Six years after falling in love during The Bachelorette, JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers finally got married. The couple celebrated a dream wedding at a California winery on May 14, before enjoying a magical honeymoon abroad. Now that they’re back home, both Fletcher and Rodgers share additional tidbits about their wedding. A video shared by Rodgers on Instagram shows some heartfelt moments with his mother Darla Rodgers that Bachelor Nation fans won’t want to miss.
Here’s what you need to know:
Darla Rodgers made everyone swoon
Ahead of The Bachelorette’s wedding, Darla opened up about meeting her future daughter-in-law for the first time. Jordan shared a video of the special moment on his Instagram Page, and it seemed like this likely happened during the couple’s rehearsal dinner. In his caption, Jordan noted that this was “the perfect start to eternity,” and it was easy to see why he thought it was so magical.
Darla recalled when Jordan first told his family he would be out of touch for a while while filming the reality TV show. He stated he didn’t know if he would be gone for a week or several weeks. Saying goodbye to his family at the airport, Darla said he turned and shrugged as he said, “Maybe I’ll find true love, Mom.” The moment elicited a sweet reaction from everyone around the table, but there was more to come.
Jordan’s whispered admission sealed the deal
Towards the end of the video Jordan shared, Darla addressed the bride directly. She noted during the hometown date that she didn’t get a chance to speak to her son in person at all. She admitted that she’d been anxious to steal a moment with him, but the chance had never really arisen. However, there was a brief interaction that told her everything she needed to know. “One time, in a hug, he leaned forward and said, ‘Mom, she has the kindest heart. I love her.'” Darla continued, “And I remember thinking, well, I’ve said that all these years, someone who would love Jordan’s kind heart. And you both chose so well.”
Darla’s memory of that first meeting with Fletcher gave Bachelor Nation fans a valuable insight into Jordan that has never quite been seen on screen or even in social media posts in the years since. The “Bachelorette” couple has shared plenty with fans over the years, but until now, those revealing, tender thoughts he had at the time have been kept private.
The video also included highlights from the wedding itself, and Bachelor Nation veterans and fans alike went crazy over the video. In just one day, it was viewed over 200,000 times on Jordan’s Instagram page and received almost 500 comments. “So beautiful!!! You are all my very favorite Bach couple! Blessings for your marriage”, wrote a fan. “These are stunning congratulations to the most perfect couple in the bachelor nation,” shared with someone else. It may have taken six years for the “The Bachelorette” couple to celebrate their wedding anniversary, but based on that long-ago hometown date, it was always meant that way.
