The world may have just found out about Bachelorette couple JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers‘s romantic engagement, but the two have been sneaking around for months since taping Monday’s finale.

The happy couple revealed the secrets of how they’ve kept their secret romance going while the show was airing, including lying low in Bachelorette-provided weekend private getaways across the country.

“We’ve been in hiding – we bounce around every couple of weeks to these safe houses,” Rodgers told Kelly Ripa and Anderson Cooper on Tuesday’s Live with Kelly. “We’re not allowed to go outside, can’t be in the front yard.”

“You can’t be seen together?” Cooper asked.

“Nope, not at all,” said Rodgers.

Of course, rules and made to be broken and just because they were not supposed to be together outside of their “safe house” visits didn’t mean Fletcher, 25, and Rodgers, 27, didn’t see one another.

“There was one time she was staying at a hotel in Hollywood, and I kind of threw on a mullet wig and a trucker hat,” Rodgers said, explaining how he snuck in an unscheduled visit.

“No one knows this – I’m going to get in trouble,” Fletcher laughed.

So what exactly did the pair do while in their safe houses? “A lot of Netlix,” Fletcher spilled, explaining that they binged Bates Motel and American Horror Story. “We have nothing to do but just watch shows all day.”

It’s hasn’t all been fun though. Fletcher and Rodgers both admitted they’ve both really struggled with not being able to openly talk about one another. “We’re not able to publicly support each other and show people how happy we are,” Rodgers said.

“Now we can, which is nice,” Fletcher said, holding her fiancé’s hand.
