“I was 32 when we met, and Justin was a fresh ripe 24,” “BTW I SWEAR he told me he was 27, which I rounded up to 28… so in my mind we were basically the same age HAHA.”
moreover, she added;
“Our age difference was never really an issue for us, our love was always strong and very real and that’s all that mattered,” “But truth be told, I could have gotten knocked up with his baby on that second date and I probably would have been over the moon… haha… ok MAYBE too soon, but I WAS smitten.”
The couple had dated for more than four years and welcomed their son Leo on August 5. Before finding love with Pasutto, Harris competed on Jason Mesnick’s season 13 of The Bachelor in early 2009 and won the third place in the show.
After that, she became the Bachelorette for Season 5 in mid-2009 giving her final rose to Ed Swiderski. Moreover, the pair ended their engagement in July of 2010 due to Swiderski's infidelity.
