"It's hard to put into words how you truly feel about someone you love," he wrote.

"I guess I'll keep it as simple as I've never felt more alive than when I'm with you," he continued. "With that being said I still had to make fun of you, hope everyone enjoys the last two slides."

Commenting on her boyfriend's post, Booth joked: "So you're dating ET?"

Booth previously competed for Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s heart on his Bachelor season, which aired in 2018. Later that year, fans learned of her former relationship with Colton Underwood when he appeared on Kufrin's season of The Bachelorette.

Though Booth and Underwood, 29, attempted to make things work on Bachelor in Paradise's fifth season, they parted ways and he went on to become the Bachelor on season 23. Underwood, who dated winner Cassie Randolph until May 2020, later came out as gay.

Recently, Booth returned to Bachelor in Paradise for season 7. She made connections with Kenny Braasch, James Bonsall, Blake Monar and Aaron Clancy but ultimately left the beach single.

"Bye bye, beach. Thanks for the lessons, memories, relationships, and most importantly GROWTH. As someone who struggles to be present and share feelings, each Bachelor show was truly a cathartic experience," she wrote on Instagram after the season 7 finale aired. "Stepping outside that safe comfort zone is terrifying, but MAN is it rewarding! If you're thinking about taking a chance on something, anything just DO IT. I'm at a place in my life I never thought was possible, and I have Bachelor Nation to thank for that."

Booth added, "I may be done dating on tv, but I have a feeling the best is yet to come."
