JoJo Fletcher said, “Yay!! Congrats you two!!! Way to go [Ashley.]”

A new baby isn’t the only big news the couple shared recently. They opened up a cafe, Audrey’s Coffee House & Lounge, in Rhode Island. The menu has several Bachelor-influenced items, including drinks called “Take a Moment to Say Your Goodbyes” and “The Rose Ceremony.”
