Personal life[]

During The Bachelor, Arie was torn between Becca and Lauren Burnham, but ultimately chose to propose to Becca.

"Arie, since I first stepped out of the limo I was in awe of you and just how cool, calm and collected you were, when I was a bundle of nerves. But since our very first conversation you just put me at such ease and made me feel so comfortable. It just felt easy and it felt right and the first date, you allowed me that night to just open up to you and be vulnerable, but there was no judgement there, you just let me be me and I knew I was falling for you and I was falling so hard and so fast and it scared med because I didn't think that I could feel so deeply for somebody so early on, but you proved me wrong. You've made falling in love with you easy, you make being in love with you easy and I don't want to ever stop loving you, and I love you so, so much and I'm just ready to do this thing with you!" - Becca to Arie "When I met you I was taken aback, you know, you are beautiful and elegant and... In that first conversation I knew that you were an incredible woman, and I needed to know more. And I think back on our dates, and I think back on meeting your family, and I think back on all the moments that we shared and the thing that stands out is that, we're a team, you know? And I am very lucky that you've been on this journey with me and through all of it you've given me so much confidence along the way. Because of that, my love for you is unmeasurable and... This morning I woke up, and I thought about you and I thought you and our kids together, I thought about us when we're old and I choose you today, but I choose you everyday from here on out. I love you so much! Becca, will you marry me?" - Arie proposing to Becca

On her season of The Bachelorette she got engaged to Garrett Yrigoyen.

"From honking up the driveway in a minivan filled with orange slices and diapers to fly fishing in your backyard, I knew that you and I shared something very special with one another. When we were building our dream home out of sand, talking about our kids, talking about our future, I knew that I loved you so much and I wanted to spend the rest of my life with you and wake up next to you and have you in my arms every single day in my life. I love you so much. Not just now but forever. You're my world." - Garrett to Becca "Before you go on I have something that I need to say. Starting out this dream, I didn't know what to expect. And I didn't know if there would be anyone in that group of guys, really for me. And since night one I saw something in you. I felt something in you so much so that you got that first rose, you got that "First Impression Rose" because, you know, right away, I felt something so strong and I reread my journal and you were the first guy I ever wrote about in it. And I wrote in it that you reminded me of home and you reminded me of one of the most important men in my life and that was my dad. This journey has been a roller coaster of every emotion but the one strongest emotion is love and I've been waiting to say it for the right person, I've been holding back because I wanted to be a thousand percent certain. Garrett Vincent Yrigoyen, I love you. I love you so much!" - Becca to Garrett

After leaving The Bachelorette, Becca and Garrett planned to move in together in the near future and maybe get a couple of dogs. However, by June 2020 Becca revealed that she didn't know where they stood in their relationship. They had a falling out when Garrett showed support for police officers during the Black Lives Matter movement. On September 1, 2020 she revealed, on her podcast "Bachelor Happy Hour", that she and Garrett had decided to end their engagement.

She met Thomas Jacobs on the 7th season of Bachelor in Paradise. They ended their relationship in Paradise, but rekindled their romance shortly after. They announced their engagement on May 29, 2022. Their first child, Benson, was born on September 21, 2023 (2023-09-21) (age 0). They were married at City Hall on October 13, 2023.
