'Bachelorette' Renee Oteri gets engaged

Sarasota native who made it to the hometown date with Juan Pablo finds love

The Bachelor's Renee Oteri has found her happy ending.

The Sarasota native and single mom, who was sent home after her hometown date with Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis, is engaged according to People magazine.  

The husband-to-be, whose identity has not been revealed, is reportedly an old friend.

Oteri was one of the fan favorites of this season's Bachelor.  She was one of two single moms vying for Galavis' heart.

In his People blog Tuesday, following the airing of The Bachelor: Women Tell All, Galavis had this to say about Oteri:

"She's a sweet, loving, caring, smart and affectionate person, but unfortunately my feelings were not there for her, and that's something I cannot force. At the end of it all, I'm very happy that Renee found someone, and I want to send her my congratulations. I hope to be invited to the wedding someday."
