"Nayte and I have always been goal setters. We talked about that, I have always been a goal setter," she said of their bond. "When he came in, our conversations that we had, we definitely really aligned with that."

She continued, "And so it's been cool to be a part of this experience and to make history in this way," before adding, "it's just kind of a trampoline for us with what we're gonna do." 

In an interview with PEOPLE published Tuesday, Young and Olukoya said they are just as happy now as they were when they first got engaged this summer.

"I fall more in love every day," Young shared. "I was fortunate enough to grow up in a family with a healthy marriage and I thought, I'm not going to give up until I have that. He's my person. And I didn't know I could love at this level." 

"It's so natural for us to be together. I've never felt the way I feel before," Olukoya added. "I'm all in!"

The pair also told PEOPLE that they've been "dancing, singing, and goofing around" since the show ended. 

"Now it's done and we're just two people madly in love going down this road," Olukoya said. "And we're each other's rocks for life."
