Jared Haibon's Childhood: A Major Glow Up is shared by Ashley I ...

Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon are without doubt one of the best-looking couples to emerge from Bachelor Nation. Their adorable son, Dawson, is proof of their exceptional genes. However, there was a time when Haibon looked quite different than he does now.

WATCH Haibon Grow up and Glow Up

The reel starts off by showing a chubby Jared Haibon in childhood with the tag, Before I met him. The tag then switches to Now, followed by a series of images of the man Iaconetti has come to know and love. The reel's back caption starts off with the message, My husband is proof.

One viewer commented, "This is so fantastic!" Another wrote, "This is so beautiful!" This should be shown to every middle school kid, regardless of the age! I teach middle school for a long time and it's such a tough environment!

Jared was recognized as one of the Bachelor's most handsome men. I love seeing his pictures of when he was a kid and his glow-up! You two make the perfect couple! That may be true now, but it wasn't always the case.

A Love Story for the Ages

It is difficult to say whether or not Iaconetti would have reacted the same way if she had met him during his tense years. One thing is for certain, she believed in their mutual love from the beginning.

Fans could immediately tell that Kim Kardashian's superfan and lookalike met the rugged Rhode Islander on Season two of Bachelor in Paradise in 2015, and they instantly connected. They seemed to be on the high, but for some reason, Haibon just wasn't feeling it. This led to numerous meltdowns on Iaconettis part, who soon became known as the franchise's crying face.

Haibon and Iaconetti strove to avoid dating and being friends for three years, but the heart-on-her-sleeve beauty's love stayed strong. Haibon finally came around in 2018, and followers were both shocked and delighted. Another viewer commented, WOW! This is proof that soul mates will end up together no matter what.

Haibon told the New York Times that fans were coming up to him with phrases like We believe in love again. You give us hope.

Haibon and his wife Sofia announced their intention to have a second child in August, 2019, but not immediately. They want Dawson to be older when they try again.

Bachelor in Paradise's next season will premiere on ABC on September 27, 2022 at 8 p.m. ET. It will air twice a week, on Mondays and Tuesdays.
