Meet Madison Prewett's husband!

After appearing on The Bachelor season 24, Prewett found her happily ever after two years later with now-husband Grant Troutt.

A 26-year-old speaker and minister to athletes and churches, Troutt made his relationship with Prewett Instagram official on May 5, after dating for five months. They both posted sweet carousels to their respective pages with heartfelt captions detailing their love for each other.

Fast forward three months, the couple got engaged on Aug. 31 after dating for less than a year. Troutt proposed in a romantic setting at the Breakers Hotel in Palm Beach, Florida.

"Grant was waiting for me and led me out to the beach, where he had candles and flowers and a Bible with my new name on it," Prewett told PEOPLE exclusively. "And the ring of my dreams!" She added, "He was definitely worth the wait."

In September 2022, Prewett and Troutt hosted an engagement party in Dallas. The Bachelor alum shared photos of the event on Instagram, showing off some of the decor, including peach and white balloon installations. Her sweet pictures included some snaps of the couple holding each other as they posed in front of the balloons and a sign featuring the first letter of their names. "You and me forever 🤍," Prewett captioned the post.

On Oct. 29, 2022, Prewett and Troutt were married in front of 400 people at his parents' home in Dallas, Texas. The "classy and elegant" wedding was extravagant from start to finish. There were thousands of white roses and nobody could miss the human-sized cake at the reception.

"It's like heaven knew I needed you," Prewett captioned an image of the newlyweds walking down the isle.

In April 2023, Prewett gave Us Weekly an update on married life with Troutt.

"I didn't have brothers, so I'm just learning the male brain," she told the outlet. "I'm like, 'Wait, this is how you think this is? This is what goes through your mind?' Honestly, in general, just being around a male [is new] — I'm just so used to being around females all the time."

Prewett continued: "We're just learning how to communicate, you know, [our] wants, needs, expectations. We have been just growing and learning so much. He is truly my best friend in the whole world."

Now that Prewett has found her person, here's everything to know about Troutt, from his basketball background to his billionaire father.

Troutt was recruited to play basketball at the University of California, Santa Barbara on a full scholarship in 2015, but retired a year later as a result of medical complications. He was sidelined for the remainder of the 2016 season with a hip injury, per his UCSB bio page. Prior to retirement, his primary position was a guard.

Following his athletic run at UC Santa Barbara, he transferred to Southern Methodist University where he continued his education from 2016 to 2019. He had several investment and business internships during his time in school.

He's very outspoken about his faith

With only 17 posts on his Instagram (dating back to February 2020), the majority of them include lengthy captions about his newfound love for Jesus and his journey in faith.

His first post explains that he's faced many highs and lows over the past few years, but has learned that Jesus "is the only thing that is ever gonna satisfy [his] heart." He wrote, "His love captured me in my darkest moments and I was met with a smile and a love that changed everything."

He added, "I promise nothing in this world, other than HIM, is going to ever bring life and a life WORTH living. I want to live a life of meaning and purpose and significance and that is found in following Jesus!"

He's also opened up about his faith on The Built Different Podcast, where he told host Zach Clinton about his difficult past and how he overcame affliction and adversity thanks to God.

He was nervous when he first met Prewett

When Prewett and Troutt publicized their relationships on Instagram for the first time in May, they each recalled what the past five months have been like since they initially met. The Bachelor alum even reminisced about their first date together, in which nerves were ever-present.

"It's been special since the first date: when u forgot to open my car door because we were both so nervous, when we barely touched our quesadillas at dinner because of our deep convos and intentional questions," she wrote.

Fortunately, the date ended on a high as she notes that they "[ended] the night riding around listening to Drake in the car on full blast for hours."

Troutt concluded his sentimental love note to Prewett with a similar tidbit, writing, "Could write a book on what I've learned from your heart, but I'll save that for another time. For now just know, like drizzy drake said, 'I got z's for these other girls I'm sleepyyyy.'"

He married Prewett in October 2022

Troutt and Prewett wed on Oct. 29, 2022, at his parents' home in Dallas, Texas. The 400-person wedding included a few Bachelor Nation favorites, including Victoria Fuller, Hannah Ann Sluss and Kelley Flanagan.

"We chose this location because it's unique and special to us and having all our friends and family there means so much," Prewett told PEOPLE. "I have always wanted to get married in the fall and we wanted a short engagement, so it couldn't be more perfect."

The luxurious wedding included thousands of white roses and a human-sized cake. But Prewett stole the show in not one, but two custom gowns by Nardos Design.

He and Prewett traveled to Mexico for their honeymoon

The newlyweds enjoyed a luxurious honeymoon at Las Ventanas al Paraiso — a resort in Cabo, Mexico.

Prewett shared several photos on Instagram from their first getaway as husband and wife, which included a private dinner, time by the pool and walks on the beach.

"Best honeymoon with my HUSBAND (still not over it!!!!!)," she captioned the carousel of images.
