Personal life[]

She met Ben Higgins when she appeared on his season of The Bachelor. She accepted his proposal at the end.

"I cannot believe that I'm standing here right now. That first week, sitting out there on the front steps of the Mansion with you and you asked me to trust you, I did completely. That night kissing you for the first time, that was the last first kiss I ever wanted to have. Coming into this whole thing I didn't know that love like this existed, I thought that it was a nice idea and I thought it sounded nice when people talked about it but I didn't really understand what it meant and standing here now I get it. You're the person I wanna spend my whole life with. You are my person. I love you. I love you!" - Lauren to Ben

"I came into this, honestly feeling unlovable, like I couldn't be loved or that I was never gonna find that person to love me wholly and then we go through this experience, that's in a journey, it's full of goodbyes. But Lauren, I never want to say goodbye to you. I wanna wake up every morning and kiss you on the face. I wanna go to bed at night knowing that in the morning I'm gonna wake up to the most beautiful woman I've ever laid eyes on. My desire from here on out, is to live for you, commit to you, love you, hold you, kiss you a lot. Lauren, I want to spend the rest of my life with you. Lauren, will you marry me?" - Ben proposing to Lauren

The couple settled in Denver. They starred in their own spin-off, Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After?. They ended their relationship in May 2017.

She began dating country singer Chris Lane in late 2018. They live together in Nashville, Tennessee. They got engaged on June 16, 2019. They were married in Nashville on October 25, 2019. Among the notables on the guest list were four of Lauren's fellow alums from The Bachelor, Amanda Stanton, Jennifer Saviano, and twins Haley Ferguson and Emily Ferguson.
