Wonderwall.com is taking a look back at the celebrities who've ignited romances, taken them one step further, been devastated by heartbreak and everything in between for early July 2021, starting with this rekindled couple…Their love story has been tumultuous, but it seems like things are now in a better place. Almost six months after splitting from Clare Crawley, Dale Moss is engaged to his "The Bachelorette" leading lady once again. "They are engaged again, but a second proposal did not happen," a friend of Clare's told E! News. "Clare has been wearing her ring for months and put it back on once Dale stepped up and they decided to give their relationship another shot." However, their rekindled engagement doesn't mean they'll be setting a wedding date anytime in the near future. "It's more of a promise and commitment from Dale and there's no wedding planning at this time," the source continued. "They had a conversation over a month ago about their future and decided that they wanted to be engaged again…They aren't rushing anything and aren't even living together permanently yet." As Bachelor Nation fans already know, Clare and Dale fell for each other quickly when her season taped last year, with the model and former football player popping the question question by the season's fourth episode.

"When we met this past spring, the synchronicities hit us so hard and fast they were impossible to ignore. I felt immediately crazy protective over him and wanted to keep him for myself and get to know each other before the tornado (media attention) hit. We've had a few solid months of just us getting to know each other and I've loved every second of it." She also hit back at those criticizing her for moving on after two divorces and multiple headline-making boyfriends between them. "So yes 'another relationship' and guess what. I'm 38 — I'll do what I want," she concluded. A source told Us Weekly, which posted photos from her birthday vacation, that Christina and Josh "briefly met a few years ago at a real estate conference" when she was "still with Ant."
