It's Juan of the things he loves about her! "Bachelor" Juan Pablo Galavis posted a sweet Instagram snapshot of girlfriend Nikki Ferrell late April 9, and made sure to call attention to the word "love" in the caption.

The image, taken of 26-year-old Ferrell from behind, features the "Bachelor" contestant at the Children's Mercy Hospital and Clinics, where she works as a pediatric nurse. With her blonde locks swept atop her head in a bun, Ferrell wears a shirt that reads, "Pediatrics… our patients are cuter than your patients."

Galavis, 32, wrote beside the pic, "Mi Catira @nikki_ferrell LOVES her JOB and thats ONE of the things I LOVE about her... #NikkiTheNurse." The words "Mi Catira" when translated from Spanish mean "my blonde girl," frequently used in Galavis' native Venezuela.

The post comes just days after Us Weekly reported that Galavis had finally uttered the three little magic words to Ferrell. He had previously refused to declare his love on the "After the Final Rose" Special last month.

Galavis "has told her, 'I love you,'" an insider told Us. "They Skype and text every day and are in constant contact," the source added of the Miami-based sports consultant and Ferrell, who lives in Kansas City, Miss.
