Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert Celebrate 5-Year Wedding Anniversary: 'I'm So Proud of Us'
The couple met on the second season of Bachelor in Paradise in 2015 and married the following year
On Sunday, the Bachelor Nation couple shared loving tributes to one another as they celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary while on a romantic staycation at Windansea Beach in San Diego, California.
"Once upon a time, two people fell in love; and then, their love grew, stretched and multiplied. 🥰 5 years and a family of 5, can you believe it @tanner.tolbert!?" Jade, 34, wrote on Instagram alongside some throwback photos from their wedding day and a selfie with their three children — daughter Emerson "Emmy" Avery, 3, and sons Brooks Easton, 18 months, and Reed Harrison, 10 weeks.
"We've created a life of companionship, fulfillment and love through the ups and downs of life, and I wouldn't and couldn't do it with anyone else," the Bachelor in Paradise alum added. "We've celebrated each other through the highs and have held on to each other in the lows. Thank you for teaching, inspiring and challenging me to be a better me, even when you drive me crazy. I think marriage is a commitment and a beautiful promise to be someone's best friend forever, and I'm so proud of us and the family we've created. Cheers to choosing each other and to the rest of our life together💗💗."
In his own post, Tanner, 33, called Jade his "best friend" as he shared a photo of the couple in a romantic embrace while on their staycation.
"First of all, I can't believe it's been 5 years. Second of all, I can't believe how lucky I am that you said yes in the first place," he wrote. "You are exactly everything I ever dreamed of as a wife and as a mother to my kids. Thanks for putting up with me all these years🥂 here's to many more babe. Love you @jadelizroper ❤️."

On Saturday, Jade told fans that Tanner had "surprised" her with the beach getaway for their anniversary.
"Tanner surprised me with a beautiful staycation getaway for our 5th anniversary! 😍😍 I couldn't think of a better way to celebrate our love than spending it with our loves," the reality star told fans on Instagram with a photo of her, Tanner, and their two sons, taken by Emmy.
The couple met on the second season of Bachelor in Paradise in 2015. They tied the knot the following year in a televised ceremony at California's St. Regis Monarch Beach with 150 friends and family members in attendance.
"It blew my mind," Jade told PEOPLE exclusively shortly after their big day. "I loved the mood. It was exactly the way I had envisioned it."
Since then, they have welcomed their three children together, with Jade recently telling fans that she and her husband "aren't looking to expand" their family further for the time being.
