The Bachelor: Already married

See the wedding dress

The sound of wedding bells is undoubtedly The Bachelor’s ultimate prize, so no matter the reality show’s outcome, frontrunner Alex Nation has already won.

New Idea has obtained photographs of the mother-of-one tying the knot with Joel Porter – the father of her five-year-old son – in 2012.

Smiling for the cameras, the blushing bride is captured being kissed by her former partner and happily posing with her four bridesmaids, who are dressed in short, salmon-hued frocks. The couple celebrated their nuptials at Victoria’s Benito’s Restaurant, where Alex, 24, is a manager.

But while the aspiring actress was the picture of happiness as she prepared to marry the father of her child, things didn’t work out as she planned.
