Fan favorites Abigail Heringer and Noah Erb stole viewers (and each other’s) hearts in Season 7 of Bachelor in Paradise. Their on-screen breakup led viewers to believe that the couple had called it quits for good — however, their love story didn’t end there.
Shortly after their split, the two rekindled their romance. So what are Abigail and Noah up to these days? Recently, the two marked a major milestone in their relationship, and they couldn’t wait to tell Distractify all about it.
In an exclusive interview with Distractify, the couple got candid about how life has changed for them since the cameras stopped rolling and shared their plans for the future. Here’s what we learned.
Abigail and Noah from ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ just marked a major milestone in their relationship.
In the months following the Season 7 finale of BiP, the couple adopted a bi-coastal lifestyle. While Abigail was stationed in New York, Noah was in California. However, in March, they went from being in a long-distance relationship to living together!
According to Abigail, it’s “been going pretty well.”
“I'm originally from the West Coast anyways, up in Oregon. So it definitely feels a little bit more of my pace over here," Abigail told us of her move, adding, “[New York] was fun. It just didn't feel like home.”
While being boo’d up with her BiP co-star has been a blast, Abigail admitted that adjusting isn’t easy. “I think when you move in with someone, you definitely get all the best parts," she said.
Adding, “And then there [are] moments where you’re like, ‘Okay, we're really different.'”
In those moments, Abigail asks herself, “How do we learn to maybe communicate in these situations?”
Despite their growing pains, she told Distractify, “We haven't had any deal breakers or anything like that. So I think that's a very positive sign.”
What’s next for the ‘BiP’ couple? Abigail and Noah are looking for a place to “actually settle down."
Although Noah hasn’t popped the question (yet), the couple has very real plans for the future — one of which includes moving down south. Noah revealed that their end goal is “finding a place to actually settle down." He continued, "And it’s looking like Oklahoma. That's where I want to be. I think she likes it.”
In the meantime, they’re focused on building their relationship off-camera. Luckily, their recent collab with GrubHub allows them to do exactly that.
Abigail and Noah teamed up with GrubHub ‘MasterChef’ Table for the ultimate date night.
Noah and Abigail take date night seriously. And thanks to GrubHub’s new premium delivery-only restaurant concept, you can too.
The MasterChef Table menu features 11 gourmet dishes that were expertly crafted by MasterChef alumni. “The GrubHub partnership, it's perfect for date nights,” she gushed.
“We love doing that because we turn [date night] into something bigger,” Abigail explained. “We're like, ‘Okay, tonight, we're not going to do any video games, we're not going to do any phone calls. We're just going to get a bottle of wine, get some food.”
“[We’ve] definitely been trying to still date while living together, if that makes sense,” Abigail added.
The MasterChef Table menu is available exclusively on the app now.
