna.
